Let government officials know they represent you

Facebook introduced Town Hall in March 2017 Facebook

Facebook’s Town Hall feature allows you to turn on a Constituent Badge for your account, which causes an icon to appear near your name when you interact with government officials who represent you. This badge will show up on posts you make that mention these representatives, as well as on comments on their pages or profile posts, and in any direct messages you may send them.

Our guide will show you how to turn on the Constituent Badge.
