It's against the Facebook Terms to use your profile to represent something other than yourself (example: your business), and you could permanently lose access to your account if you don't convert it to a Page. If you're using your profile to represent a business, there are many benefits to converting your profile to a Page:
  • Pages are designed for businesses and organizations, with features that help you connect with customers and reach your goals.
  • You'll have access to Page insights, where you can see metrics like which posts people engage with and visitor demographics like age and location.
  • Page roles can let you give other people access to edit your Page.
  • You can create ads and boost posts.

By creating a Page, you can use more tools and share with a wider audience. Converting your profile to a Page creates a new Facebook Page that's based on your profile. You can only convert your profile to a Page once.
When you convert your profile to a Page:
  • You'll have both a profile and a Page after conversion.
  • We'll transfer your profile picture and cover photo to the Page, and the name on your profile will become the Page's name.
  • You can select from your friends, followers, and pending friend requests and add them as your new Page's followers. See more information in the section below.
  • You can choose which photos and videos to copy over from your profile, but keep in mind that views and other metrics remain with your profile and can't transfer to the Page.
  • If you're converting a verified profile, please note that your verified badge will be removed from your profile, and you'll need to re-submit your new Page for verification.
  • You can preview all changes before publishing your new Page.
  • When you've finished setting up your new Page, we'll ask you to check your privacy settings on your profile to make sure you're sharing what you want to share.

Once your new Page is published:

  • Your profile's followers, friends, and friend requests will get notified that you've created a new Page.
  • The profile followers you choose will automatically follow the new Page and will be removed from following your profile.
