Other differences include:
Pages: Privacy: Page information and posts are
public and generally available to everyone on Facebook.
Audience: Anyone can like a Page to become connected
with it and get News Feed updates. There is no limit to how
many people can like a Page.
Communication: Page admins can share posts under the Page’s name. Page posts appear in the News Feed of people who like the Page.
Page admins can also create customized apps for their Pages and check
Page Insights to track the Page’s growth and activity.
