    This has to result in a lot more spam. Creating Facebook pages is pretty much, free to cheap. But there hasn’t been much point.

    I’ve always been sceptical about social search (based on likes or shares) because a) its so easy to spam – e.g. buy 100k likes on Fiverr (and facebook haven’t got a handle on fake likes) and b) because you can buy your way up legitimately.

    1. Expect Keyword stuffing SocialSEO advice

    2. Expect more and more pages to be created for the same business – like Google Places

    3. Expect Pages promoting other pages for $$$

    In reading the article and thinking about SEO for graph search it has caused me to also ponder search phrases. The article eludes to search phrases like “italian
    restaurants that my friends have been to” and “hair
    salons that my friends like”, so what does this say about Facebook’s direction for search?
    Gone are the days of two and three word search phrases to find relevant information?
    Are search engines not providing relevant search results, thus forcing the searcher to get more granular?
    I’m not sure but I think this in itself may be a rather large signal about the future of search.

    SEO in facebook search is really amazing way to attract potential costumers provided that you add fans and friend related to your industry.

    I wonder how privacy settings will impact the social graph. For instance, if I only let a certain group of friends see the business pages I’ve liked will that information show up when any one of my friends searches or just those that I’ve given the okay. My other thought is–will people use Facebook like this? I know that personally I never bother with the Facebook search feature because it is pretty useless. Facebook will have to convince users to give this a try and keep at it.

    Finally something new and exciting from facebook. Ever since they have gone public on the stock exchange, they have been working hard and keeping secrets. I can’t wait for more exciting news from facebook. Who thinks they are the NEXT Google?

    I agree with you, and you’ve voiced what is I think my biggest hesitation about Graph Search. Not to mention the fact that people tend to ‘like’ pages almost randomly, and that I’m still not convinced that anyone wants to use Facebook for discovery.

    Time will tell, of course. And it’s not like we aren’t all going to jump on it!

    I wonder how much of our information will they access for such results and what algorithm will they use, facebook today know more about us than anyone else. Of course facebook also announced that before it goes widely available all users will be informed to check their privacy settings…time wll show

    Good tips, I am having a ball with the Facebook Graph Search. I first got it January 17 and have been doing a lot of silly searches to get a good feel of the functionality. I think people should consider changing their pages to places because even if you don’t have an address to use you can always just list city and state and be found that way.

    Good Tool for Facebook Search, it will now promote your facebook page, community, group, events as per your given information locally.

    Thanks Mark

    To be honest, I do not trust my friends random post giving me advice about what to eat or what to do. Leave alone other potential searches like historical facts or political hot topics…. in this sense Google will always dominate because of its “somewhat impartiality”

    Great post Matt!! also if you own a place page then it is time to increase the check-ins. In case if you don’t have physical location it is better not to turn your business into a local one. Also there is a new important advantage the facebook graph search serves which is you can easily be found by the search of friends of friends. Remember that the more people who check in into your place, the more likely your rand in the search result will increase when people filter by their friends.
