FACEBOOK IS CLOSING ACCOUNTS THAT ARE A 'BUSINESS' IN THEIR VIEW. PROFILE SHOULD ONLY HAVE YOUR ACTUAL NAME. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO RUN A BUSINESS OR SELL FROM A PROFILE, ONLY FROM A PAGE. CREATE A PAGE / CHANGE THE NAME OF YOUR PROFILE... EITHER *SHOULD* WORK.
You will not use your personal timeline primarily for your own commercial gain, and will use a Facebook Page for such purposes.
And, Facebook notes in its help files that personal accounts are for "individual, non-commercial use".
Thus, Facebook does have the right to disable personal accounts used for businesses and will exercise this right as it sees fit.
The good news is that, if you are using a personal profile as a business, you can easily convert it to a Facebook Page. And, in fact, Pages have significant advantages over a personal profile for promoting your business and measuring the effectiveness of your promotional activities.
The bottom line? If you are using a personal Facebook profile for business purposes, you would be wise to convert it to a Facebook Page sooner, rather than later.
