Nothing says “newby” faster than using a Facebook profile page as a page. Not only that, but it violates Facebook rules, and you run the risk of it being shut down.
In the past, the only way to fix the problem was to take the page down and start over with a business page. In the past few months, Facebook has engineered a process that allows you to transition your profile page to a business page. To change your page, follow Facebook’s directions here.
How do you know if you’ve incorrectly used a profile page as a business page? There are many differences, but here’s a simple test: If you can send and receive friend requests, you have set up a profile page, not a business page, and your page is incorrect.
Be sure to back up your page before you convert it (instructions included), and understand that the change is permanent — so be careful!
