Weekly Marketing Tip
What is a Social Search?
- Both Facebook and Google+ have increased the importance of social search (searching through social media websites).
- Facebook’s “grid” feature is being rolled out which allows users to search with really specific terms (interests, favorite movie, etc.).
- Google+ uses its +1 feature with Google Search to place Google plus posts higher in rankings. Users can click links suggested by someone they know instead of a stranger.
