With the recent updates to the Facebook app for mobile devices, it has become increasingly important to establish a Facebook Page for your place of business. This guide will walk you through how to claim your Facebook Place. This must be done through mobile device.
Claim a Facebook Place (Facebook Places for Brand Marketers)
Places is significantly impacting the entire ecosystem of Facebook users and businesses. More than 150 million of Facebook’s users access Facebook on mobile devices, and many already have phones with the ability to access Places. Users have already created Places pages for many real world locations, including your business.
Strategies for Creative Use of Facebook Places
Facebook’s long-awaited entrance into the location space, Places, brings a new dimension to the tools advertisers and marketers have at their disposal on the social network.
Places, which builds on momentum from earlier forerunners in the space like Foursquare, Gowalla, and Loopt, allows Facebook users to temporarily share their location via check-ins. Users can share where they are at any given moment with friends by “checking in” to a venue. Facebook’s twist is that friends can tag each other at Places, like they do in photos, which brings in an extra viral element compared to other location-based services.
