    Brand & Product Pages Make Up 39% of Facebook Pages

    Written by | @

    Think Facebook is just a tool for your kids in college to organize parties?

    Think again.

    HubSpot's new  State of Facebook for Business report , released today, shows that brand- and product-focused pages represent 39% of all pages. The brand/product category is the largest single category of Facebook pages. Pages for local organizations and public figures each represent about 30% of the total Facebook pages.

    Facebook - Categorization

    The State of the Facebook for Business report was compiled from data collected by  Facebook Grader , a free tool from HubSpot that helps businesses assess the marketing effectiveness of their Facebook pages.

    Other key findings of the report include: 

    • About half of all Facebook pages have less than 500 fans.
    • Only 0.3% of Facebook pages have more than one million fans.
    • In aggregate, musicians and local businesses have the most fans.
    • Although they have fewer overall pages, Italy and the U.K. have more fans on a per-page basis than U.S. pages.

    The report data encompasses 120,000 Facebook pages and thousands of companies.
