Use a Facebook Business Profile! Not a personal page!

Posted by owensoundnaturalhappinessguide on December 20, 2011 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Even though there are clear advantages to using personal profiles as Business Pages, it is a practice that is becoming frowned upon. 

A Facebook Personal account as a Facebook page is against Facebook Regulations, and soon they will be deleting these pages.  Also, they can be blocked, and reported as having broken the guidelines.

Why?  well, it seems these pages can invite us to applications on their own if the participant is using an application created from a developer that uses viral methods to advertise their application.  But what does this mean?  It means that these apps access our information and then try to suggest that our friends add the app as well. So, in essence these apps can spam your clients if you are using your Facebook personal page as a business.  It also means that you could potentially give an app all of your clients personal information.

What can be done to rectify the problem?  Use the Business pages provided as they are made for that, they have better functionality, and you can customize them.

If you have a problem creating a custom page, then consider using our services.
