Many of us have Facebook Fan pages. But most of us do not have Facebook Place pages. Facebook has launched a new service that ties your “Place” to your Fan page. This also allows you to give your customers rewards, discounts, or other perks when they check into your Place on Facebook.
This new feature (http://www.facebook.com/places) allows mobile Facebook users to set their status at a particular place. By connecting a new Places page with your current Facebook business page, Facebook for iPhone and Facebook touch users can quickly let their friends know that they support your business.
Also, by using another new feature called Facebook Deals (http://www.facebook.com/deals), you can offer customers who “check-in” at your location special offers.
Creative use of Places and Deals can make your location the cool place to be ;)! This is just one more way to ‘Put the Web to Work for You in 2011’.
