There are good marketing reasons to have a Facebook profile with the Follow button activated. If you already have lots of Facebook friends who are more like potential customers or clients, and you haven’t taken the time to create a business page (and probably won’t), this approach is for you!
Here’s how to turn on the Follow button on your personal profile:
Open Facebook on your mobile and tap on the ‘menu’ and open ‘Settings & Privacy.‘
Open ‘Settings’ and scroll down to open privacy settings
Go to the option ‘Who can send you friend requests?’ and change it to ‘Friends of Friends’ from ‘Everyone.’
Go back to settings and open ‘Public Posts’ and in the option ‘Who can follow me’ change your selection from ‘Friends’ to ‘Public.’
To confirm, go your Facebook profile page, hit the ‘View As’ button and then click the ‘Public’ link to see what updates in your profile are public.
If you have any problem with changing the (Add Friends) button to (Follow) button. This is a video giving you more information and understanding.
