Facebook recently announced the release of a new feature that allows friends’ recommendations to directly lead customers to businesses. As an ad agency, we’re excited about this new development to drive traffic.
When you post a status requesting recommendation for new restaurants, for example, that person can choose to turn on Recommendations, which tracks your location and includes a map of your location on the post. When friends respond with recommendations, the recommended business will appear on the post’s map. This is great organic publicity, take it from this Facebook advertising agency.
