Pages can have a Hierarchy. Most of the time WordPress pages are used for independent pages but sometimes they can relate to each other.

For example, a large organization may have multiple pages of content (No single about page) for their organization. Using WordPress, you can easily nest one page under another. How? Create your pages such as About, Mission, History, etc and easily set About page as a parent page to another.

Pages do not interact much with users. They only provide some static pieces of content. Therefore, they do not use social sharing buttons or comments along with them.
