Facebook has launched a new site offering online marketing advice for small businesses.
Facebook for Business offers a series of tips and advice for small firms that want to make the most of the social network.
It provides help with the basics like setting up a page, as well as longer-term tasks like building a community.
Advice is also available on Facebook’s new location-based services, including tips for businesses that want to allow customers to ‘check in’.
Small firms can also use the Facebook Platform to build apps, and further integrate Facebook’s tools with their existing website.
A Facebook spokesperson said: “Facebook allows small businesses to create rich social experiences, build lasting relationships and amplify the most powerful type of marketing – word of mouth.”
Facebook for Business is widely seen as part of the social networking giant’s response to the newly launched Google+.
