Our Technology, Your Future

We were asked recently to create a company page on Facebook for a client and then give them permission to update the page. Once they had permission they were not sure how to add a post to their page. This brief article does not show how to add them to a page. I'll address that in a later post. For now I'll let you know that I have made them Editors for the page in question. Once you have become an editor of your company page. Here is how to add a post.

Log into your personal account. If you read through the fine print on your Facebook account the assumption is one human, one account. I do not believe this has changed. You should not have more than one account and you should not share your account with anyone. That is why a company page is a separate concept. You create a company page from your personal account. You don't create a company account. See Facebook Terms section 4 for more information.

Once you are logged in, let first make sure that we are starting in the same place. On the top left of the page you will see the Facebook "F"

Click it to display your default timeline.

Once you are there, on the left side of your page you will see a section called "Pages"

Click on the page to which you would like to add a post.

At the top of the timeline you will see the box that is looking for your new post. 

 

Your will look a little different because it should have the profile picture of your company (if it is set), next to "Write something..." and a mini version of the same thing on the upper right side.

If these pictures are not of your company's profile picture you can verify or fix it by clicking the little down arrow next to the mini picture on the upper right.

The list that drops down are all the identities that you can post as (including your personal account). Choose (click on) your company account, The profile picture will change to your company account or remain the same if it was already chosen.

Now you are posting to Facebook as your company. 

Go ahead and write what you would like in the box that says "Write something..." and then click the publish button. Congratulations! you have now posted as your company.
