Facebook FAN PAGE vs Facebook GROUP PAGE
A comparsion between facebook fan page and facebook group page. By being part of a student organization in the past year, I was in charge of building a social media presence for our student group. I was face with the decision to either create a facebook fan page or a facebook group page. With that responsibility, I present the pro’s and con’s of each page functionalities and how it will help the group reach its intended goal of reaching out to our members.
I figure this will be a beneficial to know the difference and why some organization or people preferred to use one over another.
I completely agree with Craig Donato’s post about the importance of building meaningful relationship in online communities with a conversational tone which will require “marketer to act human.”
Businesses cannot aim to build their company in the old way of marketing to consumers anymore. Now, the power is in the consumer’s hand. Facebook fan pages that promote too much will turn off followers. It must have a balance in order to retain these followers. By engaging through conversations, a facebook fan pages will have a strong base of loyal fans. Marketer’s goal should be to build an emotional connection with customers to their brand.
The majorities of my “like” for facebook fan pages are usually pages that are consistently updated, create interesting discussion, have interesting photo albums, links and various others. Advertising that tried to sell to us doesn’t influence us the way it used to. If I want to purchase something such as a car, computer, or mp3 player, I would normally read the reviews online or ask my family and friend for recommendation. I would take into consideration of people’s opinions that have used a particular product or service before and have positive feedback. It would increase my chance of buying that product or using that service.
