facebook fan page?

I was just wondering how I go about creating one? I can't really figure it out. I think I made a page but I'm not too sure if I even chose the right one. I figured it was about time I get one so that I can have some separation between my family snap shots and photos from a mini shoot or something even if it is of my own family. Kwim? My own FB profile is getting so full of pictures. Lol If anyone knows I'd appreciate it. Smile thanks!

Mine too, now that you mention it...most of my photos in the past 2+ months are "photography" type photos, rather than family photos :/ ! 2 friends of mine from the Junebuds (June 07) board do non-pro portrait photography and both have separate FB pages for it. I could ask them.

that would be great Smile so far the page I made looks good, except it doesn't post the photos I've recently uploaded.

Be sure to let us know how to find it so we can "fan" it!

I'm not sure if this will work or not .. let me know!

So far it looks ok.

I'm just wondering why the photos aren't posted to the wall automatically. Whenever I upload a picture it takes me back to my own Facebook home page. It's annoying but I'll live Blum 3 I just wanted a place to display my photos without mixing them with regular snaps on my own personal page. So its all good.

I fanned you! It looks good! If you are still having trouble with the photos thing I'll ask my friends who have those pages. So how did you get your pics to be on there then?

The page is public, right? That's a good way to get more noticed then I guess. I should maybe do that with my nature photographs....besides the fact they're taking up my whole FB album heheh

The page is great actually. Having a little trouble with the wall thing but I'm getting used to it now so it's ok. You upload pictures the same way actually. It's pretty cool. And yes it's public which is ok by me. Actually you have the option to block countries that you don't want viewing your pictures by giving the countries of your choice permission to view. Smile I think I'm going to create another page for my miniatures later on. I have tons of those pics in my own profile as well. It's nice to separate them a bit. Smile I love pictures so I go nuts uploading sometimes. lol

Cool! My other question (after testing it out by going as far as "create a page") is, what category did you use? Local business? I wish they had a type leaning toward hobby....

I just used community page option. I asked someone and they told me to choose that one. All you have to do is not allow anyone else to post pictures, etc. Just comments on the wall. Smile If I ever get my own photography business up I might switch but this works for now.

Totally, GiGi! lol thanks for the info Loida! I'll look for that community page option. I probably won't get any fans but it'll be fun to have a page. I love making photo sites lol

Just send out invitations to all of the people on your own friends list and you'll get fans pretty fast. Smile I've got 31 already since I started it yesterday. Those are just people from my friends list Blum 3

Thanks Tara, I started making my page a couple days ago...and I clicked the "like" button last night so it's on my profile wall....I could send you the invite if you want! But I've still got a ton to add to the albums! lol

I have so much from this year that I'm wondering if I should make a separate album for different types of photos for 2010....as opposed to keeping it in a "year" album like I have for 2009, 2008, 2006-2007....what do you think? keep it yearly, or split it up?

I would split it up. I know when I look at albums if there are too many pages I NEVER make it thru all of the pages.

Just found your page Amy and "liked" you! So excited to see more of everyone's photos!

That's true, thanks. It'll be similar to my Wix site then. Also that way anyone who doesn't want to see, for example, bees can skip that folder haha
