B2B Social Network Communities (LinkedIn vs. Facebook Groups)

Over the past decade, brands have found that profile pages and/or business (fan) pages on their social networking sites have peaked in terms of audience reach and engagement. This has led to considerable investments made in running B2B social network communities where group members feel more involved in idea sharing or supporting causes. Some would argue that social network business pages by themselves have earned a reputation for being too promotional. Consequently, social networking communities/groups tend to rely more on public forums and less on brand sites when interacting with their cohorts.
Leading the pack of these communities are LinkedIn Groups and Facebook Groups. Common to both are forums that allow members to share content or engage in dialog much like those conducted on our Canvas discussion boards. Among the advantages provided to those running these groups include an ability to showcase thought leadership. Group leaders can also manage messaging and content marketing attention that often benefits their own brand exposure.
To understand the comparative functionality, features and benefits provided by LinkedIn Groups and Facebook Groups, I have parked a series of articles in Pinterest (Links to an external site.). You may be surprised to find that Facebook shows signs of outperforming LinkedIn, the darling of B2B.
