Learn How To Monitor Facebook Check-Ins In 5 Minutes


At Causely, we're big believers in the value of a Facebook check-in. And in case you've missed the check-in train, we're here to tell you that having people check in at your business is one of best ways to market your business. Basically, Facebook check-ins are worth-of-mouth marketing gone wild. Just look at the marketing benefits.

How to Monitor Facebook Check-Ins

But how do you keep track of your check-ins? And which customers are checking in? Fortunately, Facebook makes it easy to find out.

How to Monitor Facebook Check-Ins

All you do is follow these four steps and you'll be monitoring check-ins like a champ.

STEP 1 - Log In 

The first step is easy: log in to Facebook as the Admin of the page you'd like notifications about.

STEP 4 - Options

You're on fire! Next, you'll see some options for communication. Just choose the option that works best for you. We use the "get one notification every 12-24 hours on all activity" so that we don't get bogged down by notifications (we're really popular). Pick whatever works for you.

This setting will not only send you notifications about check-ins, but also all activity on your page (likes, comments, shares, etc.).
