Like all of us, I get a lot of emails. I try to answer them all even though general inquiries don’t get answered very fast.
Sometimes, however, an email question gives me an idea for a post – like this one.
I was asked if it was possible to send updates to Facebook fans based on their location. Since I am unable to store a lot of new information in my brain anymore, I tested it out and determined that, yes, it can be done.
So, here’s how to do it.
- Go to your Fan Page
- Click on Edit Page
- On the right click on the link that says Send an Update – it’s in the Promote Your Page section.
- Check the box that says Target this Update. You can select a country and then target by State/Region and City.
I wish more people would use this. I think it’s silly when I get updates for things occuring in Kansas and California – it’s highly unlikely I’ll be attending ;-) Take a couple of extra minutes and target the updates to those who will be most interested.
