Creating a Facebook Account
If you don’t already have a Facebook account, it’s time to create one. Simply go to http://www.facebook.com and click on “sign up,” and then put in your information. You’ll be sent a confirmation email
when your Facebook account is created. Once you’ve created the account, you can create a page that you’ll use for your business. You will be the administrator of the page, so you’ll control the content that goes on it, and the types of applications you will use.
You’ll want to start with friends that you already know, and Facebook can find those by utilizing your email address if you choose. If you’d rather not do it that way, you can search for friends using the search bar with the magnifying glass at the top of your Facebook page. Facebook doesn’t store your email password, so it’s safe to allow Facebook to connect to your email and obtain your friends’ information.
Filling in Your Facebook Information
When you create your page or account, take a few minutes to fill out the informational sections such as the “about me” area, personal interests, schooling and more. This will allow individuals to get to know you better or will help you become identifiable to others who may be looking for you. You can also list your favorite movies, books, interests and more. This will help others get a clear picture of what kind of person you are. Don’t forget to add your website URL too!
