My FB personal acount changed to a FB page! How to share my contents?

6 replies
Hi guys...

Several months a go I created a FaceBook personal account to add my YouTube videos there and then share them with others and of course to share them with FB groups...
The videos were informative and product oriented videos related to cklickbank products...
After I tried sharing the videos with FB groups and individuals for several days, FB converted my personal account into a FB page. All my 300 friends were converted to likes! Now when I am going to share my YT videos with groups the video goes to the left side of the page in a section called "post page" or something like that, it never appears on the timeline of the groups so that the members could see it and click on it! Now as a FB page owner I even seem to not be able to contact the moderators of the FB groups and request them to post my videos at the timeline! So why I have those limitations with my FB page? What is the solution in order to get visits/shares/like from FB groups and members then?

Thanks

    Hey man, yes FB has been on a blitz for a little while now forcing personal profiles with 'fake names' to become a page. So I'm assuming your profile name sounded like a brand or biz name.

    Has happened to a few of my clients nightclub pages. IE Mishun Niagara as a first and last name is obviously a biz profile so they forced it to become a FB page. Luckily for us we also had a huge nurtured FB page already so just merged them.

    As for the posts, with a page you can not go to groups and make posts like a personal profile. groups are meant to be communities and hold discussions so business or brands have no place there.

    They are really sticky on what you can do on FB (all about the user experience), BUT when you really understand how FB works and their crazy reasons for doing things you can use that to your advantage and make great money and traffic from it.

    Word of advice, a lot of the old school mentality on how to use FB does not work anymore. The lazy marketing ways are getting crushed. Make a real plan of attack. Just posting videos all over the place does not give the user any value or experience and of course FB is going to try to make it very difficult for you to succeed.

    Create a campaign, think outside the box, spend a few dollars in ads building up some traffic and a story. It will do wonders.

      Thank you so much mate for your helpful reply,,,
      1: Yes I did bot use a real name -just used something like _Wise Teacher!-.
      First I thought maybe the reason They changed mt account to a page is that one of my videos in my FB personal account was promoting a program at its end (it has informative parts too)... After I tried to post that video in FB groups, FB changed my account top a page! I think a group owner or a member reported my video,,, I don't know! What is your idea? Can I create a personal account wit a real name and share that video once again in other groups without any problem

        Probably a FB bot that searches for profile names that don't sound real. They flag it and then force you to move the profile into a FB page.

        So like I mentioed, XYZ nightclub or DJ recordplayer or Injury Lawyer LA etc. making profiles like that, which are really used for business will get flagged and forced to a page anyways.

        Do it right, grab a page, build your fans and use laser targeted ads to fast track your offers. Never mind buying likes, you can hit major reach with dollars 😄

    You may want to create a new facebook personal page with your real name.
    Next, go to your fan page, like/comment/share each post you do there with yourself.

    As your personal page you may then share those posts from your fan page into groups

    Do be careful...If you join too many groups at once or post in groups excessively you will be placed in FB jail.
