If you started a personal Facebook page for your Morning Show before Pages was available, or because you didn’t understand the difference, Facebook now has a solution to convert your personal page to a business page without losing the fans you already have.
-Facebook personal pages cap you at 5,000 friends
-You won’t lose the fans you already have; your friends will be converted to likes
-It is against Facebook’s terms of compliance to use a personal page as a business entity
-You can accumulate likes without manually approving them
– You can use apps that allow you to run contests, create content for fans only, and more
Although we feel you should make the switch, there are a few cons to prepare for beforehand. For example, wall content and photo galleries from your personal page will not be transferred. Click here to read this article on Inside Facebook for more information. You can also use the Facebook Help Center to guide you in making the switch.
