Yes, you read right! Facebook has finally set up a way for people to convert their personal profiles to business pages.
First, why convert a profile to a page?
Because it’s against the Facebook terms. If you have your business on a personal profile, you run the risk of having it deleted.

Things you need to know before converting your personal profile to a page:
- All your confirmed friends will be converted to people who like your new Page.
