How to Create A Facebook Page

Facebook Pages get a lot of search engine respect. Even "big business" takes them as seriously as they do with their own corporate websites. Learn what the big deal is about, and how you can make your own from scratch!

There's never been a better time to get your online business going with a Facebook Page. Make it part of your strategy to tap into that *MASSIVE* Facebook population to get noticed, get selling...or just get attention!

What is a Facebook Page?

A Facebook Page, sometimes referred to as a "Fan Page," is a single page that you can create off of the Facebook.com domain for anything you want...a particular subject you like: a celebrity, a business profile, whatever your heart desires (as long as you have the legal rights to do so). Think of it as a one-page meeting place, with information, links, a message forum box, RSS and anything else you want. Best yet, anyone can create them. All you need is a Facebook account!

These days, everyone and everything important, famous or notable has a Facebook Page -- from President Obama, to Intel and Lady Gaga. The obvious question is "how do I get one for myself?" That's what this resource is all about!

Facebook Pages are important for a few reasons. They've been showing up high in search engine positions. You can get unlimited "fans" for your Facebook Page, and really tap into that massive audience that is 'Facebook.' It's an awesome way to get new people to discover whatever it is you have to offer. So, unless you want to create a social networking site the traditional way, a Facebook Page is almost like a free, specialized social networking mailing list that you can reach out to at any time!

How Do I Find the Facebook Pages Area?

For newbies, it can be confusing to figure out how to find Facebook Pages. Facebook changes its interface and appearance on a regular basis, and things tend to get re-named or move around. This happened once again in 2012, when Facebook completely re-organized the sidebar as well as the Pages listing.

On your main wall, look at the left hand column for a section of icons called "Pages." Hover over the title, "Pages," and it will be clickable while displaying the word "More" to the right of it. Once clicked, you'll be taken to a full list of your owned Facebook Pages, with a button on the upper right that says "+ Create a Page."

Go directly to the Facebook Page creation wizard by clicking this link. Onward to more tutorial goodness!

Create a New Facebook Page

You should see 6 major categories here. Click the one that has to do with the Page you're looking to create, and more options will pop up that will help you drill down further into a subcategory. So, if I wanted to create a Facebook Page for my personal website, I'd choose "Brand or Product," and then "Website."

When done, you can then type out the "Name" for your page. Be absolutely sure that you're happy with your Page name, because it will be in the Page's URL (something of interest to you SEO pros), and next to every post and reply you make on the page. Keep it short and sweet! If your Facebook Page is for your personal website named "JoesCarBlog.com," it would be best to name the page either "Joe's Car Blog" or "JoesCarBlog.com".

Depending on what "category" you choose, your Facebook Page will have different fields in its "About" area. So, some choices will give you a "working hours" or "awards" field, while others won't display these. These are all hard-coded for each subcategory.

Technically speaking, you now own a Facebook Page! As you can see, it's bland and needs some serious modifications. Next, we'll start customizing the page:

Major Parts of a Facebook Page

Facebook Page areas

The image above shows a typical Facebook Page - it's from the Facebook Page Tutorial that I created for you, which will remain in-tact so that you can see what I did.

In this resource, we'll go over each part, and what it means to you as a Facebook Page administrator. While everything looks simple enough, there are a lot of things you'll really need to know about each section of your Page. Using the numbers on this screenshot, here are the sections in this guide:

  1. Profile Picture: This picture is a permanent fixture on the upper left corner of your Page. It also represents you whenever you post information or links on the page.
  2. Page Title: Your page is as good as what it's named. Once you reach 200 "likes," it's permanent. The category, however, can be edited anytime.
  3. "About" Section: This small area allows you to include a very brief description of what your page is about, and should be used as a greeting for brand new visitors.
  4. Page Body: The main event of your page. This is where you post new information or calls to action, and where your Page fans respond to them.
  5. Page "Likes" Showcase: This often overlooked area is actually a big way to promote your other pages (or those of other Facebook Pages).
  6. Admin Panel: As an admin, only you can see everything within this region. This is where you'll be able to edit how and what the page displays.
  7. Cover Image: The "cover" image is a newer feature that lets you add a custom made dashboard graphic to your page to spice it up or draw attention to something.

1) The Profile Picture - The Facebook Page's "face"

Upload a Facebook Page profile picture
Upload a Facebook Page profile picture


Your Facebook Page's profile picture is important. Think of it this way: its the image representation of your page and everything in it. When people search Facebook and look for Pages, one of the first things that will attract their eyeballs is the Page icon you chose.

Now that you can see how important this image is, make it count. Create a great image that represents what the Page's subject matter is about!

A Facebook Page Profile Picture must be exactly 180x180 pixels. After being uploaded, Facebook will automatically resize it to 160x160. Because of this, the picture will lose resolution if it's a GIF or JPG, so, I recommend you use a PNG image instead!

2) Facebook Page Title - It's all in a name...make it count!

Change Facebook page name
Change Facebook page name

Make sure you're happy with your Page name, and make sure the spelling is on par. As previously discussed, changing the name of your Page is a problem once you've already saved it. Facebook remedied this. Kind of.

Renaming A Page

If your page has 200 fans or less, you'll be able to edit the name of your Facebook Page (don't confuse "Page name" with "URL," they're two different things - we're talking about the title of the Page). The bad news about this is the <200 fan cutoff. You'll have a major issue if your page has >200 fans and you desperately need to edit your Page name. It can't be done... the only option would be to re-start the Page from scratch (not an option for most).

If you desperately, terribly need to change your Facebook Page's name and you already have over 200 "Likes," the only way to do it is to delete fans until you hit #199. This is a pretty disrespectful thing to do, though.

Lowercase & Capitals...and Titles

All page names must begin with an uppercase letter. This is something that will make a lot of people mad if their brand or company name starts with a lower-case letter, like "eWhatever." You'll be forced to name such a page "Ewhatever."

This is a newer change Facebook made to Page titles. You might be able to get a manual review if your registered trademark has a syntax where the name starts with a lower-case (we'll review how registered trademarks give you an advantage later in the advanced tips section). After all, iPhone, iPad and all other such pages got it done.

