Likes:
The end all and be all of Facebook - not really, but really.  It's a thumbs up, an endorsement, an equivalent of a friend on your profile page.  A Like is to Facebook what a follower is to Twitter.

Profile:
A profile is a personal account, which you will need to get to use Facebook and/or set up your Business Page.  It is currently against Facebook's Terms and Conditions to use a personal account to represent your business.  That being said, you can always start your own separate profile page.

Page: 
A Business Page (amongst other types of Pages) are where you publish your information, posts, images and more.  It's a profile, but for a business.

Posts:
Like a post on a Blog, its a publish comment, image, or article that you want to share with the public.

Group: 
Groups are tricky.  Basically, they were a page-equivalent, created for an organisation or business to promote itself and its events.  For example, a Health Club could start a group and then members would join and post their feelings about the new reno, prices, or just randoms things, and interact with each other.
