How to Sign up a Business on Facebook

By Vanessa Padgalskas

Facebook is a social networking website that allows people and businesses to connect with each other. A personal profile on Facebook is made for individuals, but a Facebook business account is made for businesses that want to promote their product. Unlike personal accounts, business accounts cannot send or receive friend requests or be located in a general search.
