Adding Your Facebook Business Page As Your Place Of Employment
One thing I’ve noticed that several of my self-employed Facebook friends don’t take advantage of the full benefit of their Facebook profile. If you have your own business page on Facebook and you are self-employed it can be connected to your profile. How?
In the new Timeline view or old profile view you want to go to your info page to update your employment information. Edit your Work and Education information and enter your business page under “Where have you worked?” box.
Please note: Facebook has changed how your Profile information is displayed to others. Those visiting your profile have to click on “About” first before they can see the “About You” information and your place of employment. However the instructions below still work to add your self-owned businesses fan page as your place of employment.
When you start typing a list of business pages you follow will start to populate. Keep typing until your business page shows so you can select it.
Add information about your business including your position, city/town a description of your business and the time you have been in business or self-employed. Then the “Save Changes” and “Done Editing” buttons when you are finished.
Down below that you can “Add A Project” to let others know what you’ve been up to. I listed my book and then added the 2nd Edition when that was launched back in September. Now when someone visits your personal profile and they hover over your employment information they can “Like” your business page right from your personal profile. How cool is that?
