Updates to the group do not go into Newsfeed and event invitations come from individuals, not the group. People come to associate events with the fellows and not with orgFan Page Multiple admins can create events and message members. Updates from a Fan Page show up in Newsfeeds and event invitations come from organization instead of the individual fellow. That helps secure the relationship and branding of organization. Fan Pages can favourite pages of other groups to show affiliations. You can also add applications and make ―bespoke tabs‖ on your Fan Page. Fan pages can be connected to the blog and out to your Twitter account to make it easier to communicate.
