Facebook answers the question: What is a Facebook Page? Pages are for businesses, brands and organizations to share their stories and connect with people. They offer unique tools for businesses, brands and organizations. Like profiles, you can customize Pages by publishing stories, hosting events, adding apps and more. People who like your Page and their friends can get updates in News Feed. (Note to the user: in order to actually receive updates from a Facebook Page you’ve liked, you must take an additional step, or two. After you’ve clicked LIKE, hover over the LIKE drop-down box to see options for receiving/viewing that page’s posts; the most popular option being NOTIFICATIONS / All on).
Visit Paper Chaser’s business Facebook page for educational and informational content and topics focused on (but not limited to) small business ownership, small business startup, time management, business to business communications, portable careers, military spouse employment, working with and working as a Virtual Assistant, and the business of being Paper Chaser. Remember, after you LIKE the page, hover over the LIKE to view the drop-down box to see options for receiving/viewing the page’s posts; select NOTIFICATIONS / All on.
For cost-saving purposes, I’ve seen nonprofits and startups opting to use a Facebook page for their primary online presence versus a website.
