Is your business set up as a person on Facebook?

Your business probaby has a page on facebook.  Promotion of businesses on facebook and other social media sites is now very popular.  Many businesses are set up on facebook with personal profiles or in other words they are set up as if they were people.  It's easy enough to recognise this as the page will show the number of "friends"it has on facebook.  This means it is a personal profile rather than a proper business page.  Problems?  - There are a few  problems with this:

1) People on facebook can "only" have 5000 friends.  This "facebook friends limit" is quite reasonable and practical for people but you really want as many "fans" for your business as possible.  You may have reached the 5000 mark and now you can't add any more.

2)  You are breaking Facebook's terms and conditions and could lose your profile (quote)  "Since profiles are for meant individual people, they aren't suited to meet your business needs." ...  "If you don’t convert your profile to a Page, you risk permanently losing access to the profile and all of your content."

3)  You can't add a facebook "fanbox" to your web site with a personal profile.  This would allow people to "like" your business on facebook directly from your website.  More about this here.

The good news is that there is a way out. Your business facebook profile can be changed into a proper business page.

Your businesses friends can be converted into facebook "fans"!

The limit of 5000 can be removed.
