Set Up a Location

  • Facebook lists search results based on the searchers location.
  • The Location data on a business Facebook page associates your business with a specific location.
  • If your company operates from only one location, a Location page will isolate your business from those with similar names.
  • If your business operates from multiple locations, Location pages allow you to gather reviews and ratings for each store.

Check for and Claim Unofficial Business Facebook Pages

A Page may exist for your business even if you didn’t create it.

As an example - when someone checks into a place that doesn't have a Page, an unmanaged Page is created to represent the location. A Page may also be generated from a Wikipedia article.
