It's totally up to you to decide to put it as a post or a page. I would put it as a page though.

One important difference between them is that Pages are hierarchycal and Posts chronological. You can study each in the Codex to better decide:

what about seo?post have seo parts inside – Yosef Jul 20 '12 at 12:48
Seo parts? Like what? I'm not an expert in SEO, but having a good <title> tag, using heading tags when required and good content is enough to get the love from search engines. – RRikesh Jul 20 '12 at 12:58
can you put in page facebook follow + twitter + google plus on the page like in the post with some plugin or should be done manually? – Yosef Jul 20 '12 at 13:35
@Yosef, if you have specific doubts about SEO, open another Question. In summary, you'll control it with the head tags and caring about your content, as rrikesh says. Anyway, go see what a SEO master has to say about WordPress anatomy: yoast.com/wordpress-theme-anatomy, and don't forget the Codex is Your Friend :) . . . . Also, this is not a support forum, please read the FAQ. – brasofilo Jul 20 '12 at 13:41
