What is a Facebook Page?
Sometimes referred to as a "Fan Page", a Facebook page is a single page where you can share & talk about any particular subject you want: a celebrity, a blog or whatever your heart desires. Think of it as a one-page meeting place, with information, links, a message forum box, RSS and anything else you want.
Want to promote your blog? Then Facebook is one of the best choices when it comes about social networking sites. To see how a Facebook fan page looks like, please visit our Facebook Fan Page.
