A Check-in Button for Your Facebook Page
Localley is a tool that broadens the functionality of Facebook Places by letting you check-in to places using a date and time in the future. It also allows you to view your check-in history on a Google Map, visualise your friends' latest check-ins and view the people who are checked in around you.
Localley has now released checkintab for Facebook pages. If your business or venue has a Facebook account you can use checkintab to allow users to check-in directly from your Facebook page.
Once you add checkintab to your Facebook account a 'check-in now!' button is added to the right hand menu of your page. When visitors click on the button they can check-in to your business and venue without having to leave your Facebook page.
Your visitors can even create a future check-in and inform their friends that they will be at your venue at a specific time. This is a great way to get users to share and promote your business with their Facebook friends.
