How To Create a Facebook Fan Page

  1. 1. How To Create a Facebook Fan Page Facebook Fan Pages are a great way to promote your business, product or company though communication with people who become fans of your Page. They appear in public search engines such as Google and help to drive web traffic to your site.
  2. 2. At, click on the advertising link at the bottom of the page. This will take you to the Facebook Advertising page, which is where you sign up for a Facebook Fan Page.
  3. 3. Click on Pages at the top, which will then take you to Facebook Pages. Click the green Create a Page button to create a new Page.
  4. 4. Choose from the three options to select the type of business or service you wish to promote with your Page. Choose carefully, because you cannot go back and change this. Type in the name of your Page. Be sure to double check your spelling as the name of your Page cannot be changed or altered once it has been created. Review the terms and check "I’m the official representative of this person, business, band or product and have permission to create this Page." Then select Create Official Page.
  5. 5. If you already have a Facebook account: Log in using your e-mail and password. Depending on the purpose of your Fan Page, you might want to create a separate work-related Facebook profile if you don't want the Page tied to your personal profile account. However, no one can see who runs the page if it is connected to your personal profile. If you do not have a Facebook account: Fill in the necessary fields to activate your Page and select "Sign Up Now!" After signing up or logging in, you will then be taken to your Page so you can start editing and adding content.
  6. 6. To edit your page, click on the Edit Page link on the left-hand side of your Page. You'll then be taken to a screen within your Page to adjust items such as settings, wall settings, mobile and applications by way of the links located just underneath. So in Settings, for example, click on Edit and you'll see that you can select restrictions of who can see your Page based on age and country. You can also change the Published Status here.
  7. 7. Customize Your URL Once you reach 25 fans, you can create a customized URL, known on Facebook as a username. So instead of:!/pages/Nashville-TN/Tennessee-Association-FFA/ 85805538804 , you get something more simple, such as: . To do this, once you have enough fans, go to and click "Set a username for your Pages." But again, choose wisely – this is the only chance you have to create a username.
