Facebook Pages, Groups and Profile; Their Differences

3 Comments

Facebook provides different features for people, organizations and brands/businesses to have them connected and engaged with friends, family and other audience/community.

We might get confused and create the wrong entity to represent ourselves on Facebook.

Facebook Pages are for celebrities, businesses, organizations and brands to share their stories and connect/engage with audience created by official representatives.

Facebook Groups are for specific sets of people who have similar interests on an individual entity, be it a brand, business, person, event or anything.

Facebook Profile timeline are for individuals/people for sharing their photos, stories, and experiences to their family, friends and people they wish.

Use of Facebook profiles by business entities and creating a page by a person not related to the entity are against the Facebook Terms and conditions.

To better understand the differences between Facebook Page, Group or Profile, the below tabular representation will be helpful:

  1. Currently it looks like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  2. Memory leak errors can start happening out of the blue and they can make using your computer next to impossible.

    Outside of the consumer world enterprises have spent and continue to invest millions of dollars
    every year on enhancing corporate video conferencing
    from committed video conference rooms, Telepresence suites to desktop
    as well as the emerging mobile video conferencing.

    A number of other companies have jumped on the success of Skype notably
    Apple with Facetime and Google with Google also as a ton of other
    chat and video applications website.

  3. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
