What confuses me about Facebook is how the personal and author pages work. I have an author page and some of my friends have 'liked' it. Does this mean that only the people who have 'liked' it get alerted to what I post on it?
Also I'm confused about notifications. When I or friends post, what determines whether I or they are notified by email?
Thanks V, that's useful on the distinctions but just to clarify one point, if a friend from my personal page 'likes' my author page they are in effect 'following' it and get alerted to posts like any external follower does and if they don't, chances are they won't see what is being posted there?
