Let's take one example of each:

  1. https://www.facebook.com/TimHieuVeChienTranhVietNamVietNamWar
  2. https://www.facebook.com/groups/GST.HCM.HCMUT.2014/

How can a normal Facebook user tell which one is a Facebook Page and which one is a Facebook Group?

I don't now that this is conclusive (eg applies in general) but the top right corner of the first link in the OP has:

WA69161 first example

and the second:

WA69161 second example

so it seems the Create Page or Join Group may be the indication required.


The URL starts with https://www.facebook.com/groups/

You'll note in your two examples, you have one with the groups part of the URL and one without.

Also, once you go to the URL and view it, a page will offer you a like button, whereas a group will offer you a join button.
