Facebook has 1.18 billion daily active users. Let’s put that in perspective. That’s over 5X the population of the United States, 15% of the world population … and it’s still climbing.
A Facebook Page is a public presence similar to a personal profile, but allows fans to “like” the business, brand, celebrity, cause, or organization. Fans receive content updates from the Page on their News Feed, while the business is able to raise brand awareness, deploy and track advertising, collect detailed audience insights, and chat with users who seek customer service.

However, when you use Facebook to publish and share quality content, you extend your reach into the big blue ocean of Facebook’s users.
