    I have some stupid questions in regards to FB. I personally don't like FB, but I want to set up a business account for our store front/online business.

    Pretty much how do you do correctly?

    I set it up but it sets up as individual, then I have to set up a page. Is that correct?

    Also how do you change the page URL to be facebook.com/businessname

    It tells me to mobile confirmation but I didn't get any confirmation. I tried it on my phone and colleagues many many times.

    So do you recommend setting up a business account through a page or an individual account?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Not sure what you mean, but from what I understand you want to know if it's better to set up an individual account for your business or a page?

    After your page gets a certain number of likes you can use a custom url. How many likes do you predict your page will get?

    Not sure why your not getting your mobile confirmed, you should email facebook with the problem.

    It depends, if you are sure you will have less than 5,000 likes in your stores lifetime, I'd go with a group, as you have the ability to message up to 5,000 people at once. Make a page/group on your account for your business, no need for a business account, unless you want to ask members to send you a message specifically regarding problems
