Another Facebook tweak I am going to discuss today is Converting your personal Facebook Account into Fan Page.  Yes, it’s an amazing trick of which many Facebook users are not aware of. Actually it is recommended for those Facebook users having a lot of friends and followers. Once you convert your Facebook account into business page, all of your Friends and followers will be converted to page likes. Your profile picture will be become the display picture of your Page and your account’s username will become the username of your Fan Page. All other data associated with your Facebook account will be deleted permanently including Photos, Videos, and Notes etc.

Why to Convert Facebook Account into Fan Page?

Actually, it’s a violation of Facebook terms of service to use personal Facebook account for fulfilling Business needs. If you have created a Facebook account to promote your business, products or something like this then you are violating Facebook terms of use. Also, if you are a public figure, you can convert your Facebook account right now to Facebook Page. You will still be able to login at Facebook with same account details but you will then only see Pages created with that account, Pages you can manage and your newly converted Fan Page.

Also, an individual Facebook user cannot have more than 5000 friends and if you have reached this limit then you can convert your Facebook account into Fan Page.  You will also be able to see important details related to your fans including gender, geographic details, people talking about, views count of individual posts etc. Promotional/advertising tools are also available to Facebook business pages and by using those tools; you can target fans and expand your business.
