    Keeping Facebook page from friends


    I realise this title may sound odd, after all, we want our Facebook pages seen by lots of people right?

    So basically I have had my personal fb page for years and also a couple of business pages. Now I need a new fb business page but the topic is something I don't want my friends to see yet.

    So the question is, if I setup a new page will fb somehow link it with me so it is shown to my friends on fb?

    I'd rather keep it quiet for a bit but still get other people to like/follow it.

    If you don't share... It won't share.

    Thanks fathom, I wasn't sure if fb might recommend it to my friends based on me being the admin for the page.

    If you do like your own page, there may be a possibility that it comes up in recent activity. It would also show up in your liked pages. There is a way of setting up purely the page though so your account isn't related at all if that works?

    Thanks Thomas, do you know how to set it up so it isn't related? I thought you had to have a personal account to setup a page?

    After doing a bit of research into this, seems I was wrong. Seems that this feature was phased out or never existed. I know we had a business login 2-3 years ago, but thinking about it there's a possibility it could have just been a standard account. However it's still relatively simple to create a new account and assign your current account an admin, I don't believe there will be any way of tying you to this page then.

    Thanks, I have set one up and will see if it appears anywhere. I haven't 'liked' it so maybe it will be ok. Fingers crossed!

    Do let us know if it worked for you or not. Also if you don't mind me asking, why is it that you don't want your friends to see it yet?

    I'm practicing something that is a little 'out there' and until I am really good at it I don't want it known ;)
