Facebook’s Recommending Places Feature

What are place recommendations?
Place recommendations let you share your experiences and help your friends discover great places to visit.

To write a recommendation:

Go to the place page that you’d like to recommend.
Find the Recommend This Place box in the right column.
Write a recommendation in the open field, choose an audience to share your recommendation with, and click Recommend.

Who can see my place recommendations?
Before you share a recommendation, you can choose an audience from the dropdown menu next to the Recommend button. Your recommendation will show on your Wall and in the News Feeds of people you choose to share it with.

Can the admin of a place see all the recommendations about that place?
Place admins can only see recommendations that are posted to everyone.

Can I remove the Recommend This Place box from my place?
The Recommend This Place box can’t be removed from place pages. If you’re a page admin, you can control which public recommendations appear on your page. To hide or report a recommendation post, just hover over it and click ‘x’. You can see a full list of public recommendations for your place by clicking the See All link in the Recommendations box.

Please note you can only hide recommendations visible to everyone. Recommendations that are shared with fewer people may not be visible to admins.
