Leave a comment

There are still many people who think, wrongly, that creating a personal profile of their company instead of a page will get better results because “the page reaches few people” while the personal profiles of users are usually Put in good light from Facebook and therefore more exposed.

What you don’t know is that people first see bad light who makes use of personal pages on Facebook instead of using fan pages.

Why? Because it is an inkling of non-professionalism and spam (that is, someone who tries in every way to pass a message) having the fear that you will spend the days tagging people in your photos or sending annoying messages.

Also the profiles have limits that the fan pages do not have;

  • You can not enter times, addresses, products etc
  • You can’t have reviews
  • You can’t view statistics
  • You can not connect apps and plugins
  • You can’t advertise
  • You can’t have more than tot friends

So all you have to do is build a Facebook page.
