How to Create A Facebook Page
Most of the Facebook users thinks it is very difficult to create a Page in Facebook but it is very easy! Here I am going to explain in this tutorial how to create Facebook Page.
You can use it for your business, friends and social works etc.
In my knowledge most of the companies using Facebook page for their business to advertise their products.
What is a Facebook Page?
A Facebook Page, sometimes referred to as a “Fan Page,” is a single page that you can create off of the Facebook.com domain for anything you want…a particular subject you like: a celebrity, a business profile, whatever your heart desires (as long as you have the legal rights to do so). Think of it as a one-page meeting place, with information, links, a message forum box, RSS and anything else you want. Best yet, anyone can create them. All you need is a Facebook account!
These days, it seems like everyone and everything important, famous or notable has one…from President Obama, to Coca Cola and Lady Gaga. The obvious question is “how do I get one for myself?” That’s what this resource is all about!
Facebook Pages are important for a few reasons. They’ve been showing up high in search engine positions. Also, you can get unlimited “fans” for your Facebook Page, unlike the limit of 5,000 friends that your regular Facebook Profile is capped at. They’re visible to search engines and visitors, too. So, unless you want to create a social networking site the hard way, a Facebook Page is almost like a specialized social networking mailing list that you can reach out to at any time!
How Do I Find Facebook Pages?!
Getting started by actually finding the section
At first, it can be confusing to remember how to find Facebook Pages. Facebook changes its appearance on a regular basis, and things tend to get re-named or move around.
The Facebook Page icon looks like a little orange flag. It should be a default icon on the left-hand side of your front page (see screenshot on right) after you’ve created and used a Facebook Page. If it isn’t…I’ll make it even easier on you: click here for the Facebook Page creation screen – but make sure you’re signed in to Facebook, first.
With the new design and layout in April 2011, Facebook Pages now has its own dedicated section, and is no longer lumped in with Facebook Groups and Ads.
The New “Pages” Dashboard
Your general overview of all of your pages
Facebook came to its senses in Spring 2011 and made this helpful Facebook Page dashboard. Since you’re a Page newbie, it will probably look pretty barren, but it will eventually fill up with the pages you create, as well as their Likes & Activities statistics.
Each page will also show the number of notifications (fan posts) that have been made since you’ve last visited them. Best yet, this is where you can create a new page (go ahead, click that button on the upper right!)

Categorizing and naming your new page
Once you’ve found a category that’s similar to whatever your Page will be about, you can then type out the “Name” for your page. If you don’t know what to pick, believe me, you’ll have a more clear picture once you administer the Page for awhile. Once again, you can always change the category in the future if you believe something better should have been used.
Be extremely careful in naming your page, as it is PERMANENT and will be seen within the actual URL of your Facebook Page (for all of you SEO professionals, you’ll immediately see the importance of this). Here’s a warning from me to you:
Once you choose your Facebook Page name, AND, if you have 100 or more fans for that Page, the name is set in stone and can never be edited…not even if you contact Facebook directly and beg/complain/demand them to do it!
