First of all, "what is a Facebook Post?"
A Facebook post or "status update" is a message or comment that can be illustrated with a picture or other media that is posted on a Facebook page or in a Facebook group.
A page is a bit like an advert. The admin (Pauline in our case) can post info about the Club, events, news etc. People can choose to ‘Like’ or ‘Follow’ the page – if they ‘Like’ it, it shows up on their own profile and newsfeed but if they just ‘Follow’, they see updates from that page without it appearing as one of their likes on their profile. A page is PUBLIC. People can search for it and see content posted to that page without liking or following it themselves and, if users interact with posts, it can show in their friend’s newsfeeds as well.
REMEMBER, PAGES AND THEIR COMMENTS ARE PUBLIC!

By contrast, Facebook Groups are a more private affair. Unless you join the group you won't see any of its content.
Our group is "Closed" which means that only people who've joined the group can see the content. People have to request to join the group and the admin (again Pauline in our case) will then 'approve' them (or not!). You can also leave the group if you like.
Any member of the group can post content so, if you are heading off somewhere and would like others to join you then tell us about it in the group. You can post pictures of your trips out and comment on other people's posts.
Groups are used for all sorts of things, from special interests to local buying and selling, and even local news and events. Posts in Groups are prioritised in individual’s newsfeeds, but unlike Pages, if a user interacts with a Group post, it won’t share this in their friend’s newsfeeds. Members can choose whether to receive notifications for everything posted in the group, just highlights or to not have notifications at all.