3) The "About" Box - A sentence to summarize the Page

Facebook Page about section
Facebook Page about section


The little "about box" you see below your Facebook Page profile picture is what you'll need to give first-time visitors the scoop on what the entire Page is about - make sure it's brief, and don't forget to squeeze in a backlink to your site!

Don't go overboard here -- just a simple one-sentence description of what your Facebook Page is about will suffice! At the end of your description, you can type in a full URL (with the "http://www." before it) and it will appear as a live link right on your page.

4) Facebook Page Body Area - Get the conversation started...add some content!

The Facebook Page body area

You can post anything you'd like on your Facebook Page, in the exact same way that you would on your own Facebook profile. There's not much else to say about this, since I'm assuming you already know how to use Facebook :)

Promoted Posts

As of late 2012, there's a new catch...when you post something on a Facebook Page, it will only reach a fraction of your fans, because Facebook got greedy and started a new "Promoted Posts" feature where you have to pay to have your posts reach more fans. A single promoted post costs a minimum of $5, lasts 3 days, and can reach either current fans or fans + their friends.

Pin To Top

Another newer feature is called "Pin To Top." You can find it by posting something, then clicking "Edit" and choosing this option. It will cement that post to the top of your page, and it's a great option if you want to call attention to something specific.

Facebook created somewhat of a "Catch-22" with the new Promoted Posts feature. If you don't pay, your posts might reach around 1/4th of your fan base. Can't afford to pay to promote your posts? Too bad -- this is capitalism, baby!

5) Page "Likes" Showcase - How to showcase other FB Pages on your Page

Facebook Page favorites
Facebook Page favorites

A feature called "Add To My Page's Favorites" is a way to permanently showcase other Facebook Pages directly on your own (hint: this is awesome for bringing attention to other new Facebook Pages that you own!)

In order to get this done, visit any Facebook Page that you'd like to showcase on your page. For example's sake, let's look at Coca Cola's page . Click the little "gear" icon on the right, next to the "Like" and "Message" icons. Choose "Add To My Page's Favorites" and then select your Facebook Page from the dropdown. In doing so, Coca Cola's page will be featured as a "liked page" on your Facebook Page.

This can be un-done at any time, of course. Simply visit Coca Cola's Facebook Page again, go to the "gear" icon again, and select "Remove from my page's favorites."

There are plenty of advantages to using this feature, from associating similar pages you own with each other, to promoting your friend's page (and having him/her return the favor for you, etc.) to bring more traffic, awareness or attention to them.

6) Hovering Administration Panel - Only you can see it

Facebook Page admin section
Facebook Page admin section

Impossible to ignore: this huge administration menu hovers over the top of your Facebook Page. While it might look rather annoying, don't worry - nobody else can see it but you.

This menu has several important sections:

  1. Notifications: When you get a new "like" on a post, or a new post altogether, it will be shown here. It's basically a quick list of new things that have gone on within the page.
  2. Messages: This is one of the better features that Facebook added to Pages, allowing any visitor to send you a private message to your page. Only you can see it. Also, it is entirely separate from your Facebook Profile's personal messages, and only pertains to that individual Facebook Page..
  3. New Likes: It's simply a list of the most recent people who have "like"d your page.
  4. Insights: This is like Google Analytics for your Facebook Page, except it's done Facebook style. Clicking this chart will show you a large version, giving you details about exactly who is liking your page, and how it is trending over time.
  5. Page Tips: Facebook basically uses this corner to advertise a new app or feature. It pretty much never changes, though.

Additional drop-down boxes on the upper-right portion of this floating menu for "Edit Page" and "Build Audience" are pretty self-explanatory, and contain all of the other tools you'll need to update and maintain your page. Become familiar with them as soon as possible.

7) Cover Image - Decorate and stylize the top of your Page

Facebook cover image

This great feature allows you to assign a "header image" on your Facebook Page. Simply click that icon on the top-right area that says "Add A Cover" and upload one from your computer. You can use the cover image as decoration, or a complement to your strategy. Here, the New Jersey Devils used their cover image to announce a new "fan of the week."

Your Facebook Page cover image must be exactly 851x350 pixels. Be sure to make it be a PNG-24 image (instead of a JPG or GIF) so that it looks crisp and loses no resolution!

Publishing Your Facebook Page

Unpublished Facebook Page warning
Unpublished Facebook Page warning

New Facebook Pages with little to no content, no likes and pretty much nothing else updated will be treated with the warning: "This page has not been published. Learn about unpublished pages and publish this page when you are ready."

Here are two things to follow through with:

  1. Did you "fan" your own Page?: Seems obvious, but if a page has "0 fans," it's not going to get published. Give it a little jumpstart.
  2. Did you add any content?: Facebook won't see you as being a serious Page owner if your Page has no content in the body area, no Page profile picture and no "About" section filled out. Go ahead and add these things!

Advanced Tips

Get a "Vanity URL" for Your Facebook Page - Register a URL to look like "facebook.com/mypage"

Facebook Page Username
Facebook Page Username

No Facebook Page is truly professional until it has a decent vanity URL. What's a vanity URL? It's a short, easy-to-remember URL (like "facebook.com/mypagename"), unlike the default Page URL that looks something like "facebook.com/pages/My-Page-Name/0123456789".

Getting Permission Granted for Vanity URLs

In order to unlock your ability to name a Facebook Page, you'll need a minimum of 25 fans. Once you've gotten this many, visit facebook.com/username, and you should see an interface that lists a drop-down of all of your owned Facebook Pages. Select only the ones that have 25 or more fans, and you'll be able to name them.

A Huge Warning!

Please be extremely careful here, since this is yet another feature that is set in stone when finalized! Once you choose a name for a Facebook Page, you get one extra "do-over" to change it, and then that's it - it will remain that way forever. Make sure the spelling and grammar is correct, and that you're happy with your selection. Then, click Submit.

If you happen to take that one "do-over" and change your Page URL, be aware that your old choice will be gone forever. Nobody will ever be able to register that word again, including you.

