I have several people on my facebook, and most use a fanpage or business page. They write blogs, or articles, and have it show up on their business pages, with no linking back to their personal page.
I have tried to do this, but the only way I get to make it happen, is by doing it to my personal page, and sharing it from the business one.
Anyone know how I can do it strictly from the business page?
Also, 2 different accounts have more than 1 fan page btw.
I think thats pretty hard to split up your personal and your business site as the business proberbly doesn't have anything interesting to offer

I see business pages that have links to blog articles that they create, website links, etc. None of it is a "share" thing..where they post it on their personal page, and share it from their business page. It is all posted from the business page.
Plus, I see business pages where some have the "like" button, and others have the "add friend" button.
Trying to figure out how they do it.
Did you use: http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php ?
If so, you should be able to post status updates from within the business page itself along with other things ... and operate it as an independent "profile" even when logged in to your main account
Here's a quick guide from Forbes: http://www.forbes.com/2010/08/17/int...-facebook.html

I am just not sure how they are doing it. They are not the only ones that I see doing it either. I see other "business fan" pages do it all the time.
I have looked into settings, etc and can't find any solution.
I have a blog, forum, etc that I would like to post certain things to my fan pages, but without posting them to my personal page and then "sharing" them to my business profile.
I have tried that, and I always get errors that the automated system has refused my name changes.
your fan page url should be different from your personal page's url...try putting in your fan page url and see if that works
When you are linking things to your facebook account, it asks for your email and password to your facebook page. Which is real easy, but it is for the personal page and never for the business "fan" page.
I am just baffled by it, as I ask people on Facebook periodically and no one ever replies.
I agree with the above posts..Facebook has done it.
On Facebook you should be able to login to your page, where you're able to share things with fans. Click on the small arrow to the right hand side, just next to the home button. Once you click on that you should see "Use Facebook as:" and you'd then click on your page.
Thanks for sharing a useful informaton.
Ahhh I think I know what you mean now. This isn't really possible since when you use apps it will always use your account name, not page name. I have seen some businesses that appear to be confusing accounts with pages and instead of asking their fans to like the page, they ask them to add as a friend. This is the wrong way to do it and what they're doing is creating a new account in the name of their business. In fact I think this is against Facebook's rules as you can report accounts that aren't real people (eg businesses that should be using pages).
