This is a feature which was seen first on the social media site to promote some sort of an engagement or a relationship between certain Facebook pages and its members/users/fans.

Users with this badge are considered to be the fans that have the most engagements to the page. As a reward? Well, they will be rewarded accordingly based on what the Facebook page’s rewards are.

How can a person achieve or get a top fan badge?

Webtrickz, a website dedicated to share some of the unknown tricks and tips in social media and technology, shared a certain technique on how a Facebook user can get this top fan badge.

Unfortunately, according to them, there is no such procedure that can allow a user to have this top fan badge. It’s tricky and it’s quite difficult. Facebook, on the other hand, said that you can either be a top contributor or a top fan by being one of the most active people on that page.

Meaning, you should interact a lot of times not only with the page, but also to the people who interact with it. You can do things such as: sharing, commenting, posting, and watching some of the videos of the page. 

When you are able to achieve the top fan badge, you need to enable it in order for other people to know that you are one of the top fans of the page. To do this, go to the Top Fan Settings and turn it on by toggling the Display button.

Know who other top fans are on a page

You can also be aware of the other people who are top fans on a specific page. To do this, you can visit the page and click on Community. From there, you will see other people who are considered top fans by the page.

This action is not new after all. In fact, one trend started and it was called the copypasta wherein users will paste a block of text and/or message to somehow try to troll and to mess with newer users.

It is sometimes an inside joke that only older users will be able to understand. So, it can be safely assumed that this is an origin to that.
