Before you start, you’ll need a smartphone. At the moment, you can’t create a place just online.
Here’s how to get your place listed in Facebook.
Step 1: Physically Locate Yourself Near Your Business
To add your business, you’ll need to be close to it, preferably in your store or next to it.
Take out your phone and access the Facebook application.
Step 2: Click “Places”
Click on “Places,” located in the center of the Facebook springboard.
Step 3: Click “Check In”
Click “Check In” in the upper right hand corner.
Step 4: Click “Find or Add a Place”
When you click “Check In,” Facebook will display a list of all nearby places. Instead of clicking on one of these locations, search for the name of your business.
When Facebook doesn’t find it, you’ll be prompted to add your business.
Click on “Add [your business name].”
Step 5: Add Your Business
Enter your business name and an optional description. Click “Add” in the upper right when fininshed.
Click on “Add” when prompted.
When your place is added successfully, you’ll see this screen:
Congratulations! You’ve just added your local business to Facebook Places.
