Weddingwire said to make a fan page so I did by following there link. Any free advertizing is a good thing. icon_smile.gif but now I'm confused.
How do you get to fan pages and do many people view them? I have a page on facebook and I know how to use it and love it. I'm just confused on the fan page and how I can look at others fan pages. icon_confused.gif

I don't know, but you may want to post a link to your fan page as your status update... if you post a link here, I'll become a fan!

What does it mean to become a fan? Why is that a good thing? icon_confused.gif

Hi back Michelle! Can't wait!

I don't know how to make a fan page...I'm kind of down on Facebook right now. They changed their format and I don't like it. Maybe I am alone on this, but I just almost want to close my account!
(Sorry to be so borish)

Not sure if this will help you, but....

You can either invite people to your fan page to join or someone would have to put in a search for whatever your page is about and then they would find it that way.

If you want to find other fan pages (like, Bon Jovi icon_biggrin.gif ), you type in Bon Jovi in the search box at the top/right side of the facebook page. When you hit enter, it will bring up everyone that has created a fan page for Bon Jovi... just like if you were searching for a person, as well as the 'official' fan page for that person/group/tvshow, etc...

If someone has created a fan page for whatever it is you are looking for, you should be able to find it with a search. This will also pull up official pages (i.e. like Bon Jovi's official facebook page will be listed along with regular person created Bon Jovi pages). Then you can choose whatever ones you want to look at.

I saw your post on forum and typed the name of your business on facebook and it didn't come up. I just joined facebook myself and am just starting with cake decorations and wanted to check your profile out. but the name of your business didn't come up anyway, maybe your real name did, but I don't know that. anyway, i'd be a fan also.
