Facebook affords her users ONE opportunity to convert their Facebook personal profile accounts into a Facebook page. The new page borne from the users account bears all the friends on that account to Facebook likes. This means if I’d about two thousand (2,000) friends on Facebook before moving the motion for a conversion, then I get to have about two thousand (2,000) likes on that Facebook page. This can be on he plus sides as you don’t have to work your as* off to raise such substantial number of likes on a new page especially by begging and lobbying (inviting) your Facebook friends to like your page.
What Happens When You convert Your Facebook Personal Profile Account to Page?
So here’s a little heads up for you before you dash into the field.
==> Your profile won’t get deleted. This is probably your first question: Will my Facebook profile account be deleted if I convert it to a Facebook page? Well, you’ve got your answer. Your profile remains intact, including your messages, pictures, blah blah blah.
==> Can you convert your Facebook profile to page more than once? Well there is a saying, “you can’t eat your cake and have it”. Like I stated at the beginning, it’s a ONE-time opportunity. Once you’ve converted a profile to a page, if you like play smart to transfer it to another account to hide the trace of association with he profile and the page, you CAN’T convert your Facebook profile to Facebook page more than once!!!
==> Will the Facebook page likes also increase as per new friend requests to the profile after conversion? Well, after you have converted your profile to a Facebook page, if you like accumulate 1000 new friends or followers on that profile, it has nothing to do with the page and so won’t be accounted as new likes to the page, unless you invite them to like the page.
==> What happens if I delete the page? Well, on request, Facebook takes 14 days before permanently deleting a Facebook page. Once your Facebook page is deleted, you can then actually be free to convert your Facebook profile to Facebook page again.
==> Can I merge a converted page to another Facebook page? Well, you can merge your converted profile page with an existing Facebook page provided their names and other information are same and interrelated.
So with those basic questions briefly addressed, lets now dive into the procedure or steps for converting your Facebook profile account to Facebook page.
To convert your personal account to a Facebook Page:
The first thing you should do, especially if there are more than 1000 friends on the account you wish to convert is to change the name of the account to that of the proposed page unless you intend keeping or retaining the name of the account. This is to avoid difficulty that may arise when changing the facebook page name after the conversion.
==> Go to your account, click Settings and click Edit Your Name.
==> Then Go to https://web.Facebook.com/pages/create/migrate
==> Click “Get Started” and follow the automated process.
==> Then your Facebook personal account will be successfully converted to a Facebook page.
When you convert your Facebook personal account to a Facebook page, the following applies:
==> You’ll have a personal account and a Page after conversion
==> Your profile picture and cover photo will be transferred to the Page, but posts on your profile won’t be carried over to your new Page.
==> The name on your personal account will become the Page’s name.
==> Tools to help you move info from your profile to the Page will be available for 14 days after conversion. The “Profile to Page tools” give you the opportunity to:
- Give useful information about your created page.
- Choose friends to automatically like your Page. My dear, just click “select all” instead.
- Finally, Add photo albums to your Page.
- And your page is now fully ready!!!
==> You can manage the Page from your personal account as well as add other account(s) to manage the page.