Other Notable Things About Facebook Vanity URLs

Facebook has blocked the ability to register many possible Page Names, so, don't be shocked if you can't register something like "facebook.com/diamonds" or "facebook.com/cars." They're not available to anyone, regardless of who you are. Many of these were granted to worldwide organizations (but not corporations).

Note that since we're able to give our own Facebook profiles a vanity URL as well, both Facebook Profiles and Pages compete against each other for the registration of words and names. So, you might not be able to register that Facebook Page name you really wanted, because someone already chose it for their profile name. It's extremely frustrating for any business owner.

Facebook Page URLs can never have dashes or underscores in them, but they can use periods. You can register a Facebook vanity URL with or without periods, and you'll own both versions. So, if you've registered "facebook.com/mikes.marketing.blog", then you'll also own "facebook.com/mikesmarketingblog" and every other combination with periods in the URL.

There was a small handful of times where I was able to register Facebook Page vanity URLs right after creating a page with 0 likes. I'm not sure if it's a glitch, or if Facebook lets you do it for URLs that are not common words. Always give it a try right away, you might luck out, too!

Trademark Owners Get Advantages

Gaining control of your rightful FB Page name

In unfortunate scenarios where someone else already took your trademarked company name as a Facebook Page, you'll have a gigantic line of defense if you own a trademark for it. That's why trademarks are so worth their while!

Contacting Facebook for Trademark Violations

Let's say you own the company "Acme Anvils," you own a trademark on that name, and someone already registered "facebook.com/acmeanvils." You really NEED that URL for obvious reasons. Facebook will work with you on handing it over to you, its rightful owner, if you feel your trademark rights have been violated per their TOS for infringement. Facebook used to offer an online form to report these cases, but have now made it more difficult, as you'll have to contact Facebook the traditional way.

State Your Trademark Registration # and Case

When you report a trademark violation or wish to gain control of a Facebook Page name that represents your trademark, be sure to have your trademark registration number ready (it typically looks like "01/234567" in the US and "TMA123456" in Canada, and varies in other countries). Be sure to have a strong statement justifying why you believe this is infringement. If your case is weak, you probably won't be granted the Page URL. I've done it twice - once for a previous company I worked for, and another time for a registered trademark I own, and Facebook has been nothing but helpful and speedy in both situations.

Trademark owners are exempt from the "minimum 25 fans" rule for Facebook Pages in this case. Learn more about registering your own trademark -- I highly recommend getting one if you can afford it, since they carry countless protections and conveniences.

Promote Your Page

Suggest A Facebook Page To Your Friends - An initial push toward getting your Page some quick "likes"

Suggest a Facebook Page to your friends
Suggest a Facebook Page to your friends

Your new page only has one "Like," and it's your own. What's a quick way to get a bunch more? Why not suggest the page to your friends -- people who will willingly help you out!

Here's how to do it: go to your Facebook Page, and look for the drop-down box on the upper-right that says "Build Audience." Click it, and choose "Invite Friends." You'll now see a full list of every single Facebook friend you have. The bad news is that you'll have to manually check the box next to every single one of them if you want to suggest your page to everyone.

There's one more catch: when you suggest the page, Facebook won't allow you to attach any kind of note to the suggestion. Your friends will see a message in their Notifications window (it's the little globe icon -- the 3rd icon to the right of the Facebook logo on the upper left) that will say "YourName has invited you to like his page PageNameHere." Most of your friends will probably ignore it, unless you also private message them and let them know you need help getting more "Likes" to your new page.

Alternately, you can share your new Facebook Page as a new post on your personal profile. Kindly ask everyone to "Like" the page. Unfortunately, a large majority of your entire friend list might not see it, so do this during a time when most people are on Facebook (after work and dinner on a weeknight).

Put a Facebook Like Box on Your Website - Even major corporations are doing it!

One of the coolest ways to promote your Facebook Page is with a "Facebook Like Box." Want to get one? Go here, enter the URL for your Facebook Page, and tweak a few settings. Then, put the code on your blog or site!

Facebook Like Boxes display random fans from your page (all of them are represented by their icon and first name, and are clickable, bringing your to their profile page). It lists the number of fans for your page, and also includes a link going to the page itself. Overall, these Like Boxes are widely recognizable. Major companies are putting them on their pages to boost their social networking campaigns. You can further tweak how the Like Box works, too.

Ranking in Facebook Search - SEO within Facebook - who would have known?

Facebook search results
Facebook search results

Facebook has its own internal search engine for Facebook Pages. Above, I searched for "pizza," and this is what I saw. Facebook never made public statements about how these search results are compiled, but there's no doubt that the following factors are involved:

  1. Number of Likes: More likes = a higher ranking in Facebook search. There's no contesting it, and this will be true for any search you perform.
  2. Updates: The more a Facebook Page is added to (updates, pictures, polls, videos), the more likely it will appear higher in Facebook Search for its keyword/category query.
  3. Activity From Fans: The more a Page's fans interact with its posted content, the greater the chance appears to be for that page to appear in Facebook search results.
It's pretty evident that Facebook doesn't tailor its search results to your geographic location (at least, not in this point in time). When I searched, I got results for India, the Middle East & UK, even though I'm in New Jersey.

Viral, Trendy Things Work

Promote your page by jumping on the bandwagon

Regardless if you think it's annoying or not, the biggest trend to bring attention to Facebook Pages these days are the sharing of those stupid little eCards, picture-based quotes and sayings, and other internet memes.

Even if you hate going mainstream -- success may come by replicating these annoyingly popular methods for your own Facebook Page...if they're funny or memorable enough.

Many pages "force" Facebook Page interaction by re-posting irresistible top rated images from sites like Reddit. As a Redditor, I personally find it annoying and lazy, but it is a common practice, nonetheless.

Why not come up with one of your own, making a funny or interesting image related to your niche? Give it a try, if it makes sense for your Page's strategy. Meme Generator and SomeEcards are the most popular ones on the internet, and will let you easily create your own meme images.

