OMMA: Marketing Implications of Facebook's Graph Search

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Friday 8th March, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

One of the latest innovations coming out of Facebook is its search graph, which allows users to overlay their Facebook friends with other data, such as interests and location. This union of the social graph and the interest graph may further connect Facebook users with their friends, and help them find new ones, but what is its potential for marketers? Will it enhance targeting, increase ROI or lead to richer consumer insights. or simply be another, but not groundbreaking, tool in the marketer's toolbox on Facebook? This session will put Facebook Graph Search in perspective.
