Facebook Pages compared to Facebook Groups

Most organizations and companies choose to do a Facebook Page.  Pages can be searched for, people can be “like” them, there can be multiple administrators, and content posted by an administrator appears to come from the organization and not the individual.  Two examples are my own agency, the Literacy Assistance Center and the Warren St Marks Community Garden.  To create a Page for your organization, go to this link

Facebook Groups are better for  smaller groups of know people who are invited to join.  Groups only have one administrator and content posted by the administrator appears to come from that individual not the entity.  Groups could work well for a class or a working group.  Groups can be “open,” “closed” or “secret,” depending on who should have access.  You can create a group by clicking on the “Create a Group” link which usually shows up halfway down the left side of your Facebook Home screen.
