How to Change a Facebook Personal Page to a Fan Page


Many businesses see Facebook as a way to connect with their customers and to share updates, coupons and other types of specials. Unfortunately, quite a few companies create personal profiles for their business as opposed to a more appropriate Facebook Page. Having a personal profile for an entity that is not a person goes against Facebook's Terms of Service, but luckily, Facebook has a built-in tool to help businesses convert their personal profile pages into Facebook Pages.

  • Open your Web browser and visit the Facebook home page, then log in to your account.

  • Visit the Facebook Page migration tool.

  • Click the button that corresponds to the type of Facebook Page you want to migrate to. For instance, if you're a local business with a Facebook Profile instead of a Page, choose "Local Business or Place" and complete the required fields, and then click the "Get Started" button.

  • Enter your password into the provided box to confirm the migration of your Facebook Profile to a Facebook Page.

  • Type the letters shown in the "Security Check" box, then click "Submit." Your Facebook Profile is now a Facebook Page.
