Some of you fellow online article writers might be wondering if it is better to post your work on a Facebook Profile or a Facebook Page. The short answer is it depends. Here are the main differences between Profiles and Pages in Facebook. Consider what works best for you.
Profile. This is the most common type of facebook account, which most individual facebook members use. It allows you to have friends, which is beneficial to online writers who want their contacts to see the articles they post. It also allows you to post in other advantageous places, such as what people refer to as Facebook Fan Pages. For example, if you’ve just written a juicy article about Demi Lovato or Justin Bieber, you might want to share it with members of a Demi Lovato or Justin Bieber Fan Page within Facebook. But make sure your content is indeed relevant to the subject, or it may be viewed as spam.
Page. Facebook pages are used primarily by businesses or other groups (such as musicians, artists, writers and politicians) trying to promote themselves. Facebook pages have limitations and restrictions that Facebook profiles do not. These include the inability to add friends or to post on other accounts. This is mostly to prevent spam. There are two features of a Facebook Page that a writer might find beneficial. The first is that it offers viewers a sense of professionalism from you. The second is that you can advertise a Facebook Page–for a price, of course. The views you expect to receive have to offset the price of the ad, for this to be worthwhile.
Of course, you could have both a profile and a page. This requires only one facebook account, but separate maintenance of the profile and the page. Additionally, if you want to keep professional contacts separate, it may require a bit of extra effort to gear them toward your page as opposed to your profile. Going by the same name on both the profile and the page could be a source of confusion to readers who may not be sure on which they are expected to interact with you.
Hope this provides some useful guidance.
