I admit it’s annoying to have multiple profiles, but with Facebook’s profile switcher, it’s pretty easy to manage your personal and business profiles without logging in and out all the time. Add a few real personal details and photos first. Here’s where you might add things like your university degree and other signs that you’re a real and trustable person.