Facebook Page FAQs

Facebook Pages vs. Facebook Groups

What's the difference? Which is better?

This is perhaps the biggest question in the realm of "Facebook Business." Should I create a Facebook Page, or a Facebook Group? Which is better, and how are they different?

Here's the deal: a Facebook Page can be seen as a "website within Facebook" for a particular subject. It's a static venue to bring a "voice" (YOUR voice) about a particular product or service to Facebook for a niche community to read and react to. That's why you see TV commercials where a company will actually advertise "Facebook.com/CompanyName" rather than their own "www.CompanyName.com" website. That's the power of a Facebook Page.

Some people "fan" things on Facebook because it adds to their persona and further defines who they are. It's also human nature to represent yourself for the things you find interesting, funny or relevant, and that's what Facebook Pages help accomplish.

Here's a comparison, to make things easier:

  • A Facebook Page is kind of like a website. It gets updated by you, just like a website would. Use it to promote your small business, your personal website, or something else you have tangible or intellectual/legal rights to. A Facebook Page can get a branded URL (like facebook.com/mypage). A Facebook Page is treated like an official representation of a brand, product, service or location.
  • A Facebook Group is kind of like a message board. It gets moderated by you, and its focus are the conversations that are posted to it by you and other members. It is central around calendar events and updates. A Facebook Group can not get a branded URL, and Facebook Group URLs are rather ugly, with a long string of numbers. Facebook made them this way, so that people who are not official representatives of an organization/product/etc. cannot have 'ownership' of an established piece of Facebook real estate for it.

A 2nd Facebook Account for 'Business?'

Is creating a 2nd account the right thing to do?

Does makes sense to create multiple Facebook accounts to manage individual pages? According to Facebook's terms of service, creating more than one personal Facebook account is NOT allowed. This is stated several times, and Facebook takes the issue seriously. In other words, I wouldn't attempt to create more than one account for the purpose of organizing Facebook Pages:

Facebook's Statement:

"Please be aware that managing multiple accounts is a serious violation of Facebook's Terms of Use. If we determine that an individual has more than one account, we reserve the right to terminate all of their accounts. Maintaining multiple accounts, regardless of the purpose, is a violation of Facebook's Terms of Use. If you already have a personal account, then we cannot allow you to create business accounts for any reason."

In essence, Facebook Pages nullify the need to create a 2nd Facebook account for your business. You're never allowed to have more than one account -- in doing so, you're risking that 2nd account AND your personal account getting banned at any point. If you've already created a 2nd account and don't know what to do, Facebook recommends that you convert the account to a Facebook Page.

Business FB Pages & Your Personal Account

Should my job's Facebook Page be managed under my personal one?

Most people are leery over the prospect of maintaining a Facebook Page for their full-time job within their personal Facebook account. Long story short - yes, you should create a Facebook Page in a personal account, rather than creating a 2nd Facebook account altogether. The Facebook Page will then be in the possession of that account, and only you can access it, unless you appoint other administrators.

Don't worry about being showcased on your Facebook Page - you won't be. In fact, nobody will ever know of the owner of a Facebook Page, unless they went out of their way to let it be known. Your profile name, picture, etc. will never be visible on the page. Not even when you post things on the page (when you do, the Facebook Page's avatar and name appears as the poster, instead of yours).

The FAQ point above this one mentioned that you're never allowed to create a 2nd Facebook account, even if it's for business. Well, here's the dumb part: there isn't a major corporation on earth that is stupid enough to allow one of their employees to have ownership of the corporate Facebook Page under their private account! They are all breaking Facebook's terms of service by either creating a Facebook account for business, or having their third-party creative firm do it for them.

If you really need to play by the rules, make sure an executive at your office has "ownership" of a Facebook Page and simply appoints you as an administrator.

Transfer a Facebook Page to someone
Transfer a Facebook Page to someone

Transfer A Facebook Page to Someone Else

Is this possible to do?

Facebook says that you can't transfer a Facebook Page to someone else. Well, that's not entirely true. You can set someone else as the administrator of the page, and then you can be demoted to a regular fan. Once that happens, they become the new "owner" the page.

If you want to delete your entire Facebook account, but not lose your Facebook Pages -- simply appoint someone you trust with your life as the Facebook Page administrator.

Then, delete your account...and create a new Facebook account. Visit the pages you transferred to your relative/friend, and "like" them. Then, have your relative/friend set you as the administrator. You'll be the page owner once again, and you can de-admin or remove your relative/friend.

When A Facebook Page Is "Cybersquatted"

If you don't own the rights, you can't own the Page

If you didn't already know, a "cybersquatter" is someone who knowingly registers a domain name of a trademarked product or company name. Back in the old days of the 'net, it was a good way to blackmail that company into paying you a large sum of cash for the name. Then came the Anti Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act of 1999. Now, it's a great way to get a company to force you to hand it over, or else.

Just like how you should never register a domain name with someone else's trademark in the title, you should never create a Facebook Page with one, either. In other words, don't create a Facebook Page called "Coca-Cola Bottles" or "Ford Truck Parts." Pages like this will be under a constant threat of being banned by Facebook.

Facebook's Statement:

"Only the official representative of an organization, business, celebrity, or band may create a Facebook Page. If you would like to create a Facebook presence for a celebrity or organization and you are not officially authorized to do so, we suggest you create a Facebook group instead, as these may be created and maintained by any user."

Facebook also cracks down on anyone attempting to "sell" a page, or use their page as a way to solicit affiliate links or spam a list of fans. These days, it may even be impossible to register a branded Facebook Page URL, due to the filters that Facebook has in place.

What is a Facebook Community Page? - What it means when your Page gets this classification

Facebook Community Page
Facebook Community Page

If your Facebook Page appears to be "just for fun" and is not an official representation of something specific, it might get classified as a Facebook Community Page. If this happens, you won't see much of a difference in the way things work -- the page will just appear differently in Facebook search, and in advertisements. You'll be notified if this happens right on your admin menu of the Page. If you disagree with it, you can remove the "Community Page" designation and have it become a regular page.

