We have had quite a few questions and concerns from our artists about the differences between a Facebook Profile Page and a Facebook Fan Page. It’s important to know the difference – because they can be used to market your artwork and grow your business!

Here are the details about a Facebook Profile Page:

This is for individual users and is created by visiting Facebook and signing up for an account. You’re putting your “Face” on Facebook. It’s your name, picture, video of your kids, etc. Posting updates in your life makes it easy for you to connect with your friends! You’re posting your status updates, videos, pictures, sending messages, writing on walls, and socializing within Facebook. A Facebook profile should NOT be used as your business page.

Here are the details about a Facebook Fan Page:

Once you create a Facebook profile you can use that account to create a Facebook Business Fan Page for your business. This is where you can post business information: events, videos, photos, specials, promos — and encourage your fans to ‘like’ you, post testimonials and help spread the word about your business stories.


**It’s important to know the difference between the two – because you don’t want to mix your personal life with your business! It’s not appropriate and very unprofessional.
