The profile page is your personal information that you wish to share with family, friends, coworkers, etc. Sharing your favorite books, movies, musics along with where you are from and your current city you reside. Sharing personal information with family and friends on Facebook is easy and more fun than email. Sharing photos and videos has exploded within the last few years.
Now more than ever, small business and large business are seeing how important it is to have a presence on FaceBook. A marketing tool that has increased awareness for consumers but also gives them a way to interact with these companies.
So the big question still remains today ….. do you want a Group or a Fan Page.
The following is from a post I received last year from Spencer Spellman …. and he says it best:
“Facebook Groups are good for narrowing in on interests. If you’re a part of an organization in a city, you can use a Facebook group for promoting upcoming events or post relevant topics that members would respond to. Although groups can be used for conversation, they often become more of an brand identity, rather than a place for dialoguing with other group members.
Facebook Fan pages on the other hand, although they sound like groups, are actually much different. Fan pages allow the same type of interaction as group pages but with much more options for customization and personalization. Similar to group pages, a Facebook Fan page has a wall and can have a discussion board, but it can also have much more, like Facebook applications, flash and html code. Because of the flexibility of using html code, fan pages can be customized to look similar to a web site. Although fan pages often are pages devoted to a particular athlete, actor or hero, they are quickly becoming much more than that, with pages for marketers, realtors, magazines and writers.”

Does this help to take the confusion out of deciding Group vs Fan Page?