Typically, if you edit your page and go into the "Basic Information" section and designate an "Official Page," your Facebook Page will be classified as a Community Page.

Facebook Page Analytics

Intro to Facebook Page Statistics - Marketers, are you paying attention?

Facebook Page statistics
Facebook Page statistics


If you're a marketer or are creating pages for any kind of promotional or corporate purpose, you are probably wishing that your Facebook Page had Google Analytics. Well, here's something that's close enough: Facebook has built-in analytics for Facebook Pages!

Based on the tabs above the chart, here are the 4 main components of these analytics:

  1. Overview: The main dashboard showing a line chart correlating the posts on your page, the number of people talking about (mentioning/sharing) them, and the weekly total reach (the number of people who have seen your Page's posts on their Facebook wall). It also states both static and variable statistics from "likes" to weekly trends.
  2. Likes: This data is priceless if you're in business on Facebook. It has pinpoint demographic data about gender and age, countries visiting your page, cities, languages, and devices used to "Like" your page. This is data the kind of proprietary information that you will never get from any website analytics package -- it shows the true marketing data prowess of this social network.
  3. Reach: This dashboard looks very similar to the "Likes" dashboard, except it shows you who (and how many people) your Page updates have actually reached. A "reach" is when someone actually sees the stuff you've posted. Lately, reach has suffered with Facebook Promoted Posts' requiring you to pay to get a greater reach. So, this is a good "damage report" to see how far your "unpaid" campaign has been going.
  4. Talking About This: For most people, this area will be "grayed out" since it requires a decent number of people to constantly be mentioning your page or its posts (a minimum of 30 people at a time, to be exact). If active, it shows you the gender and age of the visitors who are "talking about" your page. At the bottom, two charts show 7-day spreads of data for Page visibility.

My Facebook Page Doesn't Have Analytics!

You'll have to "unlock" this option...here's how:

Quite simply, your Facebook Page won't get its analytics feature (called "Insights") unlocked until you get at least 30 Likes. That's why you'll want to get the ball rolling by inviting your friends to "Like" the page, so that it will start catching on and increasing the possibility that their friends, and their friends' friends will "Like" it as well.

I hope my Facebook Pages tutorial helped you! Please leave a comment below. Once again, thanks for all of your comments and questions. I hope you're on your way toward making a kickass Facebook Page!

      I am new to Facebook Pages. I just started a page and now I'm trying to figure out log in to it to make changes and how to find it in a search. My understanding is that you log in to your admin account and can then edit it from there, BUT how do you get to it? I'm very confused with this process...any help is appreciated!

      ThX,

      [in reply to CussinSailor] When you log in, look on the lower left hand side of your screen and click the graphic that says "Applications." Then, click "Ads and Pages." This takes you to your list of Pages.

      I don't see anywhere that it says to "create a page". I see "create a badge" and I see "create an ad" but nothing about creating a page and nothing under the applications either.

      [in reply to hanraj2] Hi Hanraj2: does this organization have a registered trademark ID? Sometimes, Facebook will recognize an organization even though a page has never been made for it, and will not allow anybody to create that page unless you work directly with Facebook. Try sending them an email through the "IP infringement form" link I listed above, and explain your situation. This happened to me at my full time job - they will help you for sure. Be sure you have a trademark ID # ready, or they will not help you.

      Under Transferring a Facebook Page to Someone Else... how do you demote yourself once you've added another administrator?

      Transferring a Facebook Page to Someone Else

      Like Facebook says in the screenshot above, you can't transfer a Facebook Page to someone else. Well, that's not entirely true. You can set someone else as the administrator of the page, and then you can be demoted to a regular fan. Once that happens, they become the new "owner" the page.

      @PAparks: There is an error in the article. You CANNOT "demote" yourself or have another page admin remove you as the Admin of the page if you are the page creator.

      See http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=15708

      This leads to a real problem. Since most pages are created for businesses, you run the risk of having an employee create your company's Facebook page and then have them leave the company. If the parting was not amicable, the ex-employee can then deface your page and there is nothing you can do about it. You CAN'T KICK HIM OFF!!!

      The only real way to handle this is to violate Facebook's rules (They FORCE you into doing this because they still don't have a solution to this problem after over a year!) You need to create a fake employee at your company that has their own e-mail address. Then have that fake user sign up for a Facebook account and create your company's page. That way, the e-mail address associated with the page creator is always in control of the company and you can reset the password on the Facebook account when you terminate the employee.

      Be forewarned, it is against Facebook rules to create fake users. So don't do something dumb like name your user FirstName: "Hewlett" LastName:"Packard" if you work for HP. They are constantly scanning for fake accounts and will shut them down (taking your company page with it). Instead use a real-sounding name, a real-sounding e-mail address, have some people become "friends" of this fake user, and have the fake user post every once-in-a-while.

      Hope this helps.

      Hi Pixelrage. Great tutorial.

      However, there's something wrong with your logic about how "Adding a page as a favorite" works. If you are on a page on Facebook, you can add it to YOUR page's favorites, not what you have written--which you make sound as though you can have some other page "favorite" yours. Not the case.

      Just thought you'd want to know that so you can clarify it.

      @Insegnante: Thanks, Insegnante! Check to see what your friends' settings are for showing feeds on their main page. At the bottom, there's a link that says "Edit Options." Ask them to make sure your page isn't in the "Hide" list. Also, their "Number of friends" count might be too low, and might not be showing enough feeds. I set mine to "999" so that I don't miss anything from my friend list.

      This is an incredibly useful post. I have one question: in the second paragraph, you mention: "Oh, and it's an awesome way to create a mailing list that you can take advantage of at any time!" I'm curious as to what you are referring to. The reason why people use their personal profiles to create business pages is because they can send an e-mail (message) to all the "fans". Some use Groups for the same reason because Groups can send e-mails to all their members. However, the big disadvantage with Facebook Pages is that there is NO way to send an e-mail to the fans. I'm optimistic that this will change in the future but this is a big turn-off for some businesses. Sorry if I didn't get it right. Thanks for the great post!

