Differences between Facebook page and Facebook group
In many cases, a Facebook page and a Facebook group are the same but there are many differences.
Pages and groups may be created for the same purposes as like for a business or other purposes.
A page is created to spread products among the users but a group is created for collecting information about the user experience of the products.
You become a fan of a page by liking the page, and you will get all the updates of the page. For a Facebook group, at first, you need to join the group.
