Facebook Graph Search Overview

Last week Facebook launched a new search tool called Graph Search. Our social@Ogilvy team have created the below easy to understand guide to help you find out how it works, and what opportunities this bring for brands. Enjoy.

Facebook: Global Pages Guide

Facebook recently launched a new structure for global brands, using a new feature called Facebook Global Pages. This new feature allows for one global Facebook page to track insights and metrics across all of its pages, and thereby, have the opportunity to understand fan behaviour in one single place for each page. Also as part of this change, Facebook offers users a better localized experience, while letting the brand maintain its global presence. Users will automatically be redirected to the most relevant brand page, based on their geographic location, and brands will be able to link to the main global page with a single vanity URL.
The presentation below is from Social@Ogilvy and gives an overview on the changes, and how brands can effectively leverage the new changes.


Burberry’s Social Story

Wonderful video showing how the Luxury brand Burberry has been successfully evolving into a digital / social / mobile first retail company. The clip lets Angela Ahrendts, their CEO tell the story of how Burberry has been fundamentally changing the way they do business.

Great to see other companies first learning and evolving the digital culture internally, then translating those learnings into the public, is a smart way to go.

Excuse the salesforce.com punt, but great video none the less.
