Facebook – Profile vs Page
Script & Screenshots
In this video I’m going to go over the difference between a Facebook profile vs a Facebook page.
The Facebook profile is meant for non-commercial use. It is for your personal use. On profiles you add people as your friends. You can share your pictures or videos from your vacation, of your family, pets, and so on. You can post Status updates of what you’re doing and your friends will see your updates in their news feed. You can also send messages to your friends & Family. And much more.
When it comes to privacy you can set your privacy level on your profile page so that only your friends can view it.
A Facebook page is made for organizations, businesses, celebrities and brands to communicate with people who like them. You can post stories, events, products updates, and add apps plus much more. People who like your Page and their friends can see your updates in their News Feed. Pages look similar to personal profiles, but they offer unique tools for businesses. They offer tools to help you manage and track growth and activity. Anyone can like a Page to connect with it and get News Feed updates. There is no limit to how many people can like a Page. You can also create customized apps for your Pages. Pages are totally separate from your personal profiles. You can’t see who the administrators are, they can’t see your vacation and family photos. They won’t know who you are from your page. For businesses you would like them instead of become their friends.
For privacy on pages, the Page information and posts are public and generally available to everyone on Facebook.
I’ve often been asked, can you create a profile account for a business? It’s against Facebooks guidelines to create a profile for your business. So it’s best not to risk a chance of them shutting down your profile and create a page instead. In order to set up a page, you have to have a personal profile. Every page has to have at least one administrator. You can manage as many pages as you’d like under your personal profile account.
Hopefully now it is more clear about the difference between a profile and a page. In this video series I will get into how to administer a Facebook page. I will not get into profiles other on how to create one since it is required to create a page. If you would like more information on pages, I’d suggest you go to www.facebook.com/business.
I’ll see you in our next video.
