Characteristics of Facebook Pages (Fan Page):

Fans: the followers are called fans. To become a fan of a Page, just click the Like button.
Visibility: everybody can access your Page, even those who don’t have a Facebook account.
Limit of friends: on Facebook Pages there is no limit whereas on personal accounts the limit is 5,000 friends. You can also follow as many Pages as you want.
Statistics: this is one of the biggest differences between personal accounts and Pages. Statistics help you to find out more about your followers and how they interact with you.
Facebook ads: you can use Facebook advertisements. This is an easy and economical way to make your Page visible to millions of users.
Applications: apps are programmes that can be installed in your Facebook Page to provide it with new features.

Fan Pages also allow you to add a widget to your website so your visitors can easily become fans and click the Like button.
