Pages that you manage may be in the classic Pages experience or new Pages experience. The new Pages experience isn’t available for all Pages yet.
Your Page's categories appear below your Page's name in search and can help people find what they're looking for. Different features may be available based on the category you choose for your Page.
Try to be specific when choosing a category. For example, choose “Italian Restaurant” instead of “Restaurant.” There's no limit to the number of times that you can edit the category of your Page.
Classic Pages
