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!
