I created a "fan page" for my photography, and want to set it up so that people have to like the page to gain access to comment on the page's wall and photos. I cannot find any settings to do this, how do I do it? I know another girl has hers set up that way and would like to do that with mine.

What app are you talking about? Facebook? – Al E. Jan 19 '12 at 15:07
Is this what you want to do? binkd.com/social-media/… – JMax Jan 19 '12 at 15:31

Previously, it was possible to disallow users from commenting before liking a page. But this is now not possible within official Facebook settings. All Facebook page walls are open to the public to comment.

In order to accomplish preventing someone from commenting you will need to set up a like "paywall" via programming.

Even this will be unavailable once facebook migrates all pages to the timeline layout on 3/30/12 – Dez Mar 14 '12 at 5:09
