    Fascism involved the government increasing its influence and control over businesses, while allowing those businesses to remain privately owned and its profits to go to private individuals.

    There are some elements which overlapped with socialist systems of the time, but the economic power structure didn't change. In socialist systems, the profits are nationalized so the government is involved with micromanagement. In fascism, profits remain private.

    There are similarities between the structure of these governments as well, but also differences. There are major differences between the philosophies of these systems.
    You are arguing about the configuration of the deck chairs on the Titanic. The major difference is one of degree. In both systems, economic planning is conducted centrally, the means of production is controlled by the government and prices, wages and all other transaction mechanisms are dictated by fiat. The difference between a system that allows a titular owner of a company to act as the government's agent (and take the blame for the failures of its policies) and a system that replaces him with a bureaucrat is purely cosmetic. The real measurement is the degree of economic liberty in a system, and both systems seek to reduce it to zero.
