Facebook Community Page launched as a beta in April 2010. There have been quite a few speculations and confusion about Community Pages, how they are made, who decides the Community Pages you link to, and what content they provide.
Facebook Community Pages are a new type of page that allows you to see what things people are saying about you, and to discover friends and people who might have connections with you. It is close to every other Page you can connect to, even though they won’t produce stories in your News Feed.
Things you need to know about Facebook Community Page
According to Facebook, the goal and essence of Facebook Community Page are to give us, users, a way to learn more about a topic and see what others in the Facebook community are saying related to this topic.
- When a topic becomes popular Facebook can take over it
Users can create other Community Pages, just as standard Pages are created. When creating a page you will see this message, “Generate support for your favorite cause or topic by creating a Community Page. If it becomes very popular (attracting thousands of fans), it will be adopted and maintained by the Facebook community.” So basically, Facebook can take control of it if you create a general topic page and it becomes very popular.
- Your Business Page can be recategorized as a Facebook Community Page at any time
Probably the most critical aspect for business users is that you can lose control of your Facebook Business Page at any time. If your page is recategorized as Community Page, you can appeal the decision to Facebook Support.
According to Entrepreneur.com, you can reduce the odds that Facebook will recategorize and take control of your Business Page by getting a vanity URL, updating your page regularly and actively working on the page.
