Profile vs Fan Page<br />Facebook profiles are for people!<br />Fan Pages are for businesses!<br />
Profile vs Fan Page<br />People vs Business<br /><ul><li> Profiles are intended for people, not businesses. It’s actually against the Facebook terms to use a profile for a business. If the Facebook finds your profile set up like this, it’s possible they may delete the entire profile. </li></ul>SEO<br /><ul><li> Your Facebook Fan Page can be a part of your Search Engine Optimization strategy. Why is that, you ask? It’s because Fan pages are indexed by search engines. Profiles are not!</li></li></ul><li>Profile vs Fan Page<br />Fans vs. Friends<br /><ul><li> Fan Pages can have an unlimited number of fans. Profiles can only have 5,000 friends. It only makes sense to choose the option that allows you to have more people for your business.</li></ul>One profile – many Fan Pages<br /><ul><li> You can have multiple fan pages, but only one personal profile.
