Converting a Facebook Profile to a Company Page

Did you know that Facebook allows you to convert your profile into a company page? This is great for people who started on Facebook as a profile but also allowed people they do not know to follow them and their product or service? Since the early days Facebook added pages as a way for businesses to promote their goods and service. This however has left many people with a very public personal profile page, some would like all of their current followers moved across to the their business page, but this can be a slow proces as you have to plead with people to like your page, and really this never works.

Facebook actually has a solution to this. When you convert your profile (timeline) to a Facebook Page, they transfer your profile pictures and add all of your friends and subscribers as people who like your page – very simply. Here is a link on how to do this, but remember to follow the backup plan!

This does leave you with the problem of having to update the remaining profile page, however this will not be much of an issue. Here is some information from Facebook, be sure to follow their instructions to a fault!

To avoid losing important content, we recommend taking these steps before you convert your profile (timeline):
Download your profile (timeline) 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.
Appoint a new group admin or a new Facebook Page admin to any groups or pages that you manage. The account you’re converting will lose these admin rights during the conversion process.
