Facebook Business Manager is an all-encompassing tool that allows you to manage everything related to your business on Facebook and Instagram. A Business Manager account is necessary for you to run and manage ad campaigns on either platform.

To create a Business Manager account, you must already have a personal Facebook profile. This is separate from your Facebook business page, which also requires a personal account to create.
