Did you know that the subcategory you choose appears prominently on your Facebook page?
It appears just below your page’s profile picture, letting people know right away what your business is all about.
But here’s the catch: Once you select a subcategory, you cannot remove it in an intuitive way. Or at least you can’t right now. (Hopefully it’s just a temporary Facebook bug.) This is problematic because the choices for subcategory are limited—meaning, what you select may not exactly capture what you offer. In that case, you probably want your category to show instead. If you’re dealing with this issue, there’s a workaround: 1. Go to your Facebook page, click “About” and then click “Edit.” Click the “Edit” button located on the right hand side of “Basic info.” 2. Click “Edit” to the right of “Category.” 3. Edit your subcategory and select a random choice. 4. Go back to your page. There should be a “View page” button on the top, right hand side. 5. On you profile page, click “Add A Category.” 6. Delete the subcategory you chose by clicking “x.” 7. Click “Save.” You’ll see an “Add a Category” link. But if you refresh, that link should disappear, and the category that you selected will show instead. These steps don’t make intuitive sense, so hopefully it’s a temporary bug. In the meantime, let me know if these steps work for you! h/t: Usman (Facebook)
