Do you have a youtube channel? Have you ever wondered how to add youtube to your facebook business page?

New Facebook Business Page Design to Share for the Napkin Wizard

I have a new Facebook business page design to share on this “Facebook Friday”.  It’s one I recently created for the Napkin Wizard (@NapkinWizard) Jimmy Ng.  
I love how creative Jimmy is! He has created more than 200 napkin folding designs, and wanted to start a website and blog to share the designs with others who share his love for entertaining.  Jimmy has seen first-hand the ice-breaker / conversation-starter that a beautifully set table with a one-of-a-kind napkin fold can be. After we created his website and blog, Jimmy was ready to enter the Twitterverse and Facebook community.  I was able to use many of the same design elements, but with a new spin, over on Facebook.  You’ll notice his website background became the background for his Facebook welcome screen.  
If you’re looking for creative ways to “wow” your party guests, be sure to “like” Jimmy’s Facebook page.  He’s new to Twitter, too, and is lovin’ it!

Did you create a facebook profile instead of a biz page? Do you know the difference? One way to know if you have a profile or a page is that people "friend" a profile (because it's supposed to be a person) and people "like" a business page. FB pages can't request friendships, which is why some businesses felt that operating as a profile (person) was more desirable than creating a business page. For many reasons, it's best (hands-down) to create a Facebook business page, not a profile, if you are a business.  In Facebook's own words: "Pages offer more robust features for organizations, businesses, brands, and public figures, which …
