Facebook groups can be a huge time-waster or they can be informative and educational.There is less drama involved in Facebook pages which are different than groups. A Facebook page helps users connect with a brand or company in ways that don't work in groups. There is generally less arguing and misbehaving since the owner of the page is the only person posting photos or updates.

eBay sellers of vintage items can benefit by liking the following pages, which provide helpful information on all things vintage.
