There is no question that Facebook is a powerful social media network. Many businesses have been building their brand and customer base with Facebook. In this article you will discover the truth about the common topic, Facebook Personal Profile vs Facebook Page for artists.
“These days, social media waits for no one. If you’re late for the party, you’ll probably be covered by all the noise and you might not be able to get your voice across. It could only mean that if you want to be heard by the crowed you have to be fast; and on social media, that means you have to be really fast.”
Facebook Personal Profile vs Facebook Page
Facebook offers a personal profile page for you to manage. This allows you to connect with friends, family, and meet new people.
Facebook keeps growing and is the most popular social media network as of 2016.
- 1.01 billion active users
- 894 million mobile daily active users
- 55 billion monthly active users
- 33 billion mobile monthly active users
Facebook has also added a way for businesses to be able to engage with their audience with the Facebook Business Page. Let’s go over the difference between the two.
Facebook Personal Page
Facebook lets you connect with people and find out more about them. Your personal page lets you share personal information to your friend list. It is a great way to find out what your friends are most interested in and what the hot topics are in real time. This knowledge will greatly help the content that you are sharing for your business.
Personal pages are exactly what it says. It is for personal reasons. Do not spam your friend’s timeline with advertisements. If they are interested in your business they will have the option to follow your business page. This is where they will find the latest information about your business and be able to engage with you about your business.
You are not allowed to use a personal profile strictly for a business. Read Facebook’s Terms of Service.
Facebook Business Page
A Facebook business page allows a business to share its brand and to engage with its customers.
To start a Facebook Business page you must have a personal page first.
It is important for a business to have a Professional Facebook Page for their business.
- A business can build their brand
- A Business can learn what their audience’s likes and dislikes are.
- A business can build trust with their following.
- A business can keep their audience up-to-date with any new news they have.
If have been using your personal page for your business, I highly recommend you to start a business page. I have heard of situations that individuals have lost their Facebook Personal Page because they used it only to promote their business. Do not let that happen to you.
