p.1 #1 · What kind of Facebook page????


I want to set up a facebook page for my photography. What option for the type of page did you choose? I don't see photography anywhere in any of the category's. Not looking to do a "brick & mortar" physical type business page. So can you guys give me some advice?

Also a tip for good quality photo uploads to FB. Since FB re-compresses what we upload, you don't want to upload a jpg. Save your low res final draft (from raw or tif or whatever) as an uncompressed png and upload that. When FB re-compresses the png to jpg, no icky pixelation or compression artifacts!

Thanks Mike.

I know quite a few here are against FB. Or, at least publishing to it. After having one of my own photos stolen and taken credit for, I can't say that I blame them.

But I digress.

I'd rather not choose business because, well, I simply am not in this to make money at this point. Did FB require an address? I've read mixed things.

Artist.

Some of the things I'll talk about or do will involve making money, some will not. But it will all be about my art.

I believe an address is required for FB to classify it as a local business. I used my PO box. A viable choice might be artist as suggested.

I post low res images only to FB and lately have just been linking to my zenfolio galleries.

You can create a "Cause or Community Page" or a "Company, Organization or Institution" page if you do not have a physical address. The few people I know personally who have photography pages use the "Community Page". I'm not sure about the nuanced differences between the two. Someone who has one may be able to clarify.

I can't imagine not having a fb page. 80%+ of my business come through fb. I don't load entire galleries of photos to my page, just one or two of the best keepers from each subject. They are watermarked and I encourage sharing. It's a no-brainer.
