Getting You Online, Found and Connected

Switch between Facebook Personal Profile and Facebook Page

Facebook also allows businesses to sign up, however a business will create a Facebook Page, not a personal profile. This process walks through how to switch between a personal profile and a business page, if you have one or more linked to your account.
