I recently made some changes to my Facebook Page and I deleted my Facebook profile.

I Deleted My Facebook Profile by Dana Pittman

I am a fan of Facebook. I like the interaction in the groups. I have found family members, friends from high school and connected with clients.

However, my personal profile became a mess. I had family, friends, clients, and others all lump together. It made it difficult to interact with people. It also made it not so fun.


Well, if my family had a great day out and about I’d love to snap a picture and post on Facebook. I have family members who love to see pictures of my kids growing up. Facebook saves time since I post once and everyone can view the picture.

However, my profile also included clients and patrons from events. And with pre-teens, I did not want to post their pictures for obvious reasons like their privacy and safety.

So, after interacting with others on Facebook I decided to change my personal profile to a new Fan Page.

You Deleted Your Profile?

To make the change it deleted my profile including pictures, posts, nearly everything except my friends. They all moved to my Fan Page.

I’m sure some people will fall off and others will join. I also really hate I don’t have my old posts and pictures. However, I believe it’s best to have my Fan Page to interact with everyone and leave my future personal profile to family and close friends only.


Question: How do you determine what content to share on social media locations like Facebook and Twitter?

I am a fan of Blog Hops. I decided to jump in today. Please take a moment to visit a new blog.

      You’re welcome. I feel like I’m starting over but it’s for a good reason. I also believe it’s a great time to make the change. Let me know if you have questions.

    I answered over on Facebook, but I’ll repeat it here. My solution is simple. I don’t get on Facebook often enough to post anything of real consequence. Haha! Of course, I don’t have a lot of time to spend there, so that prevents me from doing it, too. 😉

      Easy breezy for you. 🙂 I started it all for business reasons. I would share photos from events. I also get many leads from interactions. Thus, it means I check on a regular basis. But I’m trying to pop on and pop off. We’ll see… LOL!

    I have a personal FB account and a “fan page” for my blog, and I keep the two separate. It’s worked great for me!

      Awesome. The separation part is what caused me problems. 🙂 But no longer. Take care!

        I couldn’t figure out how to keep my personal page and add another one. The categories didn’t seem to fit. I had “liked” you, Dana on my old page. I’ll re”like” with my new one as soon as I figure out my brand. 🙂

          Technically you can’t. It’s against the rule. That’s why Fan Pages are great. Message me if you have questions. And thanks for the “Like”.

    First, let me say, that I absolutely love your brand! As for FB, I love it, too. Too much! I was wasting time playing games, until the Challenge. Deactivating my account had been on my mind for sometime (I’m sure it was the Lord). This week I did. I warned my closest friends. My plan is to set a new one up geared to my writing. I don’t want to mix the two, and I certainly don’t want to get back into old habits. They die hard, you know. 🙂

      Thank you!!! I’m assuming by “Challenge” you mean Great Writers with Jeff. I understand. I was jolted with “Platform’ by Michael Hyatt to get my platform in order. I then read “You Are a Writer” by Jeff Goins. Needless to say, I’ve been working like a mad lady every since.

      Thanks for visiting…come again. 🙂
