Couple of questions.

 

 

 

I want to set up a FB page for my new businesses but not have it linked to me.

 

The businesses has a different email addresses.

 

I have done a Google on it and found this

 

http://www.adweek.com/socialtimes/facebook-business-account/309210

 

 

 

But it does not seem to work ?

 

 

 

The other question is is there a way i can run 2 FB accounts on my device (Android) that is my personal and businesses account ?

 

Thanks

 

 

 

Bernard

Facebook is supposed to be one account per person, and the page managed by a person.

 

For that reason they do not make their app deal with multiple users.

Thank you for that Richard.

 

I totally realize that (I think you are stating the obvious here)

 

So my question is there a work around for this ? or would I be the only person in the world to have more than one email account and more than one facebook account ?

You are asking how to violate their terms basically.

 

If you are going to do this, at least make the DOB and other stuff on the fake account totally different to your own so that they do not match the accounts and suspend them both.

Seriously, are you the FB police !

 

I simply want a solution to how to open two FB accounts on one device.

 

One is a businesses account and the other is a personal account.

 

Your solution above does not help at all as even if I was to use a fake DOB, and why would I do that ? 

 

The question is still the same 

 

How do I open two FB accounts on one device (I could be doing this for any number of reasons eg my wife account and my account one one device or I am giving my business partner access to my account as well etc etc) 

 

I have no problem if you do not know the solution.

At least on android, you cant. You can only add a single facebook account to the phone, and that is how all accounts on the phone authenticate.

 

The best you will be able to do is install an alternate browser like firefox with its own cookie store and use that for one of the accounts.

 

Reason for the alternate DOB and other details is that the first time someone complains about one of your accounts, they will suspend all of them and make you choose which one gets unsuspended.

 I'm with rich on this one, FB have intentionally gone out of their way to make it difficult to do such a thing.

 


As far as FB as a company is concerned a FB account is a person and the only FB account that person is supposed to have and a FB page is a business/group/etc, this is why multiple people can control a FB page via setting user types like admin/moderator/etc and it does not tie back visibly to the owner.

 

 

 

The idea with pages is you give someone a specific level of access dependant on what you want them to do and they get access only over the page not over your account without it tying back to the owner in any way.

Thanks for the input I appreciate it.

 

So how do large companies have a company FB page, are they still linked to a person ?

 

Companies such as Microsoft surely can not work on that same principle or do they pay for that service ?

You can use the multiple users function to switch to a new user on android, and from there have different accounts set up, inclduing gmail/facebook etc.

 

However you will miss any notifications for the 'user' you are not currently logged in as.

You add other people as admins to your page. You can go as far as limiting access to a degree for the other users. That way you can see which staff member posted dumb crap to the page - doesn't show to non admins.

Use the Facebook app for your personal stuff and use the Facebook Pages app for the business page.
