Facebook page is one of the features many people don’t really know what it is or how it work. A Facebook page is like an office on Facebook, just as we have office offline where people walk in to know what you are doing. Either you run a business in form of company or buying and selling, or you are a career person, or you are into sports. Whichever, you can open an office to receive people, offer your goods and services or seal deals.
That is what the Facebook page is all about, an office online (in Facebook). It allows you to create an online office with options for different kind of categories in business and profession. The options include local businesses, companies, organizations or institutions, brands or products, artists, bands or public figures, entertainment etc. you can create a page using any of these categories.
If you are into any sort of business, or you run a company, or you are into any sort of occupation Facebook page is the right tool in Facebook or in social media that you can explore. It’s designed with the right settings and configuration to help you showcase yourself to the world. When you have a page and someone likes your page he or she receives updates of your activities in the timeline.
So, if you are a business owner or a writer, or lawyer, or football, or singer, or a politician, or whatever profession you practice and you don’t have a Facebook page try create one and maximize it’s usefulness.
Facebook group is another feature in Facebook. The Facebook group is use to assemble people of similar interests.
