Your profile shows off personalized recommendations and reviews that help potential clients trust you and feel comfortable doing business with you.  But what if you want to share more information about your business?

Starting today, you can display updates from your Facebook fan page on your profile.  If you’re already working hard to create useful content for people on Facebook, it’s a no-brainer to display your posts publicly on your profile as well.

Here’s how:

Visit your profile and click on the “Recent Activity” tab. (Don’t worry — this tab won’t appear to others unless you have already connected your Facebookfan page.) Then, click on the link to “Display your Facebook content here” and choose the fan page you’d like to display. It’s as simple as that!


A few quick notes:

  • If you receive a message that your fan page cannot be displayed, the problem is that page is not accessible to people who are not logged in to Facebook. To change that, go to your fan page in Facebook and click the “Edit Page” button. At the very top of the “Manage Permissions” tab on the edit menu you will see page visibility options. Make sure that your page is visible to people in all countries and people of all ages. If you have either “Country Restrictions” or “Age Restrictions” set then visitors to your profile will not be able to view your fan page.

  3. Can I just add my business page without adding my personal page? I want to promote my business, not myself.

    I have the same question as Phillipe: can I just add my business page and not my personal page?
    Thank you.

  5. Good point from Philippe. I agree – why would we want to promote ourselves, and not our businesses?
