Facebook pages will start showing their countries

Facebook pages will start showing countries where they’re managed

Facebook recently sent out an email message to inform people who manage Facebook pages about a new change. The email message is titled “Notice for People who Manage Facebook Pages” and if you received it, it’s likely that you have a role managing a Facebook page such as an admin, editor, moderator, advertiser, analyst, or job manager.

The email message says that people visiting Facebook pages will start seeing additional information, including the primary country locations where Facebook pages are managed.

The countries that will be shown to visitors include primary country locations of people who have roles on existing Facebook pages. People who have roles may include agencies, advertisers, social media marketers or anyone that a page has worked with, regardless of the person’s level of activity on the Facebook page.

The email message says that the addition of a Facebook page’s country is part of Facebook’s continued effort to increase the transparency of Facebook pages. I personally think it’s a great idea that can help many people who use the social network determine if a page is legitimate and safe. There are many scams and hoaxes produced by Facebook pages and this change can hinder suspicion of potential victims.

In addition, Facebook says that it’s good practice to keep your Facebook page management up-to-date. To manage your role with Facebook pages go here; You can remove yourself from any Facebook page you no longer actively manage.

Furthermore, if you are an admin of a Facebook page you can check all of the people who have roles with your Facebook page in the “Page Roles” section of your Settings on desktop.
