Transcript:How to Create a Fan Page on Facebook

Hi, I'm Chris Davis for About.com. Here are the steps you will need to set up a fan page on Facebook.

Create Initial Fan Page

After logging into your account. Locate the Create a Page button. It will be at the left hand side of the of the page, about half way down. Click it. You will have six options to work with. However, each one has additional details within it. Choose the category that best fits the fan page you are creating.

Next, choose a category from the pull down menu. Type in the name. Check off the Agree with Facebook terms button and press Get Started.

Add Info to Facebook Fan Page

You will be asked to select a profile picture. You can choose either from your computer or a website. Select your photo. Now press Next. Now, include some basic information about your fan page, then click Save Info. Your fan page will open.

Customize Facebook Fan Page

You can continue to customize your page. You will see a Admin panel at the top.  Start by sharing some information that pertains to your page. Furthermore, if you want to get the word out that the fan page exists, invite your friends, email contacts or post it on your wall and have people like the page and keep up on posts that you create.

At this point, your fan page is similar to your profile page. You can add a cover photo, photo albums and videos, as well as events and posts to let people know what's going on.
