					         What Is the Difference Between a Profile
         Page & an Organization Page on
         Facebook?
         By Lara Webster, eHow Contributor | updated September 03, 2011




                                                                               Facebook friends see your personal
         profile content by default.

         Facebook is available to both individuals and organizations, although the two entities are
         likely to use the site quite differently. Any individual is allowed to open a personal profile
         and communicate with his friends for fun. If you want to use the site to promote a
         business, club or nonprofit organization, a page is more appropriate. However, you must
         have a personal Facebook profile to create an organization page.

    1. Privacy
    o      If you are the owner of a personal profile on Facebook, each piece of content that you post
           may be made completely public or restricted from certain users. Many users opt to hide all
           content from nonfriends, so that only people they personally know have access to
     information on the profile. If you have a page for an organization, anything posted to the
     page becomes public content. The only way to restrict the visibility of a page is to place it
     in unpublished status, so that only administrators see the content.

    Purpose
o    The purpose of a profile on Facebook is to connect with your friends and contacts. For the
     most part, a personal profile is used for leisure and staying in the loop of your loved ones'
     lives. A Facebook page, on the other hand, serves to get the word out about a particular
     product, business or celebrity personality. Pages are meant to promote something, rather
     than communicate just for the sake of it.

    Connections
o    Relationships on a personal profile are mutual -- when you request someone as a friend
     and she approves the request, you appear on each other's friend list. A page does not
     collect friends, but rather people who "like" the page. When someone likes a Facebook
     page, it appears on the "Info" tab of her profile and she can post to the page's wall. The
     page administrator, however, cannot see her profile unless her privacy is set to "Public."

    Communication
o    Owners of a personal profile have several communication options available to them;
     profile pages use wall posts, chat and private messaging. If someone has a page for an
     organization, the wall feature on the page functions much the same as a personal profile.
     The updates of a page also appear in the news feed of people who "like" it, just like the
     updates of a friend. Pages cannot, however, communicate via chat or send messages.

        new friends and share your photos and updates. However, Facebook is also a place for
        businesses to do the same. Whether you manage a big business or are your own brand, a
        page on Facebook will help you reach out to fans and customers. With just a few clicks,
        your page can interact with fans and friends.
