Here are the easy steps to migrate a Facebook profile to Facebook page:
- First thing to do is backup your current profile. This is VERY IMPORTANT! Facebook will download all your wall posts, friends, pictures, events, profile info, etc. and zip it up into a large file. The process takes Facebook about 1 hour to run, depending on the wealth of data you have stored on your Facebook account. To run a backup, click on account -> settings -> download your information.
- Once you have received an email from Facebook with your .zip file of stored information, follow this link to the main migration page.
- Select your business type from the six possible options and fill out the short information prompts (company type, address, phone number) and hit “Get Started.”
- You will then be directed to your new business page. You will notice that your profile image will be imported from your previous profile but your fan total will be listed as “0″. Don’t worry, when you refresh your page, you will see the number quickly rise to your pre-existing fan/friend base.
