New York: The popularity and easy accessibility of Facebook has led nearly 45 million small businesses worldwide to use Facebook pages as their digital storefronts. Facebook-logo

“Our mission is to help connect everyone in the world. Businesses often depend on connecting,” wired.com reported Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg as saying.

“That’s where Facebook comes in. If you can set up a Facebook profile, you can set up a Page,” she told the gathering at an event hosted at Facebook’s headquarters in Silicon Valley.

Pages are for businesses, brands and organisations to share their stories and connect with people.

“Like profiles, you can customise Pages by publishing stories, hosting events, adding apps and more. People who like your Page and their friends can get updates in News Feed,” Facebook said in a blog post.

You can create and manage a Page from your personal account.

Pages can now feature industry-specific sections.

It was also said, pages will now prominently feature  ‘call’, ‘message’, or ‘contact business directly’ option for customer

Facebook wants its Pages to act as everyone’s digital mall, a place where any small business can create a Page for end users.

Small businesses will now offer “call-to-action” buttons on mobile ages, encouraging consumers to “Call Now,” “Send Message” and “Contact Us.”

An anonymous political campaign on Facebook has reached nearly 10 million voters, asking them via advertisements to oppose British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal, the media reported on Saturday.

According to The Guardian, it was discovered by the digital campaign group 89up, which shared the details with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) panel into fake news.

“In adverts micro-targeted to individual constituencies, voters are exhorted to tell your local MP to bin Chequers,” said the report.

“This advertising is designed to specifically influence MPs,” 89up said.

All that is known about the campaign is what can be found on its website, Twitter and Facebook accounts.

“Going by the name Mainstream Network, the group writes and publishes news stories on its website with an almost exclusively pro-Brexit slant, shared on its social media accounts,” the report added.

“Over the last couple of weeks, I received a flood of about 50 emails – some quite abusive – urging me to ‘chuck Chequers’ and vote for out-and-out Brexit,” Labour MP Paul Farrelly was quoted as saying

The news comes at a time when Facebook is reeling under a couple of massive data breaches including the Cambridge Analytica scandal that impacted 87 million users earlier this year.

Facebook says it has set a goal of bringing a transparency feature for political ads — now available in the US and Brazil — to the UK and India by March 2019.

Facebook has also set up a War Room to reduce the spread of potentially harmful content.
