It contains all the items you would expect from a communication application but it also has some other features that are useful, others that are witty and entertaining. You can send gifs and stickers and you are also able to send your location.

Here recently Facebook made a change, Facebook made some small changes to their communication app. The latest one is you can now give locations of where you are and/or where are going to be. This is where your business’ being listed in Facebook Places can be of a big help. It can lead to discovery of your business and allow for your customers to be able to better show where your establishment is located.

It is, in a way, a directory of places or a business listing. There are businesses that are listed, that you may of never known were around you.  This goes for your potential customers, and if used in conjunction with Facebook Beacon you can use this popular social network to your favor without even spending any money for advertising.

How do you check?

If you have done all that and you want to see your business listing in person just open Facebook messenger and choose someone you want to text. At the bottom you will see different options one of those options will be three dots. Select the three dots and what will show up at the top will be Locations.
