Why would I want to Convert my personal Facebook profile into a public Page?

To begin, according to Facebook’s terms of service, you cannot use your profile to represent anyone or anything other than yourself or your business. You will no longer have access to your account if you use a personal profile to represent a business, and do not convert that profile into a Facebook Page instead.

Creating a Facebook Page for you as a brand or for your organization comes with a tonne of benefits as well, including the following: 

  • You will have access to Facebook Insights, the opportunity to share admin access with your colleagues, and the ability to create Facebook ads if you convert your Facebook profile into a Page.
  • A Facebook Page is, without a doubt, the superior tool for your organization, regardless of whether you’re satisfied with the design of your profile or not.
  • Caution is warranted if you plan to press a button in the hope that it will move all of your friends to a page that has been liked. It won’t work. You can transform your profile page into something akin to an influencer page, enabling users to follow your posts.
