Facebook has two types of pages: classic Pages and new Pages experience. Classic Pages are the older version of Pages, while new Pages experience is the newer version. Click here to see if your Page is in the classic or new Page experience.
Though Classic Pages are still functional, Facebook is gradually phasing them out.
The new Pages experience offers more features and functionality than classic Pages.
Understanding the difference between classic Pages and the new Pages experience is crucial for maximizing your Facebook presence.
One of the key differences between classic Pages and new Pages experience is how they connect to groups. In the past, classic Pages could simply join groups. However, new Pages experience must be added as group admins, since they have more control over their presence in groups.
