Breaking news in Facebook is the new ability to convert your profile to a page. Sounds great.
- you’ll lose every post, image, video you had on your profile.
- the only thing that will convert is your profile image and the friends you had will become LIKES
- your new page will not be the normal variety of page but what is termed a “business page”
Oh yeah and then there is this…
Business accounts are designed for people who only want to use Facebook to administer Pages and run ad campaigns. For this reason, business accounts do not have the same features as personal accounts. Business accounts have limited access to information on Facebook-when using a business account, you can view all the Pages and Social Ads you own, but you will not be able to view profiles or content owned by other people. Business accounts cannot be found in a search, and the owner of the account will not be able to send or receive friend requests.
UPDATE: Make a mistake and now want to go back? There’s a form for that! https://www.facebook.com/help/contact_us.php?id=189265951117017

He's an avid hockey fan, rides a mountain bike, sometimes rides a road bike, has a few motorcycles (he had a really fast one, bought a cool orange one, rode a really slow one, and wants a really small one). If that isn't enough, he makes cheese and sourdough bread, loves strong beer and good red wine, and poorly plays the Mandolin.
