    Facebook profiles are meant to represent a single individual. Organizations of any type are not permitted to maintain an account under the name of their organization. We have created Facebook Pages to allow organizations to have a presence on Facebook. These Pages are distinct presences, separate from user profiles, and optimized for an organization's needs to communicate, distribute information/content, engage their fans, and capture new audiences virally through their fan's recommendations to their friends. Facebook Pages are designed to be a media rich, valuable presence for any artist, business or brand.

    If you create a profile for your business, your account may be disabled for violating our Terms of Use. If you have questions about how to best leverage your Facebook Page, please check out our Insider's Guide or FAQ.

    You shouldn't need an individual account to create a fan page. After you signup up at http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php, just select 'I do not have a Facebook account', enter an email address, password, date of bith and you should be good to go.

    Some time ago there was a bug which prevented adding custom tabs (Static FBML) to pages that are not associated with personal profiles. Has this been fixed now? Otheriwse this option is not really practical.

    No problems here adding Static FBML to a fan page that's created and administered by a non personal account.
