    1. Fan pages are indexed by Google; groups are not.
    2. Groups are linked to your personal profile.
    3. Anyone can join a fan page, whereas, the owner of a group can manage who can join and what type of access that member has.

    I'm sure there are more differences. A quick Google search should return good results.

    Not necessarily true (number 3). The Fan Page owner can make it so that only people from certain countries can become a fan.

    I believe if you group has more than 5K members, you don't have the ability to 'message all members' any more, whereas a fanpage will let you do that no matter how many fans you have. To me, that's a pretty big advantage, seeing as how that is probably the best way of communicating to your members.
