How to Target Facebook Audience by a Specific Country or CityPin

Do you want to promote your Facebook posts to the people in a specific country, region, or city?

Post targeting is a powerful feature available for all Facebook pages to put their posts in front of the right audience. Its advanced version is available for Facebook ads users with more controls to better optimize the audience for maximum reach and traffic. But now we’ll tell you about a page feature which you can use freely and promote the posts better than before.

There is no use of showing your content to the wrong people. Before creating Facebook posts, refine your audience by their geographical location who are more likely to read, share or comment on them. Filtering helps you to improve the user engagements, reach, and traffic to the site.

The limit can be changed based on your tastes and requirements. These kinds of radius wise limits are useful if you create posts that exclusively target people in a specific area.

Save and your audience filter is successfully applied to the post you are going to publish. Schedule or publish the content as usual.

That’s all.
