Facebook testing easier management of multiple location pages

inf3

For business owners who manage a small chain, navigating those multiple location pages can be a bit of a pain. Which location should be posted as the main one? But now, it looks like Facebook is trying to figure out a way to solve this problem.

Inside Facebook reader Enrico Gualandi, the Founder and Digital Strategist of Social Factor, pointed out that some chain business owners who manage a place-based page can showcase other locations on their timeline.

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed that this is something Facebook is testing, but not ready to roll out yet.

Gualandi noticed this by going to his page’s settings, then seeing an option for locations, above the activity log.

The admin can then enter in specialized information for each location, such as hours or subcategories. If there’s an existing page that the page owner just wants to bring under that umbrella, they can choose that page.
