Facebook sent this out recently to one of our clients who is using a personal page to promote their business. It is against Facebook rules to use a personal profile page to promote a business. Please see the note below:
According to our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, Facebook accounts represent individual people only. It’s a violation of these guidelines to use a personal account to represent a brand, business, group or organization. Personal accounts representing pets, ideas or other objects are also prohibited. Your account could be disabled for violating these guidelines.
If you want to continue to represent your brand, business, group or organization on Facebook, you should convert this account to a Facebook Page. During this process, your account’s existing friends will become people who like your Page, and you’ll receive a business account to log in and manage your Page and ad campaigns.
To learn more about the conversion process, visit:
When you’re ready to convert your personal account to a Page, click on the link below and follow the instructions:
If you already have a personal account, you can choose to add it as an admin of your new Page and then deactivate the newly created business account. Please note that maintaining multiple personal accounts is a violation of Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, and violations of this rule could result in all your accounts being disabled.
We’ve temporarily reactivated your noncompliant account so you can take the appropriate steps to convert it to a Facebook Page or deactivate it.
You can learn more about our policies by reviewing the Facebook Community Standards: https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards/
We’re sorry for any inconvenience and appreciate your help moving your information to a Page.
