      In most cases it's best to create both.

      If you're looking to build a community, I'd recommend starting a group. They take much more time and dedication to maintain if you want to to be successful, engaged and growing but you'll build a much closer relationship with your community.

      Facebook pages are better used as a broadcasting tool. Most people who find you will go to your page first. You can use it to direct them to your website or group.

        Well said. It's just a matter of getting the right point of view. Thanks buddy.

    A Facebook page is good to get a following first that you can later divert to your group.
    Unless you already have a product and a huge following, a group would remain isolated. You might get some traffic but it does not mean that people will visit or use your website.

    On a side note, as an advice, make sure that your website and Facebook page/group has flawless English as grammatical or such mistakes drive many users away.

    Page is more formal for a main platform compared to a group.
    But a group is also a great way to create a community for people that has mutual interest

    It depends on the type of content you are going to use to generate traffic.

    1. If you are going create blogs, videos and infographics to generate traffic, then create a Facebook page and share them in your page. Remember, you can boost your posts from your page but not with groups.
    2. If you are going to create engaging content, then focus on groups.

    I believe it's the best to have a public fanpage and a private group for the vip members or just a special content you want to share with the most loyal fans. This will make sure that your content reach as many of your costumers as possible, because often fanpage doesn't let you organicly reach all of the people who liked your page, so group should help you to reach even more of your fans.

    Hi there. I would create both. Use the Page for all kinds of communications and offers, but use your group page to connect with people privately with specific queries about travel issues, or with folks who have take a common journey, or gone to a common travel destination, or are about to.

    Like others I will also suggest you create both. Facebook page will give more exposure to your content first and you can attract more target fans which later you convert into group members to increase engagement.

    Facebook Group is better for community where you can get engage with people, grow network relevant to your niche. Where as Facebook page is for build brand loyalty, increase web traffic and much more.

    Groups are great for building communities and relationships within niche and pages are great for building followers, promoting things or keeping traffic going on your website - including SEO. Create both.

    From my own experience, I don't get much traffic from Facebook Group. For Facebook Page, I able to get the targetted traffic I want through facebook post boosting features.

    I am in the process of developing both. I started with a page and I am now at a stage where it has nearly three thousand likes. I have noticed that there are similar groups with a good community sense so I am going to make a group in the future based around the market I am in where anybody can post (although it will be moderated by myself) but I will have the benefit of being able to post whatever I want.

    As previous posters have said, a page is like the face of your business on Facebook and a group is more of a community. The use of both means your business can be involved in these digital communities.

    Creation of Facebook Page & Facebook Group will both help you to generate traffic or increasing the brand value of your business website but they have individual importance. Facebook page will help you to promote your business only when you invite your friends to like it whereas Facebook group will help you to promote your business among many people who are added in your group and that can help you to reach immense number of people all over the world.

    Both are the best for getting good and positive results.
    You can use group for attracting them online and page for getting traffic offline. It will be the best way to use both of these.

      read all the other ones, and was about to type this, but you beat me to it,
      make a page, share the post on your page with groups related to niche
      link back to group / page etc

    Creating both will be better. However, group is to help you crate a relationship with your audience.

    Facebook pages are good if you can advertise it very much easily or using bots.
    Facebook groups are good if you can get active members of groups for getting positive results.

    Both facebook page and group are capable of generating traffic, it depends on the way you use this platform.
    Facebook page are public and help you get new prospects that finally can join your groups.

      Page will be a great way for getting the word out about your website and information on what you have to offer. It's a good way to build a good following and great for paid traffic. Group is a great way to build a community about the topic of your interest. It's a great way to get some traffic as well but you have to build a good size group to see any results. I get great traffic and results just posting good content in groups already istablished in my niche.

    in my opinion, the facebook group gets more traffic and faster than the facebook page
    because you have to build content, many content for page. if content is not attractive, your effort is out.
    but if you can build two, that is very wonderful

    Well both the methods are useful to attract targeted traffic, But Facebook page has more potential to work well as compare to Facebook Groups. Sharing posts on to many FB groups can seriously affect your account. So, while sharing posts on Groups you must read the rules first.

    A page is good but you can't get live conversation like in groups, if you are popular in groups then your page will get more fans, just according to me....

    I personally think a group will be better. If you can
    1. Create the facebook group page.
    2.Send loads of Facegroup real human members via purchasing huge volume to the group page so that you rank on your search term on facebook. (You can communicate with me about this)
    3. Invite those on your facebook profile also.

    I think you should have both because both of them are good to get traffic for your site but you always need to keep them updated and add good and relevant material and articles.

    Group is much better. Reach is higher in the group. I'm owner of both fanpages and groups, and my fanpages has reach about 3-8%, but groups 20-40%. So if you have fanpage with 1K fans and group with 1K members, you will have 7-15 times more traffic from group. Big disadvantage is that you cannot use FB ads to promote your group, so it is more hard to grow.

    Anyway , If you want to get traffic in free , You can get traffic with Facebook Groups and use Facebook Poster Program for post
    If you want to get traffic paid , You can monetize your facebook page with facebook ads and start to get traffic with your facebook page

    You should definitely create both a fan page AND a group!

    The only thing with fan pages however, is that only 1-2% of your fans will see anything you post. So if you have 100 fans, only 1 or 2 of them will actually see your newest post.

    With a group, everyone will see your stuff! However you need to be somewhat careful as a TON of spammers blow up groups with useless crap nobody wants…just saying!

    I hope that helps and good luck
