Your page is your identity. Really it is the first thing users see once they click on your profile. Try to design your page to be unique and fit your personality. Go for a specific post pattern, or opt for a page mural. Tap into your creative imagination and have fun with it.
#3- Pick a Cool and Catchy name

It is also a good way to create some buzz and has your name thrown around, especially if it’s catchy!
