Setting up a Facebook Page



Please read the two previous articles before reading this: “Digital Legacy - Guaranteeing access to your chapter/state digital accounts” and “Facebook: Establishing a chapter/state organization account.” They give valuable information needed for understanding this blog entry.

After reading the previous blog entries, you are now ready to establish a Page for your chapter/state. A Page is what your members will access and where you will post all of your announcements, photos, and updates.

After logging into the Facebook account you just created, go to this address: https://www.facebook.com/pages/create/  





Click on the box “Company, Organization or Institution.”
Then you will see this:

Fill in the name of your chapter/state (make sure this is correct because it is hard to change it later). Examples are Beta Delta Ohio, Epsilon State Louisiana, or Mu Chapter Colorado.

Click “Get Started.”  Following the prompts and complete your new Facebook Page.

Facebook will ask you to add a Page description, a link to your website,  and  a unique url for your Facebook Page, i.e. facebook.com/yourorganization

It will ask you to add a profile picture (the recommended size is 180 x 180 pixels), which should be your organization’s logo. NOTE: most, but not all put the DKG Rose here.



Finally, you can define a specific audience, or you can skip through this step.

Once you have the basics set up, you should then add a cover photo (851 x 315 pixels) which should be a branded image that demonstrates what your organization does. International has designed logo signatures for geographic state organizations and can be found HERE.


EXAMPLE: 




Engaging cover photos can be really effective in encouraging people to like your page. You’ll also need to add some information about your organization to the Info section.

You have your Page setup. Now what? Our next blog entry will give you some examples and ideas for postings and getting members to “Like” your page.
