Lincoln, Lincolnshire (PRWEB UK) 24 February 2013
Following quickly on the heels of its latest announcement about its new and powerful Graph Search feature Facebook were facing more questions about the levels of its privacy controls with concerns being raised from certain parties that this would allow unsavory people to potentially prey on the young and innocent.
Facebook’s Graph Search is designed as a powerful social media search tool that can have many great uses for businesses such as potentially finding people that like the products or services that you offer within your area. But the concerns were what if you weren’t totally above board and wanted to use the service to find youngsters under the age of 17 for example who lived within the vicinity.
