Convert Your Facebook Profile

April 25, 2011

How To Convert Your Facebook Profile To A Business Fan Page:

Facebook started off as a pure social network. As time passes, its creators and users both begin to realize its value proposition in the business world. So, Facebook launched “Pages” for business users analogous to “profiles” for personal users. In the business world, profiles became pages, followers became fans, the user interface changed to have a more business-centric appeal but the essence remained the same.

The launch of Facebook pages left many businesses wondering if they should now build a page or a profile? Those with existing profiles had a dilemma of whether to abandon their profile and build a page, have both a page and a profile or perhaps look for a means to migrate their existing profile into a business page.

Facebook recently launched a migration tool that converts a Facebook profile to an official Page with the click of a button, transforming friends to fans in the process. This is a welcome change to the cryptic process of creating a page from scratch and starting with an empty friends list.
