Example of a business using Facebook locations.

Facebook describes Facebook locations like this.

Facebook locations are a way to manage pages for all your locations in one place. Each store will be tied to one main Facebook Page.

Anyone who has a store with multiple locations can now tie their Facebook Pages together under one main page.

For those of you who run a business with multiple locations, this is great news. This is because this feature was previously only available to large companies like Starbucks and McDonald’s.

Now, when someone visits your main Facebook Page, they will be able to see that you have other locations as well that they can engage with.
