Facebook Groups Now Look and Function Like Fan Pages

Knot Pipatsrisawat, a software engineering intern in Facebook, recently came out with a Facebook Note announcing some updates in Facebook Groups. Good! For a while, everyone started creating Fan Pages and the original feature to creating communities in the online social networking giant was left in isolation.

The first update is the new design – Facebook Group will “more or less” look similar to Fan Pages and Profile pages. Good or bad, at least, they’ve updated it.

The second update is, just like Fan Pages and Wall Posts, Facebook Group activities will be delivered to every member’s News Feed. However, you will only see stories when one of your friends posts within the Group rather than all the members. You can follow the links from your News Feed directly back to the Facebook Group or make comments on your Home page – just like Fan Pages.

However, Pipatsrisawat mentions that Facebook Group and Fan Page are still different. The former fosters member-to-member collaboration while the latter allows one-to-many broadcasts.
