Facebook Page vs. Facebook Profile – What’s the Difference?

Naomi Trower's Facebook profile

What is the difference between a Facebook Page and a Facebook Profile, you ask? The most common user account is a Facebook profile. It is personal in nature where you can add your business or personal websites. You can integrate business related imports such as your blog or feeds such as FriendFeed and Twitter.

A Facebook Page is actually a page that promotes a business, a music group, favorite TV show or politician. It is not as easily found on Facebook how to create these pages. These pages are free, however, you can pay to do some advertising campaigns. There are various applications that you can add to these pages as well but they aren’t as interactive as your main profile page.

Your main profile page allows you to have up to 5,000 friends. I know most of you are thinking why would I want more than that? Well it all depends on what your focus is on Facebook. The Facebook page, however, is unlimited to the number of fans that join your group. This is a great way to capture more customers, fans or friends when you reach your personal profile limit.

Comment below if you would like to create your own Facebook page. Here are my Facebook pages My Health & Fitness Page, My Internet Marketing Store, Social Media Marketing and my personal profile.  Feel free to become a fan of my pages and add me as a friend! The number of people flocking to Facebook is growing rapidly on a daily basis so get on over there and mingle!

What is Facebook All About?

We hear about people creating Facebook pages and that someone found someone else on Facebook. But what exactly is Facebook all about and does it have any benefits for us? Read on to find out about Facebook and if it indeed does something more than enhance your social life.

Facebook is one of the top ten Web 2.0 applications and social networking sites in the world with 200 million users. Started as a social experiment, Facebook was originally designed as a way for friends to keep in touch and create interesting profiles and pages for others to look at.

Facebook is not just for young teenagers and college students however. It is also a networking tool for business owners. It’s a great way to connect with other business owners and target potential customers.

I have a friend, Mari Smith, who is known as the Pied Piper of Facebook. I’m constantly learning from her the most effective ways to be successful in my business using Facebook. The core is about relationship marketing because people are more inclined to buy from those they know. Check out her site for more specific direction.

Entrepreneurs can use their Facebook profile to tell others all about themselves. Many times, businesses never really have a chance for potential clients to learn more about the person or people who run the business.

More focus is put on advertising, growing the business and promoting its products or services. With a social networking page on social sites like Facebook, customers and other business associates get a chance to find out about the person behind the business.

Businesses use Facebook pages to showcase products or give customers a place to ask questions and record comments about the products they have used. They can talk to each other and compare notes. Big businesses with famous brand names use Facebook to gain insights into consumer trends.

Facebook can be useful for communities trying to create a closer knit group of families. Homeschooling parents can create a network of support for each other and their kids. Facebook has a variety of uses both for business and personal reasons.

So, now that you know more concerning Facebook, what will your page be about? I know that I have to work on constructing a few pages for my separate businesses. There is always something to continuously improve upon in our business. Feel free to add me as a friend on my Facebook profile.

Here are a few Facebook Tips that I implement on a daily basis that bring me new customers:

1. Update my status on a daily basis (sometimes 2x’s / day)
2. Give a birthday shout out for all of my friends
3. Comment on other statuses / Click on Like for activities or links that interest you
4. Become fans of a number of Facebook Pages

All of these strategies provide visibility for your business which in turn can create customers.
