I was recently updating my Facebook account and I added AVATAR as my current employer in my profile. But when I clicked on the link to AVATAR it went to a generic community page with little content and no administrator. This was unsettling considering I had just taken the time to set up an official business page for the company. Apparently Facebook makes no attempt to check if an official page exists before they link to their generic community pages. Even worse, this seems to be a common frustration among employees and business owners alike who would like to link their profile to their company’s official page.
Luckily, we have a solution for you. It is a bit more complex than a couple of clicks in your settings but it is not very technical. Essentially, you’ll be hacking the page to force the link. To get started, you’ll need to use Firefox by Mozilla (if you’re an IE user you’ll need to download Firefox). Whether you’re a lifelong Firefox user or you’ve freshly installed it, you need to download an additional tool to actually make the changes you’ll need. You’ll be making the changes using the Web Developer Toolbar that you can download as an add-on to Firefox.
