How to Turn a Personal Profile into a PageFrequently, businesses and organizations,and public figures mistakenly create a personal profile instead of a page.There are many advantages to having a page , rather than a personal profile, for your group, business ,or organization. For example: pages are not limited in the number of ‘Likes’ they can have,other pages can tag your page,making it easier to do cross-promotions,and there are numerous Apps only available to pages. These easy steps will help you convert your personal profile into a page,so all your ‘friends’ turn into ‘Likes’, and your profile pictures will be transferred.
First-Save Your Facebook Profile InformationWhen you convert your profile to a Facebook Page, the Facebook program transfers your profile pictures. and adds your friends as people who like your page. However, no other content will be carried over to your new page, so be sure to save any important content before beginning your migration. To avoid losing important content, do the following :
- Download your profile information. You can download a file that contains all of your sent, and received messages and all of the photos and videos you’ve uploaded to Facebook.
- Set up a personal profile, if you don’t have one already,and ‘Like’ Your page using the new personal profile.Appoint your new personal profile as admin of any groups or pages that you currently manage using the profile. The account you’re converting will lose its admin rights during the conversion process.-Remember to include any networked blogs in this conversion as well.
