Today we will address one common question we often receive.
Q:What’s the difference between a Facebook fan and a “like”?
A: They are simply the same. Before the “like” button was invented, Facebook had a button that read “Become a Fan” instead. This was around the start of fan pages. As a result, the term “fans” have always been used to address people who “like” a fan page. A “like” is an action upon a fan page by a Facebook user. Once the Facebook user has “liked” the page, he or she is now a fan.
