If your goal is to represent your business, brand or product on Facebook, create a Page. A Page lets you engage with people on Facebook and offers tools to help you manage and track engagement.
If your goal is to share updates with a broader audience from your profile, the place where you’re connected with friends and family, you can turn on professional mode. When you turn on professional mode, anyone on Facebook can follow you to see your public updates in their Feed, even if you're not friends on Facebook. You can choose to post content to a public audience or to your friends only.
Whether you use your profile with professional mode or a Page, you can have an unlimited number of people following you, and you can follow up to 5,000 people. You can have up to 5,000 friends on your profile even in professional mode.
