I have a Facebook competition set up and I need to contact a fan individually to let them know that they have won.

I thought when I was using Facebook as my page I would be able to write on a fan's wall - but I can't. I cannot send a direct message either?

I can do it from my personal account but I would like to keep my personal page separate from the fan page.

Any ideas?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you are running a competition through your page, you will have the post regarding the competition on your page. The easiest way would be to post a "Congratulations" message with the profile picture of the winner. Many pages like Transcend India run contests through their page. Real fans who have 'Like'd your page will see it in their wall.
