Hi Dr Gandalf,

I am setting up a Facebook page for my practice and just have a question with regards to setting up a practice Facebook profile as well to run the page on. Would that be more straightforward and allow more people to access it because it’s coming from a generic profile rather than someone’s personal account i.e. mine?



Thank you for the message Jocelyn. I would have a ‘practice’ profile that you can then allow others to use in the practice to coordinate. It is what I do for our practice and set up as a business account as you get more features.

Hi Dr Gandalf,

I am quite keen to start a FB Page for the surgery that I work with but wanted to know if there is a way we can hide comments (patients in this case) and not be shown on the FB page at all. Basically I want to use this page as a one-way communication tool
