  1. Thanks for the tips! I just made the changes you suggested. I don’t remember the last time I went through my Facebook data and updated it, but this was a good reminder to do so. Now my profile is linked with my fanpage, etc. Great video post!

    1. Awesome, Steve! So glad it directly helped you and you took such quick action to implement the change and make it happen. Really, that’s awesome! See you next month at Gold meeting?

    1. Ashar – that’s a great point. You want to be sure that what you put out is what you want people to receive! Great comment.

  2. Thank you Derek! I cannot not even count the times I have been to a profile of a fellow business owner without link to their fanpage. Will share and hope that more people add their pages to the About section!

    1. Katrin – thanks for getting the word out. I was so frustrated seeing people making this tiny mistake, which is why I had to get it out there on the video. Enjoy!

  3. I had been struggling with this and finally realized I had to delete my old employer because you’re right, it wasn’t tied to anything when I did it originally.

    I’m now happy, thank you! I’ll also be sharing this. 🙂

    1. Zara – you can only link it back to your fan page from that section on your profile. In the “About” section you can add your website to the Contact details part.

  4. Hi Derek ~
    Thank you for the video!
    Can you please tell me how you link a public figure page (as opposed to a business page) to the list of work?

    1. Hi Ava, it makes no difference what kind of page it is that you want to list there (whether it’s corporate fan page, business fan page, etc.) The only one that will show on the profile though is the one selected as most current.

  5. I did this quite some time ago and does bring more attention to your fan page BUT I just wish Facebook would have never scrapped the ability of emailing fans 🙄

    1. True, Caleb. I miss that feature also but the reason they did it was to avoid having their users “spammed” or “messaged” by fan pages they couldn’t control.

  6. It is definitely a challenge to keep up with all of the recent Facebook changes. The details can make all the difference. Thank you for update!

  7. Thanks Derek! I’m very thankful for the tip – I had to change my information. This is why I like online networking: everyone works together for community success.

  8. Derek:
    I have a business fan page, but I do not have a personal Facebook page. My struggle is that I am unable to like anyone’s page that likes my page. I never set up a personal page because I knew I would not pay as much attention to it as I would need to. How can I increase my business fan page, if I can not “like” those that support my business?

    1. Kim – not sure I understand. Everyone must have a personal profile to even login to FB. You can then create a “page” – whether it’s about you or your business is up to you.

  9. Honestly, I don’t have one. I have a business page and I log in with my business email address and make updates,post events, etc…people like the page. But I don’t have a personal page. Here is the link I used: I went through each step and it never asked me for a personal page to link to. I am really sorry if I am confusing you. But I created the business page based on a seminar I went to and this is the link they provided.

  10. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality
    writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

  11. This is fabulous Derek. I had updated my work info but didn’t know it could connect to an already established FB page. This was great to find this out. Thanks for the help.

  12. The characters are appealing, both as individuals and as
    a group, and I was quickly pulled into their story.

    As with all Pixar films, John Ratzenberger’s voice is featured, her as
    Gordon the guard. Sherry, because of a childhood accident,
    is blessed with a psychic abilityy that when she touches a dead
    person, she is able too see the last 18 seconds of what
    that person saw.

  13. Thanks for ones marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it, you will be
    a great author.I will be sure to bookmark your blog
    and will eventually come back from now on. I want to
    encourage you to ultimately continue your greawt writing, have
    a nikce holiday weekend!
