Hi Chris,

Thank you so much for your nice words, I appreciate that :)

it gives me personally satisfaction and reason to keep doing what I do. So
> a well meant thank you!
Same here :D

Thanks for voting :)

I can explain more for sure so everyone will understand even better. I will
try to explain the feature of each page, etc and what the difference
between each :) < is the Official
Page on Facebook - You need to Like the Page if you want to post, etc. < is the official Group
on Facebook - You need to join so that you can post and one of the admins
of the group must approve the request first. With Pages, you don't have to
approve that. << this is the
official page on Google+

The above 3 channels are the official communication channels on Facebook
and Google+ for Lubuntu. I do have control over the Group but NEVER for the
page :( and I'm waiting this issue to be resolved soon. I also have access
to the Google+ Page because it was me who made it.

There is also a Twitter Page (!/lubuntudesktop) and I
didn't know that until few days back. I don't have access to that page and
as per Mario:

Actually the twitter was configured in the way, that we can post to twitter

I personally don't have any account on Twitter and I don't even use it. I'd
say let's focus on Facebook because it has more users than other Social

*Some comparison between Facebook Pages and Facebook Groups:*

1- With Pages, you can post some Updates/News and People Start to Comment
if they like and if they don't, they will see your posts and be informed
and be up to date. Anyone who Liked the page will see that.
With Groups, it's more like a chatting and discussion place. Someone starts
a discussion and the ball keep rolling.

2- With Pages, if you need to find an old post say 6 months ago, you need
to keep looking for it. With Group, even if your post is 6 months old, once
you post a comment on that post, it jumps and be on the top as the first
post. Same like Forum, the first thread on the top is the thread that has
the most recent post.
However, facebook is changing their layout again and pages will go timeline
so I think finding an old post is not going to be so hard but still old
posts stay behind.

3- With Pages, you can prevent users to post on your wall and they can just
comment on your post. With Groups, no point to do this because it's a
discussion place.

I hope that is clear enough for everyone :)

Please, if something is not clear, I'll be more than glad to re-explain
again :)
