How to Create a Facebook Page in Four Easy Steps

Everything you need to know on how to create a Facebook page in 4 easy steps. Create a Facebook Page for your Business, Organization, or Non Profit with these step-by-step instructions and free video.

Do You Have a Facebook Account?

Facebook has made it very easy to create a Facebook Page. Before we get started you first need to have a personal account set up. If you don’t have an account set up, here is a quick video that will walk you through setting up an account.

Now that you have a personal account, here are the instructions on creating your page.

Step 1- Go to Your Facebook Account/Profile (Your Personal Profile)

Once you log into Facebook look at the top RIGHT HANDS SIDE of the screen. You will see a symbol of a lock and on the right hand side of the lock you will see an arrow pointing down (the arrow is black until you click on it.) Click on the arrow.

When you click on the arrow pointing down (it turns white) and a pull down menu appears with a variety of options. You will see an option called “Create Page” click on Create Page.

** You will not see green boxes like you see on mine. I have several pages I manage and I made them green.
