How to target wall posts on your Facebook fan page

Facebook just released a new feature for fan pages which enables page admins to target their wall posts by Country, City and Language. Here is how you do it.

Go to your fan page, click on “Custom” menu below the place where you type your updates. Choose your target parameters from Country, City or Language. Click on Ok and share the update with your targeted users.

What does this mean for you?

Facebook posted a note on their wall post informing users about this new feature. Now this is exciting new for small and medium sized business users on facebook as it enables to get in touch with their clients and customers within specific geographic regions. Assuming that you are running a beauty salon or spa business and want to offer a discount coupon to your clients from a specific region, this feature becomes handy. Also while sharing content that is not meant for English speaking fans, you can target your post by language so that some of your other fans don’t think you are talking Latin to them.
