Facebook Pages

[ 0 ] July 13, 2013 |

Facebook’s Pages are designed for businesses, organizations and brands to share their stories and connect with people. Facebook had broken grounds with their offering of online presence to individuals through Facebook Personal Accounts that have at one time or the other included a Home, Wall, Profile, News Feed, Messages/Chat and/or Timeline. Facebook Pages appears to be an initiative to give online presence to such entities as businesses, organizations and brands. So, Facebook Pages are to businesses, organizations, brands, causes, etc what Facebook Personal Accounts are to individuals.

One major difference between individuals that can open accounts on Facebook and entities that Facebook Pages are designed for is the fact that such entities such as businesses, organization and brands are not human. However, they almost always have humans who either work for them, own them, or represent them. This raises one of the features of Facebook Pages that make them different from Personal accounts – Admin, and by extension, Admin Panel.

An individual can connect with a Facebook Page by liking the Page. Such a person is a fan of the Page. This is equivalent to being friends with another individual on Facebook.

Like timelines, Pages can be customized by adding apps, posting stories, hosting events and more. Posting regularly on a Page can attract more engagement and help grow the Page’s audience. People who like a Page and their friends will get updates in their News Feed.

You can create a Facebook Page from your personal account. (You have to be signed in to be able to create a Facebook Page)

Note: Only the official representative of an organization, business, celebrity or band is permitted to create a Page.
