Tell a story with your Facebook page

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

Facebook Page vs Group


  1. With a Page, you can talk to your audience, and your audience can talk to you.
  2. Your audience “Likes” your page to follow you, and popular pages can have hundreds of thousands of Likes.
  3. Pages are public.


  1. 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.
  2. Your audience “Joins” your page, subject to your approval.
  3. Groups can be public, closed, or even secret.
