     Go ahead - pick one of these 6 categories for your new page(the best that suits your page). When you
    do, the image flips up and reveals a drop-down box where you can choose
    something very specific to that category.

    Once you've found a category that's similar to whatever your Page will
    be about, you can then type out the "Name" for your page. If you don't
    know what to pick, believe me, you'll have a more clear picture once you
    administer the Page for awhile. Once again, you can always change the
    category in the future if you believe something better should have been

       When I try to change the category from "company" to "local business" it just flips back to "company" after I have saved it.
      Indronil - if you are able to successfully make this change please could you explain hw you did so. Thanks.
