Trying to promote a local group on facebook.

I can't believe I'm wasting my question on this: Is there any way to make a facebook page (NOT profile) public? I mean a page promoting a not for profit, not a person's profile page.

By public, I mean viewable to folk who are not logged into facebook, and searchable on google etc.

As far as I can tell, they automatically are. I run one for our church, and I just found it on Google even though I was logged out of Facebook.

I've got one, but it doesn't seem to be open to the public, Sallysings. How do I open it?

I'm getting a 'log in to see this page' message when I try to view it logged out.

Sings, yours is a group and mine's a page. Perhaps the answer is to turn it into a group If so, is that possible?

They're public (and searchable on google) by default, I think. The public will never be able to post in it without having a facebook profile, but will be able to view it.

If it's not viewable, you can try checking the permissions in Edit Page > Manage Permissions.

Sorted it - there was nowhere I could find the public link, but comparing your link to my link enabled me to get my link's public version. Thanks!

FYI - If you have more than 25 fans, go to facebook.com/username and you can create a custom url (i.e. facebook.com/BTGOGspage) which makes it a lot easier to promote, link to, etc.

Make sure your age requirements are set to 'Anyone 13+' and not something like '17 and older.'
