Facebook Personal Page Vs Group And Fan Pages

Have you recently took a good look on your Facebook Timeline and notice what is being liked and or shared? If not, then I suggest you do.

Facebook Personal Page:

What is it being used for, most of us remember the 2010 movie The Social Network where Jesse Eisenberg played the part as Mark Zuckerberg, Right? Anyway, Facebook of today has changed and has become a large powerhouse Social Media Network.  Personal Pages are just that, personal. We add friends, co-workers, relatives from Facebook postsMom & Pops to siblings and cousins and once in a while get hit on to following a famous person. Some might even add a person to collect more game pieces. When we like a certain page that news feed is added to our Timeline and the people in our list of friends might see those too. The image you see to the left is one of my cousin’s post, a post of missing her grandfather that has 30 likes and a few comments. That’s’ great family and friend support for a personal post, but would’nt be neat to get those stats on one of our Blog posts.

Games facebook games, apps

One of the largest feeds I see today from young to old is seeing people playing games and if you are a friend of theirs then you get those game_invitesautomated requests inviting you to join. Don’t get me wrong, I am a gamer, but I prefer my Xbox 360 while making efforts to harness the power of Facebook to utilize the tools to market my Blog, writings, and thoughts.

SelfiesAnother rampant use I see is Selfies! This one of my Ex-wife’s daughter a beautiful young lady and when posted had 11 likes, 3 comments, and 1 share.

SelfiesThis one has 10 likes, she is the mother to my grand nephews.



Halloween trick or treatAnother form of sharing that does rather well on a personal page is like the one you see to the left with the Gim Reaper, it appeared on my timeline from Wallace a fellow Blogger, I then shared it and almost instantly got 8 likes, one being a cousin who then reshared it out to her Timeline and got 7 likes. This image was originally shared October of 2014 and still making it around the globe.


Stay tuned for part 2!

  1. I’ve found Facebookers are a completely different breed to Tweeters. I hardly get any traffic on Facebook (my blog page, not personal Facebook). Granted, I only have 38 followers (come find me people!) but the likes only seem to appear on photos, not links to blog posts.

    Strangely, I get more blog referrals from Facebook than I do Twitter, but the ones from Twitter then go on to interact / follow etc.

    My mum says people don’t have time to click a link and read a whole post, so Facebook is quick likes on cute pictures.

    I’d like to think the brevity of Twitter means people are used to having to click further to find out more, but it’s probably more a sign of society rather than the functions and etiquette of a particular platform. Why else would we have a need for Vine?!

    1. True they are a different breed. I have two other posts I am working on one about groups and the last Fan Page, FYI I just liked your page and shared it on my timeline. I do know that most US based people​ use some of their lunch half an hour to get fast Facebook updates or fast shares of cute animals or food to sending a message to some real fast.

      1. Thank you for the like and share 🙂 Not really sure whether I can like personal pages can I? I’ll have to login via laptop and have a look so I can return the favour!


        1. I have two pages one is my personal page and then my Fan page Michael’s Origins, that can be found on the right side of my Blog. From a Fan page it would not let me like a page, I had to do from my personal page.

          1. I should be able to like your fan page, via Aloada Bobbins’ fan page then. I just have to change user details when logged in and I can’t do that from a mobile device. As far as I’m aware!


      1. I use my personal Facebook less and less, but I’ll not give it up as there are a lot of memories. Plus, it gives easy access to many friends who have moved abroad etc. Only just revisiting Twitter due to the blog, but currently enjoying it a lot more. I still don’t fully understand all the nuances and hashtag-ery but I’m getting there!
