When you create a new Facebook Page for your business, Facebook defaults it as published! Yikes! You may want to unpublish your Page to the public, so you can continue to work on it privately until you have it just the way you want it before opening it back up to the public.

Just look for the Edit Page button on Facebook, and then follow these simple steps:

  1. Click the Edit Page button.

    This button is located at the top of your new Page on Facebook.

  2. Choose Manage Permissions from the drop-down menu.

  3. Select the top check box, Page Visibility, so that only Admins can see this Page.

    This option effectively unpublishes your new Page, hiding it from everyone except the Page Admins who can continue to perfect the Page for final publication.

  4. Click Save Changes.

    Your business Page is now visible only to you and any other Admins. After you’ve decked out your Page with a Cover image, detailed info, photos, and other fun things, you can publish the Page for all to see by coming back to this Page and clearing the Page Visibility check box.
