Facebook has rolled out its new Locations app for Regal Entertainment Group’s main Page. This new Page tab allows visitors to find a local store on a map that then routes them to the Facebook Page for that location.
Apps like this allow those who manage large, connected Facebook Pages to launch and update features across all the Pages at the same time. Until now, each Page, both corporate and individual branch, had to be updated individually.
This is part of a new initiative from Facebook to tie corporate Pages to the Pages of the individual stores. The Locations app is the first app to do this and right now is only available to the Regal theater chain. Facebook plans to roll this, and more, out to all companies with many local branches.
