Convert Facebook profile into fan page

Great news for those of you who have hit or almost hit your 5,000 friend limit on your Facebook profile…

Though it hasn't been formally announced, you can now convert your Facebook profile into a Facebook page--and convert all of your "friends" into "fans."

The process is pretty simple, it seems--using the "Profile to Business Migration Tool," users can move their Facebook profiles into Facebook page territory. At the moment, only a user's profile pictures and friends will be migrated to their new page, so if you plan on using this tool it would be wise to back-up your Facebook data.

The user's friends will automatically be converted into fans, or people who "like" the page.
