Social media has been getting a lot of hype over the past several months, so as to be expected, there have been many questions raised.  A simple question I get frequently from practices across the country is, “How do I know if I set up a Facebook Business Page or if I set up a Personal Profile?”

First, you need to have a Facebook Personal Profile before you can set up a Business Page.  There is a quick method for telling the difference, check to see if you can “Like” the Profile.  If you can “Like” the profile then you have succeeded, because only Business Pages can receive a “Like.” Conversely, Personal Profiles allow you to “add friend” only. 

If you have found that you weren’t successful in setting up a Facebook Business Page, go to another Business Page and click on the “Create Page” button located at the top right corner.

This will initiate the process for setting up your Facebook Business Page.
