Posts encourage engagement and interaction with your audience where your audience can comment in boxes below the article making the cintent sociable and interactive.
These are more likley to be shared on social media by visitors rather than pages.
Pages describe what the website is about, they give the website structure and organisation.
unlike posts there is not normally a time or date associated with pages.
"A category is one of the pre-defined taxonomies in WordPress."
Categories are used to organise and group together content into different sections and are particularly useful when you have a website that publishes different types of contents on various subjects as you can divide the topics into sections.
