How to create a Facebook Fan Page for your Blog

What is a Facebook Page?

Sometimes referred to as a "Fan Page", a Facebook page is a single page where you can share & talk about any particular subject you want: a celebrity, a blog or whatever your heart desires. Think of it as a one-page meeting place, with information, links, a message forum box, RSS and anything else you want.

Search for "Website" in the drop down list and provide the Page name (e.g., name of your blog) in the next box. Check the "I agree to Facebook Pages Terms" box, then click on the "Get Started" button.


Step 2. You will be transferred to the next page - here you can "Upload an Image" for your Fan Page or Skip to upload it later. Browse for your image clicking on the "Upload from computer" link:


Step 3. Enter your site/blog description and the url address. These infos will appear on your Facebook page. After you have finished, click "Save info".


Step 4. Now you are transferred to your new Facebook Fan Page. To "Manage" your information, click on the "Manage" Button at top right corner of the page.

Get a Shorter Facebook Fan Page URL

Your Fan Page URL will look similar to this: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Helplogger/120574614736021

Now, if you have minimum 25 fans, you will be able to shorten your Facebook URL to look like this: http://www.facebook.com/helplogger

For this, go to http://www.facebook.com/username/ and click to set a username for your pages.


There you can select the username for your fan page. Be careful when you choose your Facebook Fan Page Username because you can't change it back afterwards.

  5. This was exactly what I was looking for! I have been blogging for over a year now, but I still consider myself a newbie as I have been on and off during that year or so. I am running two blogs - one started out as a hobby but I take it much more seriously now, and the other is still being tweaked. The blog that I began as a hobby is very important to me now, so thanks for the information that you have provided...I was not sure of how to go about this along the lines of which option to pick while creating the FB fanpage, but I know exactly what to do now. Thanks!

  8. Can people who aren't your friends view the fan page? And can they link back to your personal page? I want to create the blog anonymously from my personal account. Thanks.
