There's really no mystery/special workaround to link to Facebook pages from DW...

1. Go to your Facebook page from your computer's browser (do not log into Facebook, log out if you are)
2. Copy the entire address in the browser's location bar
3. In DW's Design View (and/or Live View in later versions) click the image you want to use as a link
4. Paste the address into the Link field of the Properties window and hit Enter/Return
5. Save and upload your page

That's really all there is to it.

Don't overthink this.  Simply place a text link anywhere on your site that leads to your FB  URL.

 

<a href="https://your_facebook_page.com">Link to Facebook</a>

Thanks Nancy. I'm not overthinking this, however, I need the link to be from an image to my Facebook Business Page and I tried to use the Hyperlink feature in Dreamweaver but it did not work.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. I was logged into Facebook and when I logged out and did what Jon said, it worked. All of you are amazing! Thanks again.

Just had a thought...

The steps I gave won't work if your Facebook page is set to Private. It will just give a "This Page Isn't Available..." warning with a bandaged Facebook like icon.

Make sure your "Page Visibility" in your Facebook admin area is set to "Public". That will allow you (and prospective customers) to find/browse to the page without being logged in so you can grab the correct link to put in your site.

In addition to what Jon said about linking to FB public pages, if something in your site doesn't work as expected, check your code for errors.   Go to Window > Results > Validation, check document.
