How Can Businesses Prepare For Facebook Graph Search?
MediaBistro.com/All Facebook – by JUSTIN LAFFERTY

Facebook’s graph search, which is slowly being rolled out to more people, has major implications for brands. It could change the way that companies advertise not only on Facebook, but in their brick-and-mortar stores, too. Mark Simmons, co-founder and managing partner of Mixed Digital, spoke with AllFacebook about how companies can get their pages ready for graph search — taking both a digital and tangible approach.

As more businesses big and small join Facebook, we may see more of a search-engine-optimization movement happen on the social network. Simmons told AllFacebook that the launch of graph search will motivate pages to ensure that they’ve got their contact information and biographies completely filled out. Many pages still don’t have phone numbers or “about me” sections written up.

Simmons added that more businesses will put as much information about themselves on the pages as possible, making sure their fans have places that are easy to check into.
