How to Convert your Facebook Profile to a Facebook Page

Did you know that you can now convert your Facebook profile to a business page? This is an excellent new addition to Facebook. Learn how to convert your Facebook profile into a business page below.

First, before we discuss how to convert your Facebook profile to a business page, what is the difference between a Facebook page and a profile? It is really quite simple. A profile allows you to have friends and it is for personal use. A page is for business or fan clubs (among other items) and it allows you to have people “like” your page. The main difference is that Facebook pages are meant for business. This ability to transform a page to a friend profile will greatly benefit those who have accidentally set up a friend profile and have been using it as a page is intended to be used.

Now learning how to convert your Facebook profile to a Facebook page is easy, simply use the new Facebook profile migration tool.

If you can’t read that lettering at the top it says, “Profile To Business Page Migration. At this time only your profile photo and friends will be moved to your new Page.  No other content will be moved.  You will still be able to log in from your original email address and password.  Learn more. Select which type of Page you are below.”

As we can see if you choose to migrate Facebook will only transfer a few items, your profile photo will be moved and your friends will turn into likes. Once you arrive at this page, you simply select the type of page you would like to transform your friend profile to and wallah! You are good to go.

This new feature will make people who set up their profile incorrectly very happy. Nice move Facebook. And now you know how to convert a Facebook profile to a Facebook page!
