Business FB Page
Is it a requirement to have a personal FB page to create a business page?
1) I/we the company, do not wish to allocate an employee the ability to have potentially have sole control of such a advertising page
2) Myself being the MD, have no interest in communicating at a personal level using social media, hence my question.
Yes, you would need a personal profile in order to admin your page. You can set up a personal “business” profile, however, and not actually use that account for anything else- IE; your personal page is not required to be an active page, it just needs to exist in order to start a business page.
You can create a business manager Facebook account that then manages your business Facebook page, allowing you to bypass the personal login and keeping your personal information private from company employees. Here’s a link to the information: https://business.facebook.com.
While you do need a personal account to create a business manager account, going this direction allows some separation between your personal and professional Facebook profiles.
Thanks for reaching out. Like Nicole replied, you do need to have a personal account in order to create a Facebook Business Page. Granted, you don’t need to be active on your personal page or create any sort of presence on there (i.e., you could use a nickname to avoid using your real name, don’t upload any pictures, etc…).
Again, thanks for your question and hope this helps!
You can designate other people to be admins and still retain ultimate control, so you won’t need to give them access to your personal page.
