There maybe some confusion over the two but just try keep in mind the differences between Facebook profiles and Facebook Fan pages. With the help from the Google + support forum  I’ve highlighted some of their main differences:

     

    • – With Pages you can’t add people to your circles until the page is added first or is mentioned by a user.

 

    • – Pages can  also be made for a variety of different entities each as;  a Local Business or Place, a Product or Brand,  Company, Institution or Organization, Arts, Entertainment or Sports whereas profiles can only be made for people.

 

 

 

    • – Pages can’t +1 other page, nor can they +1 stuff on the wider web. (But like profiles, they can +1 inside Google+.) So you may wish to endorse some content related to your business or industry.

 

    • – The default privacy setting for elements on your page profile is public.

 

    • – Pages can’t play games- So you have no worries about your Social Media Manager getting distracted.

 

    • – Pages don’t have the option to share to ‘Extended circles’ this includes people in your circles’ circles.

 

    • – Pages can’t hangout (a smart video conference feature) on a mobile device.
