Facebook Pages Getting Shop, Services Sections

Facebook added two new sections to its pages: a shop section (in Southeast Asia and other high-growth and emerging markets) and a services section.

The social network said in an email to SocialTimes that the shop section is aimed at allowing businesses to prominently display the products they are selling, enabling users to discover, browse and message pages to purchase those products.

Facebook added that the top 10 countries where the shop section is used on pages are:

  1. Thailand
  2. Brazil
  3. Vietnam
  4. Indonesia
  5. Malaysia
  6. Mexico
  7. Philippines

  9. Argentina
  10. Taiwan

The services section is currently available to all professional services pages, with all pages getting access “in the coming weeks.”

Facebook said the services section allows businesses such as plumbing companies and spas to showcase the services they offer on their pages, enabling users to more easily fill their needs.
