Groups offer far more control over who gets to participate. Permissions settings make it possible for group admins to restrict access to a group, so that new members have to be approved. Access to a Page, however, can only be restricted by certain ages and locations. Again, this makes groups more like a private club.
- This makes it a great option for instance for networking amongst Social Services Agencies. Sharing information at the top level rather than the user level.
- Would also be good for a more close knit community – People with Epilepsy for instance could have a safer more closed group.
