Facebook and The New Nearby Feature

December 20, 2012

Actually this is not a new feature – just a relaunch and an improvement of something that has been there for a while.

Facebook has collected a ton of data over time on where users have checked-in.

It’s no secret that Facebook will now want to leverage that data.

Eventually we will end up with a local discovery tool that has its roots in “Social.”

What to do?

Be sure your business address and category are up to date.

Encourage check-ins.

Increase your Like base via Facebook Marketing to up your chances for “buzz.”

And… Pay attention to this as Facebook Nearby evolves.
