I am trying to set up a Facebook fan page and now it just shows my personal information. I don't want to show my personal info, just my business and Facebook is not very helpful. Does anyone have any help they can give me on how I can set up fan page instead of personal profile?

I only have a personal facebook page so I hope it is the same. If you go to the account tab, you will see privacy settings. You should be able to change the settings there.

If you do a search in the forums you will find lots of posts regarding this. Good luck.

I tried to search it in the forums before I posted my question, but I only found like 3 forums and none of them were really what I was looking for. Maybe I did it wrong. I'll try again I guess.

Go to my business page (the link is in my signature, but it could be any business page) and at the bottom on the left of the page is a link that says "create a page for my business." That's the most direct way to do it!

Yeah I clicked on the link of Facebook that says to create a page for a business or product, but then it asked me for all my personal information and when I clicked to publish it, it looked like a normal personal facebook page. I don't get what I'm doing wrong. I thought someone else might have encountered it because Facebook help just says that personal information can't be removed.

I THINK, you have to get a minimum # of fans before it changes to a fan page. I can't remember exactly where I read that info though.

I just did this yesterday! When you go to the FB homepage where you sign in, look for the link that says "Create a Page for a celebrity, band or business." It's right below where newcomers would sign up. Click that link and it's a really short process from there. Now where I had problems was when I created my Fan page, I couldn't find it afterwards! So, I ended up creating three of the same fan pages before I finally found that once you are signed into your personal account, on the left hand side column, it says Ads and Pages- click there and it will take you to your Fan Page. HTH!

When you get to 25 fans you can get a vanity page name, so it removes the code from the end of the address and puts whatever neam you want there instead (go to to do that once you get to 25 fans)