      @anonymous: Hi Diane, I've actually just changed the wording on that as it did sound a little awkward! What I meant is that FB Pages behave much like a mailing list. (i.e., amass a fan list of 10,000 people, and reach out to all of them at once with a single post on your page). Thanks for pointing this out!

      @Pixelrage LM: Great! Yes, I believe that a Facebook Page is a micro-blog whose RSS gets posted on the Wall of every Fan. How great is that? Unbelievably great. But let's be hopeful that we'll be able to send private messages to the fans as well. But on the other side, I can understand Facebook not offering this feature as it will be abused and might discredit the value of Facebook Pages. Love your site!

      @anonymous: Hi Dale, I think the only way would be to do a screen shot. Simply hit the "printscreen" key and then open MS Paint (Start &gt;&gt; Programs &gt;&gt; Accessories &gt;&gt; Paint), then press Ctrl V to paste it. Then, save it and import it into your flyer (That's considering you're using Windows and don't have Photoshop). It will get the job done, though!

      @anonymous: Hi Sylvia, if you delete the account that 'owns' the Facebook Page, then the page itself goes into limbo. Make sure that a relative or very close friend gets appointed as page administrator. Then, you can delete your account, and your relative/friend becomes the new "owner." Then, he/she can simply reinstate you as the administrator again, and you can remove them as one.

      @Pixelrage LM: I am not sure I understand. Would it be easier to just start over with a page that is not connected so heavily to a profile page? We have way more "friends" than "fans" and will soon be upon our 5000 limit. Do you have to have a profile page and a facebook page? I guess I don't understand how you can manage a profile page and a facebook page since they aren't linked to each other. Sorry for being a facebook nerd!

      @anonymous: Hey Nikko, thanks for visiting! Those tabs can either be add-on modules that you can download for free, or in many cases - people simply hire programmers to add those features to them. In your admin menu, look at the bottom for "More Applications" and click "Browse More," you'll find a TON of extras you can add on to the page!

      I have a page for myself, but it is quite empty in the info section. I want to make it more like my personal page, and add lists of books, movies and TV shows that I like, but that option is not available.

      In my personal page, those categories are already there. And if i type a film name, it will pop up automatically, and I just have to click on it to add it.

      But that same function does not seem to be available in a page.

      How can I add more categories and information about myself?

      Any ideas? here is the page. It's so empty. Do i have to type in my own categories and make my own lists?

      "...you would not want to create it within your personal account, but you'd want to create a new Facebook account entirely, for the business."

      What about Facebook's TOS that says a person can't have multiple accounts? As the 'person' administering a business account, doesn't that jeopardize my personal account? Or is this some loophole of judicial corporate personhood? Or is it that I simply need a different email address and physical address for the business account?

      I haven't seen anyone else post on this issue and Facebook's documentation is either vague and prohibits this. Any clarification would help.

      @anonymous: Hi Kevin, in the case of FB business accounts, it should be fine. Think of it this way: facebook.com/dell isn't being housed in some employee's personal Facebook account! If you were to do this, it would be best to create a new account under your company's email and mailing address. You're right though - this is not truly made clear on FB's help section whatsoever.

      ok proper stressing out about this now! why do facebook keep changing and hiding the most obvious things!!!! Im not sure how old this post is or if they function and layout of facebook are slightly different for US and UK accounts but there is no 'application settings' under 'account' on my UK facebook account. I have several facebook pages, and to create a new one all I used to do is go to any page and at the bottom it said 'create a page' that link is no longer there so how do I actually access the 'create a page' page without knowing the direct link? The create a group link is right there on my feed page but not the create a page.

For example, I have a "Get Started" tab. The first item is "Tell Your Fans" and it will import my contacts. Does that mean my contacts from my personal profile, and if so, will they automatically be notified of my page or can I select them individually there?

Stand out from the crowd and make the most of that space by uploading a nice large image! (Of course, this pushes some sidebar data down the page.)

Only things that appear on your actual profile wall will show to your friends, but not on your front page feed (I hope this makes sense).

      Thanks for walking those of us who are still wary of FB through making a fan page! I am allergic to FB, but I did it.

      I used Static FBML -- http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/how-to-customiz... -- to create a landing pane for my fan page featuring my own custom HTML and CSS, because, well, I want to decide what people see first.

      Here is the result:

      http://www.facebook.com/pages/Greek-Mythology-Triv...

      I am waffling over which parts to allow fans to post in, which I shouldn't. Spam is a concern. Chiefly, I can't decide if it's a good or bad idea to open the floodgates to links. (Someone's posted an acai berry ad on yours, by the way.)

      Thank you for this tutorial!! I acted on extremely bad advice and deleted myself as the sole administrator of my business' page (I was the creator, also). I now cannot manage the page (my personal profile says I have no pages to manage), and anyone can post on it. There don't seem to be any answers on any of the fb help forums. 2 people said they had some luck with the fb copyright people re-instating them as administrators. I've filled out one form and was told by fb that they couldn't manage the page. I've filled out a second form and am waiting for a response. If you have ANY ideas, I would greatly appreciate it!

      @anonymous: Hi Susan, unfortunately that cannot be done *unless* your actual Facebook Account is also your business account. You wouldn't be able to post as your business' FB Page while logged in as yourself on your personal FB account.

      Pixelrage LM 6 years ago

      @cdugan: They're most likely creating new Facebook Accounts and naming them after the business, then adding friends as a personal account would. I think it's legitimate in FB's eyes as long as the account is actually converted to a Business Account.

      @anonymous: Is anyone actually a member of the Page anymore? Or better yet - a page Admin? If you un-fan a page and you're the admin, that's basically the end of your ability to be admin again...unless your friend/partner is already an admin, and can re-instate you.

      ssblog 6 years ago

      Awesome lense. Great information. Just one point: the description of "Facebook business accounts" gives the impression that creating a business account is a viable option if you don't want to identify a specific business page with your personal account. When I tried this FB gave me a big warning that creating and managing more than one account, FOR WHATEVER REASON is a contravention of their user agreement. Which makes you wonder under what circumstances anyone could start and manage a business account. This seems very odd to me, as though they haven't really thought this through properly. They obviously have made it a primary objective to protect the purity of their accounts - to cut down on spammers creating multiple accounts I suppose - and in the process force everyone else to conform to what seems like a ridiculously narrow way of approaching this issue.

