Great advice on this one...I'm confused myself as a blogger. I feel like too many options leads folks to do nothing.

Thanks. I feel like Facebook is in the process of jumping the shark. Time will tell but the full range of changes feels like it's made things way too complicated to enjoy.


I agree...this whole thing is really confusing. I feel like they are trying to make it easier by adding more options but someone forgot to tell them that age-old phrase "KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID!" haha

I'm gonna hold off on the subscription option for now like you suggest!


Be VERY careful with the option to migrate to subscribers and a personal profile page instead of a fan page and likes. Why? Because there appears to be no way back if you do it, and nobody really knows what the implications are just yet.

The choice is pretty simple: keep & maintain your Facebook page. That's because other websites like ReverbNation or Billboard Pro use your Page's 'Likes' to track statistics and are not currenty designed to track the # of subscribers to your personal profile.

Clyde Smith

Excellent points, y'all!

I think it's good for individuals who don't use Reverbnation or any of those other things that track from Facebook pages. I am a comedian and I had a FB page for people who didn't want to be friends, but now that they have the Subscribe feature I'm finding that more people are just subscribing to my profile than are liking my facebook page. It will be a lot easier for me to merge the two just into my one account, my profile.

And someone said you can't convert them back, but that's not true. Google is full of articles on "convert facebook profile to page", so it's apparently very easy to do.
