What is Facebook Business Manager?
The Facebook Business tool allows you to organize and manage your business settings on social media. To use it, there are a few rules:
Be aware that your personal business account profile, which should already be created, will be blocked from the general public view unless you accept friend requests.

You must then have a Facebook Business profile to create an account as a Business Manager.
To securely log into Business Manager preferably use the login of your Facebook Business account. It is also worth remembering that to confirm your identity, you must have a personal Facebook account. Finally, be aware that you, as a Facebook user to request access, and, can only create two Business Manager accounts.
