If you are one of the countless people who set up a Facebook Profile for your business instead of a Facebook Page you’ve no doubt eventually regretted that decision but don’t want to loose all the “friends” you’ve amassed. Now you don’t have to loose those invaluable connections! Facebook has released a tool that will allow you to “convert” your profile to a page.
This is an excellent tool for those public figures, small business owners, freelancers, etc. who need to convert to the much more “business” friendly page (no “approving” friends, no “limits” on the number of people who can connect with your page, etc.) but don’t want to loose all the connections they’ve made.
Be aware, there ARE limitations to what this tool will do, so you’ll need to download all your profile information BEFORE converting, but all your “friends” will be converted over to people who “like” your page without them having to do anything.
