Freshwire’s Shawn Amos Talks Facebook Graph Search [Video]
Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

Social networking juggernaut Facebook unveiled its newest feature, Graph Search, on Tuesday at a press conference at its Menlo Park, California headquarters. Although the search feature it still in beta, rolling out slowly to users who request access, it has the potential to rival other social search and directory services such as Foursquare and Yelp.

Graph Search allows members to easily discover people, places, photos and other members’ interests.  How does it work? The tool searches by phrases and lets users find only content shared with them on Facebook.

See what Freshwire CEO Shawn Amos has to say about the search feature in the latest episode of “60 Seconds of Social Media.”
