    • Facebook page/public profile
      • A page is a Facebook profile for a brand (business, institution or public figure). Pages allow an organization to converse and interact with users as a single entity.
    • Pages vs. groups
      • Pages:
      • Only represent a real public figure, artist, brand or organization, and may only be created by an official representative of that entity.
      • Groups:
      • Can be created by any user and about any topic, as a space for users to share their opinions and interest in that subject.
    • Pages vs. groups
      • Pages:
      • Will never display their admins' names. Any action taken will carry the identity of the brand/page.
      • Groups:
      • Will display the admins’ names. Any action taken will appear to come from the individual admin.
    • Pages vs. groups
      • Pages:
      • Have no limits on fans/subscribers.
      • Pushes content posted by admins out to the fans’ news feeds. Notifications of fan activity appear on the fan’s profile wall.
      • Groups:

      • Displays posted content on its wall only. Notifications of the poster’s activity appear on the poster’s profile wall.
