How do I convert my personal Facebook account to a Page?

When you convert your personal account to a Facebook Page, your your current profile picture will transfer and add of all your friends and followers as people who like your Page. Your account's username will become the username for your Page, and the name associated with your personal account will become your Page's name. If you want your Page to have a different name, consider creating a new Page.


No other content will be carried over to your new Page, so be sure to save any important information before converting your account. You can:

  • Download your info, such as all of your sent and received messages and all of the photos and videos you’ve uploaded to Facebook.
  • Appoint a new group admin to any groups you manage. You'll be unable to manage groups once the conversion begins.
