Facebook Testing New Way for Customers to Find Local Businesses Near Them

Facebook Local Businesses near me

Facebook is testing a more advanced way for customers to find products and services near them. Local businesses who have a Facebook page will appear in the search results, along with their ratings and contact information. Facebook will also highlight what businesses are known for, such as a particular meal or customer service. The search results will be displayed on a map with different options listed next to each other.

TechCrunch wrote a great article about the new feature here.
