Facebook Friday - default employer

Make it easy for viewers of your personal page get to your fan page!

If you haven't put your business info into your profile, you really need to!  Especially if you're a business owner.  It will be an easy way for you and others to link with one click. 

All you need to do is go to Edit Profile (top right.)  There are a number of categories including Basic Information, Profile Picture and Education and Work.  Click Education and Work, and put your Employer (your business) into that box, add anything else you want to say, and click View My Profile

Right under your name, first thing, will be your business - nice and easy to get to. 


When I first started my Facebook page, I added some things into my profile, including my “employer” : Storybeader.  Recently I added another employer to my profile and it took Storybeader's name off my personal page altogether.  That really bothered me!  Just yesterday I decided to try and changed that, so I deleted Storybeader as my second employer, and re-entered it. 

Now Storybeader is above my other employer (in the "first" position.)  By default, it appears under my name on my personal page, like it used to.  Hurray!  That's all you have to do if you have two employers and want one (over the other - pun intended!) to be visible.

Thanks Deb! Mine always said "Worked at LazyTcrochet" but I just realized that I had to check the box that says I'm still working there.

Great idea! I'll be heading off to check what I have on my profile!

Thank you for the tip, Deb. I not sure if FB is working for me. But then social media takes so much time!!

Somehow I did this right! Mine says "Owner at Magnolia Surprise" and links to my page. I've seen others that link to a community page that just has a briefcase drawing as the avatar.

This reminder is great for those of us who sometime ignore our facebook pages! Thanks.

This is great! How do I get it to say "Owner" instead of "worked at" and how do I get it to link to the fan page?

Tyler said...

Nevermind, figured it out! :)

FABULOUS tip, and I don't know why I never thought of this... DUH!

TiLT said...

Awesome! I had it as "worked at" and never even realized it...now I changed it to Sole Proprietor :) Although, maybe Owner (like yours) sounds better? Hmmm...

Great info! And how it's front and center on your profile page!

O.k. Deb, I did it too. It looks a little funny. I'm not sure how to navigate around on Facebook.
