Whilst it’s great to see so many dentists getting on board with social media – most notably Facebook and Twitter – I am still stumbling across personal Facebook accounts being used as business pages. This is a big ‘no no’ and before long, Facebook will delete these and you will be left with nothing, and having to build up your ‘likes’ again from scratch.
There is a very simple way to convert your personal account to a business page – and EVERYONE that is still using a personal page (you will have ‘friends’ rather than ‘likes’) needs to do this.
There are some easy-to-follow instructions on the Facebook website – I’ll include them in this blog also – but if you get stuck, give us a call here at Dental Design on 01202 677 277 and we’ll be happy to help. (Don’t forget we can also design your Facebook / Twitter / Google + pages, etc for a more professional feel).
Since personal accounts are meant for individual people, they aren’t suited to meet your business needs. Pages offer more robust features for organizations, businesses, brands and public figures. Learn more about Facebook Pages.
Maintaining a personal account for anything other than an individual person is a violation of Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. If you don’t convert your noncompliant account to a Page, you risk permanently losing access to the account and all of its content.

When you convert your personal account to a Facebook Page, we’ll transfer your current profile picture and add all your friends and subscribers as people who like your Page. We’ll also make your account’s username the username for your Page.
No other content will be carried over to your new Page, so be sure to save any important content before beginning the conversion.
To avoid losing important content, we recommend taking these steps before you convert your personal account:
