By Mayur Kisani
In January, Facebook started rolling out a highly anticipated beta version of a new search feature, Graph Search. It was initially thought to be Facebook's answer to traditional search engines like Google, but has turned out to be a much more specific and better search functionality within Facebook.

Fox Business

In fact, a recent survey by online marketing firm Lightspeed Research found that 67 percent of consumers wouldn't buy a product if it had as few as three negative reviews. But bad reviews are only one side of the consumer-driven conversation happening online. For every gripe, there's a whole slew of likes, tweets and blog posts pointing consumers towards praiseworthy products and services. This is great news for consumers, but for businesses, it means knowing what's passing through the digital grapevine.
