Client provided their facebook link that they want added to their website.  Yet, when I add the link and test it, the link opens up MY facebook account.  

1. How do I add a facebook link to clients SPECIFIC facebook page?
2.  Can someone that does NOT have a facebook page view this link?

Are you trying to get the link for someone's profile?  The format is http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=xxxx  Where xxxx is the specific users profile id.

If your boss has all their privacy settings set to everyone, then anyone with a facebook account should be able to see his information.

Here's a suggestion - unless I'm not understanding your question...

You might want to talk to your client about setting up a business page off of their personal facebook page.  The business page can be setup so people can view the information without even having a facebook account.  This would allow him/her to keep their personal facebook page just for those that have been friended.

Go to www.urbanhope.net to see an example of a business page embedded into a webpage.

We want everyone to be able to view facebook link even if you don't have an account.  So, can we use the profile solution or are we stuck making a business facebook page?  Also, I was of the impression that facebook frowned on someone having multiple facebook accounts (personal and business)

I've only used 'facebook pages' for public organizations/businesses not a 'business page.'  Take a look at the link below to see if what it's describing is what you're looking for.

http://www.facebook.com/FacebookPages?v=app_7146470109#!/note.php?note_id=68842278095

The 'facebook page' is created after you log into your existing profile page.  Once the 'facebook page' is created, it becomes a separate group of pages with it's own address and open to the public.

I don't think the profile solution can be setup to be viewed without a facebook account, but I could be wrong.
