Oneupweb : Update on Facebook Places
I recently wrote a post about Facebook places, the new check-in option available to iPhone users. At that time this new feature was not available in my area. I’m pleased to say that is no longer the case, as you can see below. Three minutes prior to posting this blog, I checked into Oneupweb.
But what do Facebook Places mean for business? Currently, if you are an official representative of a business, you can apply to “take ownership” of the Place where your business is located. To do so, you first have to locate your Place (here’s Oneupweb’s Place). Once you’ve done that, you just follow the link that says “Is this your business?” Facebook asks for serious documentation, meaning you must provide them with Articles of Certificate of Incorporation, Certificate of Formation, Local Business License, or Better Business Bureau Accreditation.
Once you claim your Place, you can advertise it using Facebook PPC ads. You can also manage your company’s address, contact info., hours of business, profile pic, admins and more.
What do you think of Facebook Places? Will you be claiming your company’s Place? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
