Is there any difference in a plain text link on a page, and a hyperlink SEO wise?

So I am making an HTML sitemap for my users, mostly to see how it affects SEO, and to see if it would be beneficial visitor-wise.

Is there any difference between the two types of links, and how search engines see them?

Plain text:


<a href="">Facebook Page</a>

Are these links seen differently by search engines such as Google? Which one is better for this situation?
