Facebook Business Page Setup

A Facebook business page is a great way to allow your fans and user base to follow you on Facebook. Unlike a personal account, there is no limit to the number of people who can join your Facebook page.

Having a Facebook page lets you stay in touch with users who wouldn’t otherwise give you their email, or users who simply prefer Facebook as a method of staying in touch.

Here’s how to create a Facebook business page.

Step 1: Click on Pages and Ads

The button for creating a Facebook page is slightly hidden. You can access it by clicking “more” on the left hand side of your Facebook home page.

Step 3: Choose a Page Type

There are two different types of pages you can create.

The first is a community page. These are pages created by people who aren’t the official organization.

For example, if you’re a fan of The Matrix, you can’t technically make an official Matrix page. However, you can make a community fan page for the Matrix.

You can make a community page for just about any topic with almost no risk of infringing on copyrights or trademarks, because it’s clear that you’re not trying to compete with the official page.

On the other hand, you can make an official page for any business that you own, whether it’s a local business or a web business.

Choose your page type to continue.

Step 4: Select a Category

Choose what kind of page you’re creating, then select a category and subcategory.
