    At that point, to connect to your WiFi, they can either enter a password or check in on Facebook. Anissa says nearly every one of their patients checks in.
    I'm confused. How do you log in to someone's WiFi from Facebook? Or do you mean they check into Facebook from the office using the office WiFi?

    One of the concerns I might have here is customers leaving a review for a business while using that business's wifi. Perhaps on FB it is not a concern but I thought it was a concern for Google?

    Otherwise I love the idea and will share with a client :-)

    @djbaxter - this is the feature: https://www.facebook.com/business/a/.../businessowner Basically to use the free wifi you have to check-in to the business Facebook page.

    @digitaldar - as far as I know Facebook doesn't have a review filter like Yelp or Google. Since this is a feature run by Facebook themselves, I don't think they would remove the reviews.

    Facebook has a feature that requires people to check in if logging into someone's wifi? I think I read that wrong. The logistics of that would be impressive. It would show a real concern to help local businesses (as well as themselves of course).

    Could you clarify, Joy?

    Joshua,

    You can read more about it here: https://www.facebook.com/help/126760650808045

    I've visited businesses who have it before. Basically when you connect to their wifi, it sends you to a login page (kinda like you get at airports or Starbucks) and the person has to check-in to be able to utilize the free wifi.

    Wow, had no idea they implemented this for businesses! That's pretty awesome.
