A common problem when trying to setup your ‘place of employment’ on your Facebook profile is that the specific page you wan’t isn’t in the drop-down list.

It asks you to ‘start typing’ and then select the page, but for some unknown reason the page you want doesn’t show in the list.

Here’s how to add your own page:

Step 1
First copy your own business Facebook Page ID number – Facebook Page > About > Page Info > and scroll down the bottom of the page. Select ‘copy’.

Step 2
Go to your personal Facebook Profile
About > Work and Education > Add a Workplace >
Select ‘Add a workplace’ (or ‘Edit’ if you already have one selected)
select ‘ONLY ME’, then click save.

Step 3
Click EDIT and make sure your cursor is in the ‘Company’ text box

Step 4
Right click and select “Inspect Element” and you’ll see a screen showing lines of code.

Find the line of code that says “name=”employer_id” value=”123456789″ (this number changes depending on the FB Page you selected).

‘Paste’ the Page ID number from your own Facebook Page (inside the double quotes) and click SAVE CHANGES.

You should now have a link directly to your own Facebook Page on your ‘Work and Education’.

Change the privacy setting from ‘Only Me’ to ‘Friends’ or ‘Public’ and you’re done
