As a Facebook page admin, you may want to use labels on your own, but you must understand that the labels should only be relevant to the content and page context. This update is in the test phase, and Facebook may choose to add more labels in the coming days.

We welcome Facebook labels because they will help our readers or visitors on Facebook understand the article's content in their news feed without doing anything extra.
