Having a Facebook fan page you’d think all you have to do is type the name of it in your employer section, on your profile in Facebook, and your fan page would come right up. This isn’t the case, ever since Facebook updated, there seems to be default community pages, which is technically breaching many business owners copyrights. I’m surprised this hasn’t been brought up in the news with all the law suits being filed against Facebook these days.
There is a way around this issue though, and only takes a few simple, safe, downloads. First, and foremost, you will need Firefox, if you don’t already have the browser Firefox you can get it by going to: Here
After you have Firefox, you will need the add-on called Web Developer. It’s free, and for what we will be using it for, it will be easy. You will have to restart your Firefox after you install the add-on. This is normal for any add-on you may install.
Next step is you will need to go to your fan page, and get the numbers at the end of your URL. If you have a vanity name, it will be a bit more difficult to get. You should be able to get your number when you click on “edit your” on your fan page.
After you get a copy of the series of numbers, head over to your Facebook profile page, and click on the “Info” tab. Click the “edit” by your “Work and Education”. Once that page loads, go to the new toolbar you installed at the top which is the Web Developer add-on. Look for the word “Forms” there is a little down arrow there. Click that, and select “Display form Details.” Now, don’t panic you are about to see a bunch of stuff that doesn’t make any sense what so ever. The only thing we need to pay attention to is the grey box that already has info in it, a series of numbers. Click in that box, holding your mouse button down, and press control V (Ctrl button on your keyboard.) This may take a few times of you doing it in order for it to actually take. If you get it right, you should see the thumbnail of your business popup. Click save changes, then go back up to the Web Developer and tick the “Display form Details” again to disable it.
If you already have your employer set, you will not lose your information like you would should you change it without using the Web Developer tool. I’ve tested it several times, as I was worried I have to enter everything all over again.
Because you may have no further use for the Web Developer application, you can remove it by going to “tools” “add-ons” and selecting “disable” or “uninstall” button under the “Extensions” tab, once again restart.