      @ssblog: Thanks! You raise a good point, and it's a very ambiguous topic on Facebook's part. For instance, an LLC, S-Corporation or other organization is considered to be 'its own entity' for tax purposes...so, would this mean that the LLC's Facebook account is considered separate from yours (you = the human being creating the FB account for that LLC?) That's something that isn't explained by Facebook. Also, if they were to enforce situations where a person who creates a 2nd business account on Facebook were to get penalized, all of the big names: Verizon, Ford, etc. - would also have their accounts expelled, which would obviously never happen. None of those companies created a situation where they hired an employee and said "by the way, you may not own a personal Facebook account because we need you to create one for the company."

      @anonymous: Thanks Ande, glad it helps! If I were in your situation, I would create the account under the company name, and under an email address like "info@mycompany.com" - since it's the company's account, everything about it should be registered for the company. Here at work, we hired a top 20 media firm to put together our entire campaign. It's running under a company-owned email account like the one I've listed above.

      Hi All,

      Our Facebook Page (as opposed to our website) serves as the hub of our online presence,

      and is being developed as a true mashup implementation i.e. it includes YouTube-based

      video's, Flickr-based pictures, tweets from Twitter, blog posts from Tumblr etc.

      That being said, the (fan)page itself includes a fully-functional, embedded website, as

      well as integrated social media channels....all within just one (of the ten) Static FBML

      tabs that we can add to a Page. Needless to say, visitors first land on our "embedded"

      website, and from there they can switch back and forth - between our social media channels

      and the embedded website itself. All of our marketing material too has been changed to

      encourage people to visit us at our FB page (rather than our traditional .COM website).

      We've also made use of social sharing and social bookmarking strategies to allow for our

      online sites to be spread far and wide.

      Another thing you may notice is our consistent personal+corporate branding...which

      comprises of both a social badge (applied on all of our online sites, and listing all our

      URLs - amongst other things), and our corporate identity/colors.

      Finally, we're actually providing incentives for our visitors to both "Like" us, as well

      as to visit often....by providing both, discount coupons for our products and services, as

      well as regular posting of tips and tricks for Microsoft Office applications i.e. Word,

      Excel and PowerPoint. These (coupons and tips) will only be available to those who "Like"

      us.

      Still can't access 'ads and pages' from my home page. I know how to access it but it just annoys me that I can't do it from the sidebar. I followed your 'how the heck do I access facebook pages' section but it doesn't follow true?

      This sequence below doesn't seem to exist on my account?

      To do this, select "Account" &gt; "Application Settings" on the upper right of the screen, then find "Ads and Pages" on the list (if it's not on the list, choose "Authorized" from the drop-down box, and the list of applications should be more expansive)

      I don't have application settings under account, nor ads and pages, nor authorized? In fact facebook states that you cannot create these bookmarks.. http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=16662

      @Socialize-Media: You're right - looks like they've changed things again. In order to get that icon to appear, you have to have used the application (I'm guessing a use = a creation and update of a Facebook Page). It looks like FB is listing my last used apps at the top of the list. Overall, this was yet another bad idea on their part :/

      How can I get people to "like" the page before they get to the content? My page is one of those where you can come to the page, read it, and then leave without pressing "like", is there anyway I can get more people to like my page?

      @anonymous: Hello, you'd have to set the page to open to a particular tab which is "locked" unless the visitor clicks the "Like" button. Just note that this is kind of seen as spammy and a little underhanded, there were lots of pages like this (like the "This girl killed herself after her father told her this" page which forces you to Like the page first). It would be better to just be more traditional with getting likes, and by promoting it through friends and other people who would find it interesting.

      Thank you for this very informative posting. I created a Fan page for a client and found it to be a truly frustrating experience (and I'm a software developer). The FB user interface for developing pages, the "if you choose this, you'd better get it right the first time because you can't change it ever again!" selectors, and the inability for anyone to figure out where the heck things are (FB designers have apparently never heard of a menu bar) makes me wonder how this tool became so popular. And of course, visiting the FB help pages for the purpose of actually getting useful help is a rather comical exercise (the words, "utter futility" immediately spring to mind). I've bookmarked this page to help save me from this the next time. Thanks again for taking the time to do what the FB monkeys should have done in the first place.

      @anonymous: Hey Paul, thanks -- and I totally hear you. For such a big and important organization, Facebook is ignoring key elements of how these pages should function. You SHOULD be able to change the category. You SHOULD be able to edit the title. However, these things and many other features don't exist, and it's very frustrating. If you ever visit Facebook's "Facebook Pages" page and click the tab for conversations, it's jam packed with Page owners who complain about these simple, dumb things...sometimes you wonder if they're even listening. My current biggest problem is that one of my project websites has a FB page whose slogan has changed. I set the name of the FB page as the old slogan, and the page has a few hundred followers, so I can't change it. I'm basically screwed.

      Thanks for this - I just made a page for my local historical museum (Historisch Museum Haarlem), and I really needed these tips - I basically clicked as I read your post. Of course I eventually want a kickass page, but I am just relieved it is up there now with a picture. An additional tip for anyone reading this: use something else than Chrome to get your profile picture in there!

      I especially appreciated your advice about the fact that I could go ahead and make this page as myself and give others admin rights without worrying that I needed a new facebook account just for the museum. Now my next challenge is what to do with the fact that I want English-speaking AND Dutch-speaking users to feel at home with this page...I need to go figure out how the multi-language options of fb work now!

