Now, I have been around on Facebook for quite some time. I remember when in the UK it was only possible to get onto the platform if one had an email address from Oxford or
Cambridge another place. Fortunately for me, at that point, I did.
Since that time, Facebook has changed dramatically. We now have a multiplicity of ways of using it.
In recent days I have come across a number of profiles (one is Join Glyni) that are actually for organisations, not individuals. If we check the Facebook Basics page we see:
Timelines are for personal, non-commercial use only. They represent individuals and must be held under an individual name. Pages are for professional or official use, and allow an organization, business, celebrity or band to maintain a presence on Facebook. You may only create Facebook Pages to represent real organizations of which you are an authorized representative.
In addition, Pages are managed by admins who have personal Facebook timelines. Pages are not separate Facebook accounts and do not have separate login information from your timeline. They are merely different entities on our site, similar to how Groups and Events function. Once you have set up a Page within your timeline, you may add other admins to help you manage this Page. People who choose to connect to your Page won’t be able to see that you are the Page admin or have any access to your personal account.
Surely this is not too difficult to understand.
