Location-Based Recommendations in Facebook

For years, word-of-mouth has been one of the most effective ways to discover new products or services.

What a magical time we live in when Facebook lets us ask for location-based recommendations from our online friends!

After all, these recommendations come from people we trust the most – friends and family. It allows us to have honest conversations with people and helps us to separate good services from the bad.

In this post we will show you how to ask for location-based recommendations. No matter where you are in the world, you can always find the best coffee shop in town!

Here’s How to do it

Firstly, create a post and click on the three dots located at the bottom right.

Click Post and wait for your recommendations to come rolling in.
