However, their Terms of Service (TOS) in regard to business use has been primarily stable. Their interpretation of morality may change, but the wording has remained the same.
Now, FB is heavily policing the public pages of businesses, not just authors. The use of selling on personal pages has always been against their policy, but many have ignored or been ignorant of this rule, until now. In recent days, and in lieu of the many scrutinies into their business practices, FB is cracking the whip to bring business into line with their TOS.
Your Main Profile should be your Personal profile. This is where you will talk about your public opinions, connect with family and friends. Then your Pages underneath your Profile, is where your Author pages and other businesses should go. You can use the Business, Services, or Shopping templates under Page Settings to choose which one works best for your customers. This is so they can monetize you, yes, but your ads also won't get suppressed as much as they once were because you are using the correct page. You can still share business links from your personal page from others, just not from your own business. Others will share your business links on their personal pages.
If you create a Brand New FB Account, then when you pick the original setting for the account, it should be set to Business, not Personal. You can have a completely Private and Personal account set to a different email, but your name must be different from your Business Account.
As many people are going through this change you can pick the right course for you, although starting all over again with a new profile will take time to rebuild your influence. You would also have to change all your links on whatever other media you use, such as your website, promotional flyers, etc.
My advice is to just change the setting to a Business or Shopping template from your existing page.
Good luck with this newest crackdown!
