Facebook Community Pages

Facebook has introduced a new concept called Community Pages. These pages are not the same as a Group, or a Business Page. You can “Like” a Community Page, but not join it. You can’t post to a Community Page directly, but you can post indirectly.

As you can see in the above image, this page is title “Bed and Breakfasts“. The page has 323 “Likers”, and looks like a regular FB page, except at the top, you only see three tabs: “Info”, “Related Posts” and “Wikipedia”. Under “Info” you will see a Wiki article about the topic of the page, with related posts underneath. Under “Related Posts”, you will see various posts with the topic name in bold characters. Then under “Wikipedia”, you will the see the Wiki article again.

This is the “Related Posts” tab. It’s a bit hard to see, but you will notice that all of the posts have the words “Bed and Breakfasts” in them. These are posts that individual business pages and personal profiles have made, on their own pages, which have transferred to this Community Page. As I said before, you can’t post directly to these pages, but as you can see, if you look at the actual page, several innkeepers from Acorn’s Club 60 Webinar this morning went out and posted to it by using the phrase “Bed and Breakfasts” in their Wall posts.

It appears that these pages are created when people list topics under their “Likes and Interests” in the “info” tab. I checked mine and found one for my high school.  In one case, an Inn had a community page because their employees listed them as  “Employer” under their Likes and Interests.

In the end, if you find that your inn has a Community Page, it’s nothing to worry about, it can co-exist peacefully withe your Business “Like” Page with no problem.
