Tell a story with your Facebook page
- Experiment. What may have worked three years ago may not work today.
- Facebook Live is a great way to tell a story honestly and invite your followers into your world.
- Your Facebook strategy should get your followers to engage and ultimately to become advocates for you.

Facebook Page vs Group
- With a Page, you can talk to your audience, and your audience can talk to you.
- Your audience “Likes” your page to follow you, and popular pages can have hundreds of thousands of Likes.
- Pages are public.
- With a Group, you can talk to your audience, your audience can talk to you, and your audience can talk to one another. Like an online forum or bulletin board.
- Your audience “Joins” your page, subject to your approval.
- Groups can be public, closed, or even secret.
