Why does Facebook display country locations on Page posts?

In an effort to increase accountability and transparency of Pages, Facebook is showing in News Feed the country or region where the person or business that publishes a post is based.
Only people who manage Pages that are based in one country and reach large audiences in another country will be subject to location transparency.
Will Facebook display country location on my Page posts?
If you are an admin for a Page that reaches a large number of people in a country or region other than the one you’re based in, you may be notified that your primary location will be shown on posts you create.
Your primary location is determined by your information and activity on Facebook, including the stated location on your Facebook profile and device and connection information. If we’re not able to confirm your primary location, you’ll be prompted to complete the Page publishing authorization process in order to continue publishing posts in the Page’s voice.
If you spend several weeks in a country, your primary location might update. If this happens, the primary location shown on Page posts will also update.
If you have completed business verification and show a Confirmed Page Owner country in Page Transparency, we will not show individual posting admins’ country locations but may show your Confirmed Page Owner’s country if it is different from where most of your audience is based.
Note: You can submit a request for Facebook to hide your primary country location for special circumstances including risks to personal safety. Businesses can complete business verification to show their Confirmed Page Owner’s country instead of admins’ country locations.