      @anonymous: Wow, i thought i was stupid or something. I totally concur with your comment. Today I created a first FB fan page for my website, and it was a completely frustrating experience. I too have strong software developing background. The page i created does NOT look at all like any of the tutorials i have taken the time to read before tempting the experience. It seems the notion of tabs at the top of a page has disappeared, how come i still see them on pages i visit everyday? The pages and steps i went through to create the FB Page did not look like any of the tutorials i have tried to follow. The buttons and options wre not at the same place. No Publish option either, i am not too sure if my page if actually live or what. And of course the FB help provides no help at all, it seems it is not being updated to follow the constant changes to the interface. What a disappointment and an unproductive environment to work with.

      Thanks for your tutorial, although as far as i can see, it is already partly out of date!

      Great article - very helpful. I work for a marketing company and we're more and more frequently being asked to set up FB pages for our clients. Am I correct in thinking that the only way we can do this within Facebook's T&amp;C's is to ask the client to set the pages up using their own profile and then make us an administrator so that we can populate and manage the page? Also be good to know if it's possible to have more than one business page attached to your profile? I recently created two pages under the same profile however one of them has now disappeared without any notification from FB. Have tried contacting them several times but no response :-(

      Great article, really helpful. Perhaps you can answer another question though? I've searched high and low for an answer to this one, to no avail!

      I have already created a business page for my employer and he now wants me to create about 6 more pages for the company representing the company's different branches in different cities (eg. Sample Company London already has its own page and now I need to create a page for Sample Company New York, Sample Company Tokyo etc.)

      How do I do this?

      We are only a small start-up website so don't have a lot of staff, so I've just been using my various personal email addresses to create the pages. I cannot work out how to create more pages without always using a different email address.

      I hope this makes sense and that you can help!

      Although I liked this lens because it is informative, I found face book to be legal hacker and legal spammer. It downloads spyware and even prevents people from accessing it when it knows they want to delete their accounts.

      They have 5 steps for security protection to your account. The process is long, because when you took time to complete it, you will read in the next page: you took too much time to complete etc, they present in the second step what they think pictures of your friends to identify them, but those are not personal pictures, but images uploaded by those friends. I think they implement this to prevent people from accessing their accounts especially, when those people intend to delete their accounts. However, I am not sure why they do this.

      Hello,

      I read the fb tutorial, its really nice. But I don't know in my fb profile I have no fb page link. Fb has updated again or not. I mean I don't understand from "Click the "Pages" Iconâ section of the tutorial. Can you tell what the problem is?

      Regards.

      This post is fantastic. Thank you for being so detailed. There is a new Application that has been launched by Expand2Web as part of their SmallBiz theme for Wordpress. The Theme allows you to build pages within WordPress, click save, then your Facebook Page is updated. http://www.eileenlonergan.com/facebook-page-built-... it is super easy and it looks just like your Website!

      Hi there,

      thanks for a great tutorial! I have created a page for my business. How do I send out an inbox to all of the fans of the page? I need to send weekly messages. I know there is a way to send an update, but my fans are telling me that these are not coming to them in the form of an inbox! suggestions??

      I have a "connect with us on facebook" button on my website, however when a customer clicks it, it takes them to the log-in wall of facebook and not the actual page with a prompt to log-in above?

      Hi maybe you can give me some insight we had a help page for zooworld it has over 20,000 members yesterday morning the page just disappeared. we still see it in a search but all members and all admin can not accesses it .. but if you put in ZWHG Players helping Players. ( there are 2 now that show up in the search because we started a new one ) I think my question is if the page is gone where there is no way for anyone to get in how is it that it is still there and is there any way to get it back ?

      it wont let me post the link but this is part of it

      Do Facebook business pages obtain even IP addresses of their "fans"? Is that part of the statistics also? Or do they get only the basic info (gender, age, location, interests etc.)? Thank you for you help.

      I am beginning to do Facebook Fanpages for local business clients. It is an amazing job as so many people haven't a clue how, but are very interested in being on Facebook. With the recient changes to Facebook it has become so easy to build a unique, branded and potentially viral fanpage. thanks for a great lens!

      Cheers,

      Very informative, although a little outdated. Facebook's product page looks a little different these days with trouble logging in and creating a specific product page, not an account page.

      This is a great resource! Thanks for posting it. However, I have a question that I CANNOT find an answer to! I just got a job working for a nonprofit foundation and no one knows how to access our facebook page. Is there anyway to access the page when we have no clue who had the account for the initial set up?

      Hi, you really did a great job. I wanna ask that my company want to create FB page for our brand. However, the name that had been used by a community who is our fan. The problem is I can't contact them : the creator may not manage the site anymore (they haven't updated any thing for a long time). Besides, we don't want to post the reason we want to contact them on the wall (since there's no personal message for fan page). Do you have any suggest that we can take back our name???

      Many thanks in advanced

      Hi, very interesting article. I used it to setup my page :)

      You could maybe mention that one of the downsides with pages is the number of bugs left (especially with photos and tagging).

      Fantastic, in-depth article on creating a Facebook Page. I was searching for advice on creating my FB's name - should it be with a space or not (eg: CleverClay or Clever Clay). Your entire article is awesome. And I leaned a couple things I never knew. Thanks!

      @atenatm: Hello, and thanks! In your case, I would pursue the "Trademark infringement form." Nobody but the rightful owner of a trademark has the right to use/represent that intellectual property [even Facebook stated this]. Try doing this through the TM infringement form shown in my article above, and be sure to be a little "pushy" to get those people at Facebook knowing that it's a serious matter. Hope this helps!

      Hi Pixelrage,

      Just been hitting a little issue with our Artof2 Designs page. We have posted up some photo's of an engagement party album &amp; shared the link on the couple's pages, but their friends &amp; family can't seem to comment on the photos. Do you know why? Is this because they are not fans perhaps?

      Do you know if there is a way to easily get people to like the page before they can see the album?

      Thx

I work at a language school and we already have a fan page and we had a place which I managed to check into but the appear as separate pages. I would like people to check in using our fan page as we already have some likes. I have tried changing the settings and the type of business but it didnt work.

      I have always wanted to "like" some pages which is of interest to me.

      But have not done so due to privacy issues.

      Question is can the page administrator view my friend's list??

      What info. can the page administrator view??

      Thanks and looking forward to your answer.
