Now, a new hack will help small business owners convert their Facebook page into a traditional website within minutes.

Pager , developed during the 24-hour Disrupt NY Hackathon by a team of three engineers, is very simple. Users just have to log in using their Facebook account and they are presented with a list of their Facebook pages. After selecting a page, the website goes live automatically, reported TechCrunch.

The hack sorts all the information on the user’s Facebook page into four categories- About, News, Events and Galleries. The ‘About’ page presents the business’ contact info and opening hours, while the news page displays their wall posts, events and galleries. Darrel-Day Guerrero said that the main idea behind the hack was to allow small business owners to use Facebook to manage a website

Although not everything works just yet but the team has implemented all the underlying code that leverages the Facebook API.
