Why should you tag products? 🏷️
Meta has recently made some changes to the Meta Shops experience for stores located in the EU and UK. The main change is that storefronts are no longer shown directly on your Instagram and Facebook page through a "View store" button.
Shoppers can still see your products by clicking on the “Shop photo” button from your posts. They will also be able to view other products you are stocking (“More from this shop”) based on personalised recommendations.
Catalog products are still viewable when tagged in posts and used in ads, and as such it’s now more important to utilise these features as a retailer on Facebook and Instagram.
You can read more about the Meta Commerce experience update in our blog.
