Yesterday we told you about Facebook’s tool that let’s you change your personal profile to a fan or business page with just a few clicks.But Mashable is reporting that Facebook has deleted the tool after it had been live for less than a week.

That seems to be the case. When you try visiting the tool’s link from yesterday, it directs to set up a new fan page from scratch instead.

It was a pretty useful service, but it appears that many people were confused by what it actually does and got stuck with fan pages instead of personal profiles.
