That’s where the quest of converting your personal Facebook profile to something that looks like a page by activating the follow button comes in, enabling new clients to follow you.

This upgrade is very much necessary for businesses, brands or famous persons who don’t want to go through the stress of getting a page for themselves.

Some of the benefits of adopting the follow button for your brand or business is that:

  • People who follow you can see your updates on their news feed.
  • Unlimited amount of followers bypassing the usual Facebook 5000+ friend limit.
  • All your friends automatically become followers on conversion.
  • Followers can share your posts and attract other followers
  • Unfriending someone doesn’t remove them from your followers’ list except you block them
  • People who send you a friend request automatically become followers unless you block them.
  • You’ll gain more exposure in the news feed due to the Facebook news feed algorithm and lots more…
