Facebook now allows you to transform personal pages into commercial pages

They inform insideFacebook that it is now possible to convert personal Facebook profiles into commercial profiles, something that we can do from www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?migrate (it is necessary to be identified on Facebook before clicking the link, remembering that Photos will be lost and friends will become fans, losing many functions). Remember to read the help service before migrating, to avoid surprises. They also offer a question and answer forum aimed at those who wonder whether or not they should migrate, although the most important thing is to understand the difference between these two types of account that, according to Facebook:

Business accounts are designed for people who just want to use Facebook to manage pages and their ad campaigns. For this reason, business accounts do not have the same functionality as person accounts. Business accounts have limited access to Facebook information. If you use a business account, you can see all the social pages and ads you have but you will not be able to see other people’s profiles or content. Business accounts do not appear in searches and the account owner will not be able to send or receive friend requests.

So if your profile corresponds to a local place or business, a company, organization or institution, a brand or product, an artist, music group or public figure or an entertainment profile, it is time to migrate to put Everything in its place.Update: Many people trying it have lost some photos during the migration (something that they already warn on Facebook, so remember to do backup first of all. Remember that not all the content of your profile will be transferred. Before starting the migration you have to save all the important content (here they explain how).Update 2: The migration page has been deactivated, now it points to the company page creation page. We assume that too many users are complaining about losing data during migration and have decided to stop before there are more complaints.
