What is the Difference Between a Personal Facebook Page and a Fan Page for Business?

Jarred - As usual, great blog ... full of information and very easy to read! I'm always impressed that you seem to be on the cutting edge of everything techie Keep up the good work, everyone should have an opportunity to read this blog!



You're about to discover the difference between a personal Facebook page and a fan page for business.

A personal Facebook page lets you share personal updates, photos, information with your friends. A business fan page, on the other hand, gives you the capability to do so much more.

Many real estate agents believe that if they have a personal Facebook page that they are taking full advantage of Facebook. This, however, is not the case.

Without a fan page you cannot have customized tabs on your Facebook. Customized tabs  transform your Facebook fan page into a powerful lead generation tool. They give you the ability to display important information like market data, listings, testimonials, and a MLS search on your page. This information is essential to your clients and they will appreciate that you are taking the time to provide them with this data.


Fan pages, unlike personal pages, can include an opt-inform on your page that collects contact information from potential clients. With this contact information you will be able to reach out to and fully take advantage of these new leads.

If you have convinced yourself that a Facebook fan page is essential to your business, then contact REIC today.
