Accessing Where Facebook Create a Page

To create Facebook Fan pages, you have to access the location within Facebook to do that.

There are a couple of different ways to access the Facebook page development site:

  • Visit an existing Facebook Fan page (like the About Home Organisation Facebook Fan page at http://facebook.com/About.HomeBusiness), then scroll down near the bottom of the left column and you'll find a link Develop a page for my service. How far down you'll need to navigate to discover the link will depend upon the extent of personalization already used to the page by the Fan page's owner. You can click that connect to start. (See Image 1).
  • You can likewise access the setup area for Facebook Fan pages by picking Aid Center under Account (see Image 2) and then click Pages for Business under Facebook Applications and Functions or Advertisements and Service Solutions on that page (see Image 3). Then, click Developing and administering your page next, then How can I generate a page? You'll then see where you can start producing the page.
  • Once you have accessed the area where you can begin establishing your page, you'll notice that it's split. On the left side, you'll see Official Page (See Click to see Image 4). This is the area that's utilized for developing Facebook Fan pages. The best side is used only for Community pages and creating Facebook Groups. See Choosing a Facebook Page Type for Organisation to learn more on those kinds of pages.

Luckily, after you've developed one Facebook Fan page, extra Facebook Fan pages will be a lot easier to produce as you'll have an Advertisements and Pages link under your profile photo in the left column of your very own wall.

The process sounds more complex than it is, but Facebook makes it more complicated than it has to be.

Customized URLs for Facebook Fan Pages.

You have most likely already seen that the three sample Facebook Fan pages all seem to have customized URLs. They do. However, you can not specify a custom URL for Facebook Fan pages till your pages have 25 fans (individuals who have clicked the "Like" button on the top of your fan page).

Don't stress, however. When you get those 25 followers (fans), you can change the URL to something that's quickly recognizable and remembered. Your old default URL that Facebook produced for your fan page will automatically be redirected to your custom URL, so all your links will continue to work.
