Difference between, Profile, Page and Group in Facebook
by Graf Marketing  Web
Companies have the choice to create a Business account(facebook page or ads) without having a personal profile attach to it.

You cannot have a personal profile and a separate business account (page) this is a quick way to get banned from Facebook. Facebook disallow the set up of multiple accounts and multiple profiles under a same company or individual.

You can setup your business Facebook Page while keeping your existing profile. Under no circumstance should you be creating separate accounts. Not only is it against Facebook’s terms, but it provides no additional value.

Be very careful before you choose to create a group or a page. Once you decide to be one or the other, you can’t switch. If you change your mind, you’ll need to create a new group or page and ask people to switch.
