Like: “Like” has several different meanings in relationship to Facebook. First, like represents action you can take, for example you can LIKE a post or LIKE a Facebook page of a company and become a fan. Second, you can click the LIKE ICON on a website that would either show that you liked an item that company is offering or you liked a page of that company.

Here is an example of Tory Burch site’s LIKE button utilized to indicate that you like a specific item http://www.toryburch.com/Watersnake-Venice-Sandal/22128528,default,pd.html?dwvar_22128528_color=036&start=11&cgid=shoes-heels

Page: Facebook allows for personal accounts and business accounts. Business accounts are called pages. Pages do not require a friend request, you can simply click the LIKE button and you will automatically become a fan of a page.

You can create Facebook offers directly from your Facebook page. A person can claim that offer. When they claim the Offer, your post will be shared on their Facebook wall and it will be visible to other Facebook users there are friends with. It is a great way to spread the word about your company and invite people to your web commerce site.
