Essentially, Groups are more like a private club or networking group. Pages are meant to be promoting a certain product/service/brand/celebrity.
Here’s a table drew up that displays some of the differences:
PurposeRepresent particular person or brandCollaborative environment for group of people
RestrictionsPublic or admin-onlyPublic, closed (visible but must request to be added) or secret (cannot be found by search or any other means)
Add peopleNo (can suggest page)Yes – only those who are Facebook friends of Group members
Facebook Notifications for fans/membersOnly if someone comments on/likes the post you have made or commented on.Default: FB notifications (and potentially email) for all new wall posts (by anyone) – can be changed.
