Once you’re verified, you’ll be able to reach more customers through the use of the recommendations feature. Posting photos about your business and the use of tags will also be available for customers. Don’t worry, the old reviews will still be there! The new system will provide the recommendations options integrated within the reviews, so all the previous reviews will be listed in the same section; Reviews/Recommendations. It’s been shown that an increasing number of people are using this platform. They’re likely to be more influenced as Facebook shows them the recommendations by their closest friends. On top of that, you’re score will appear in places that customers are likely to look in order to make their decisions, such as maps. To find out more information about this new upgrade, check out the recommendations they have made. You can read about the upgrade and watch a video on how to activate the review tab if you haven’t already done so.
