Staying informed of changes to Facebook rules and regulations will help businesses from taking a hit in sales

Mankato, MN, -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- SEOwhat.com, a national leader in internet marketing, web design, and search optimization company, that specializes in both on-page and off-page optimization is recommending that online retailers stay abreast of the continuing and constant changes to Facebook rules and regulations to ensure sales are not affected by non-compliance. Staying up-to-date of the adjustments to the policies Facebook enforces to the places pages is a necessary part of business these days. Social media marketing is a key part of success for many internet retailers.

The most recent changes to Facebook Pages may affect business negatively if they do not comply. Review the Page Management to make sure the business name accurately reflects the Page content. The name cannot have symbols or all capitals letters, except for acronyms. The name needs to be simply just the name of the business. Name Changes and Migrations cannot lead to an unintended connection, nor can they result in re-categorizing a Page, this may result in a loss of “friends” when a business would like to combine pages.

One of the biggest changes that will affect businesses on Facebook is to the covers. They are a popular place for promotions and Facebook has tightened up these restrictions, they can no longer include price or purchase information. Contact information cannot be included or any references to actions such as, “Like” or“Share”. Promotions must be administered with Apps on Facebook.com. These rules and regulations can be confusing to the business owner and they change frequently. SEOwhat.com has experts in social media services to help ensure the businesses page on Facebook complies with these changes and keeps the client up to date with changes that are coming. Noncompliance can result in the page being rejected or removed from Facebook.
