  13. 13.  Fan Pages allow you to interact with and stay up-to-date on your favorite public figures, organizations and businesses.  When you become a fan of a Page, you are connecting with that organization or public figure and will begin seeing status updates, photos, videos and other posts from the Page.
  14. 14.  There are several ways to find and become a fan of your favorite Page: Type the name of the celebrity, artist, brand or organization in the Search box in the upper-right corner of any page on Facebook. From the results page, select the Pages filter in the left-side menu to show only Page results. Click the "Become a Fan" link next to the Page name and posts from that Page will begin appearing on your home page.  If you already know the web address, or URL, of the Page you want, simply type it in the address bar of your web browser. For instance, to find Vin Diesel on Facebook, you can navigate directly to www.facebook.com/VinDiesel. From there, select the "Become a Fan" button next to the Page's name.  You also can become a fan of a Page that you discover from your friends' recent connections. For example, if you see a News Feed story about your friend becoming a fan of the iTunes Page, you can connect with it by clicking the "Become a Fan" link within the story or click on the name of the Page to check it out further.

Remember that you always have the option to remove yourself as a fan of any Page if you want to stop receiving updates or no longer want to be connected. Go to the Page and click on the link "Remove me from Fans" at the bottom of the left-side menu. Check out the nearly 1.4 million active Pages on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pages to start connecting and interacting with your favorite celebrities, political leaders, media outlets, non-profit organizations, TV shows, musicians, and much more.
