Facebook Promoted Posts Can Now Target Fan Countries

Looking for a way to better target promoted posts? Facebook has the answer. The company recently updated the service, allowing brands to target promoted posts by country.

Now if your company has a big following in Japan, Brazil, Ireland, or any other nation, you can target promoted posts to their tastes, Facebook announced:

We have released an update to promoted posts to target spend to the countries where most of your fans reside by default. You can still control targeting on your own to ensure that only the most relevant people see your posts in their news feed.

Just make sure to not annoy your fans (or their friends) when utilizing the promoted posts feature.
