New Facebook Feature- Place Tips

Facebook added a new feature to its repertoire recently with the introduction of Place Tips.

Place Tips show information such as pictures, reviews, check-ins and other information from friends who have recently been to the same business and posted about it.

Place Tips become available when a person is using Facebook in a business that has Facebook’s Bluetooth Beacon. That’s right, the businesses need to request the FREE Bluetooth Beacon to utilize this feature and you can do so here.  So we’ve compiled a list to clear up what this means for businesses.

  • Able to connect with people who do not currently like them on Like BoardFacebook
  • Reviews from customers that the user actually knows can be a huge purchasing influence
  • Create Brand loyalty and engage users

Think of this new feature as a personalized dashboard showing the activity of Facebook friends at your business.

The beacon itself uses cellular networks, Wi-Fi and GPS to determine the location of the user and is just a one way communication to a phone. So for businesses like you, you have nothing to lose by requesting your beacon and getting your customers to share helpful information to their friends and family.
