Facebook users are spread all over the world discussing and interacting about topics that concern them most. Many users create fanpages on specific (sensitive) topics to initiate discussion on that same. While a given topic may be fine in specific country, it can be considered bad (should not be talked about) about in other countries. To over come this problem, you can use and configure “Country Restrictions” feature for your fanpage on Facebook.
Meaning of ‘Country Restrictions’ for Facebook fanpage
You can use either of two settings: Hide or Visible. Once you type name of one or more countries, you can either select option to hide or show your Facebook fanpage to users from those countries. For example: If you only want your fanpage to be visible to users in USA, just type ‘United States’ and select the “Only show this page to viewers in these countries” option.
