I thought it would be helpful to show you exactly how to create a facebook fan page! I’m a very visual learner, so I’ve created this post for all the other visual-learners out there, with screenshots from when I created the Facebook fan page for blogging on the side. — If you are wondering WHY your blog needs a Facebook page you can find out here.
First, log in to your personal Facebook account. Don’t get distracted by cute babies or wedding announcements (one of the harder parts of this tutorial). Stay with me…
Click the ‘like pages’ option in the side bar to the left (or you can type in facebook.com/pages)
Next, click the green ‘create new page’ button, this will take you to a screen showing you all the different category options for your page, and you will be prompted to select one.
Once you’ve selected the category your page falls under, you are ready to start inputting the information about your fanpage! From here on out you can get as personal as you would like! I definitely suggest having your blog address on the front page of your FB page, that way no one has to do any extra clicking to find your blog address. You can do this by including the link as part of the short description on your page. If the link isn’t there, just click the description and it will take you to the edit page and allow you to input it there.
And there you have it! Your page is all created, and you can start inviting your friends and followers to follow along! Send out a status update to all your friends, suggesting that they like @yourpage and invite them personally from your page’s dashboard.
