Before converting the profile to the page you need to know few things that will happen after conversion. Once you convert your personal Facebook account to a Page, your current profile picture is transferred to the page and coverts your friends and followers as people who like your page. It means that all your friends and followers are converted as likes to your page.  Your Facebook profile username will become the username for your page, and the name on your personal account will become your page’s name. If you want your page to have a different name then try to change your Facebook profile or create a new page on the name you required.
Other than this no other information or things you have shared will be move over to your new page. So, be sure to save all your information in your account before converting into the page. To save your information you should to these things as follows.
Before proceeding to the conversion of your Facebook account to the page, you have to complete these two major tasks. They are:

  • Downloading all the info of your current Facebook account
