Yes, it is confusing. On the other hand, it can be used for good.
Especially that Community folks vs rest. When I share important milestones
on FB, I do it only in the community folks group. There's not need
to confuse users, I really want to reach different target audience.

On the other hand, with more generic posts, I always struggle where
to post... And for people looking for Fedora presence on FB it can
be really confusing which one they should pick up. But as you know,
I usually like more options with a good explanation. Maybe changing
"about" messages for all these groups/pages could help.
