Building your fan page

Facebook provides you with a template for page creation. After you have clicked on the ‘Getting Started’ icon, fill in the relevant information into the template:

“Edit Info” takes you through to an information capture form where you can enter the information you want to share about yourself – we recommend including City, Birthday, Short Description, Awards, Gender, Personal Interests and Website where you can link to your National Association website.

After completing the information form, click “Save Changes” and return to the page to upload a photo of yourself.

Creating an easy to find URL is important, you can create a username, such as ‘Delfina Merino’, which then becomes your page’s URL, e.g. facebook.com/delfinamerino.

To do this, go into “Edit Info” and enter your desired username in the relevant box.

Once you’ve completed your page, use the “Build Your Audience” tools to promote yourself.
