Facebook has just introduced a new native Facbeook Tab: Services (or Servizi in Italian).
It is a tab present only on Local Pages that have included “Business Services” in their categories (” Business Services ” in Italian).
This new Tab allows you to list all the services offered , including title, description, image and price.
But let’s go in order:
How to activate the Tab Services?
If your Place Page is categorized Business Services and you don’t already see the Tab, try adding “services” at the bottom of the url of your page: www.facebook.com/USERNAME/services
How to configure the services of the Tab Services?
Click on “Add a Service” and fill in the fields:
- Name (40 characters)
- Price (optional)
- Description (200 characters, if you enter a URL it will not be clickable)
- Photo (optional, 140 × 140 px output)
Then click on “Save”.
By clicking on “Introduce Your Services” you can enter a very short introduction (40 characters).
Only at the end of the procedure, when you are convinced and satisfied with your work, you can make the Tab public with the button at the bottom left “Published”.
“Done is better than perfect” as usual …
Unfortunately, we have to report a number of bugs, which we hope will be fixed as soon as possible:
- Entering Services from Business Manager does not work
- Canceling a Service only works on Pages not linked to Business Manager
- Introduction insertion works only on Pages not linked to Business Manager
On the other hand, what is really missing is the possibility to order services: at the moment the last entered is the first displayed.
Results and conclusions
Although there is currently no possibility of connecting a website to each service, we believe that this new feature is very interesting, especially for small local businesses that could, for example, assume that they do not have a website (even if we are far from it). from recommending it).
Facebook is certainly focusing a lot on it since, once the Tab is configured and published, the last 3 Services are also shown in the Timeline, above the posts.
The only oddity is that, on the other hand, there is still no trace of this new Tab from Mobile.
In the Services Tab, on the other hand, all the Services are shown, at the moment without numerical limitations.
