A Facebook Page can give users a deeper understanding of the lives and inner workings of the people and things they care about. By making the Page a source for this special access, users will frequently visit, avidly await updates, follow calls to action, and tie their identity more closely to what the Page represents. Intimacy is particularly effective for Pages representing public figures since it can make users feel like they are friends with someone they admire.
