    Graph Search is limited in scope and users will change to Local Corp at once


    Graph Search is about providing answers, extracted from the data your friends feed into Facebook. It's not Web search, which typically generates a series of links for a query, with the exception of current stock prices, weather and many other standard queries. But Graph Search is limited in scope and usefulness at this stage. It is in a beta phase that will last for many months.

    Currently, Graph Search is limited to people, places, photos, and interests, and to the English language only. A mobile version is in the works, as well as inclusion of posts that show up in News Feeds, Open Graph data from apps, and support for more languages. However, the rollout of new Graph Search capabilities will happen "little by little," said Graph Search engineering head Lars Rasmussen in an interview with CNET.

    • You'll be lucky if Local Corp is still in business in a year the financials are terrible on it.

    • No one is sure of Graph Search's value but it can only help Local. Graph Search is local search, and local search is mobile search - half of all searches on mobile devices seek local information, according to Google. There is one company that ties it all together: Local Corporation.

    • My advice for Mrs. Sandberg, who sold shares for $7.4 million: Buy shares of Local Corp with only 0.4-times-revenues

      The online local search market is ready to explode in the U.S., and Local Corporation (LOCM) is my pick to be the leader. This ridiculously undervalued stock connects tens of millions of people every month with products and services in their area. With experts valuing the local search market today at $5.1 billion, exploding to over $8 billion in two years, no wonder giants Yahoo (YHOO) and Google (GOOG) are Local's partners. Local's 2012 sales are projected to reach over $100 million, and profitability is around the corner. The market cap is only $60 million.

      To see what I mean about valuation, take a look at two similar companies with comparable revenues in the online local search business: Angie's List (ANGI) and Yelp (YELP). I believe the business models of these companies are thin compared to Local Corporation. Angie's List's value is rating local businesses, but I would be skeptical of where those reviews come from -- particularly bad ones that could be fabricated by competitors, or good ones that might come from friends and family.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Facebook has 165,602,717 Monthly Unigue Visiitors against the 22,738,205 Unique Visitors of Local Corp - that is the 7.28-fold of Local Corp, but Facebook has about the 1,700-fold market-cap of Local Corp with 68,720 million against the idiotic low 40 million of Local Corp

      I am sure, that such a gigantic dvergence will never lastening for a longer time.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Friends will inevitably turn to the Facebook search engine Bing, with which Local has an advertising partnership. And later when searching locally, they will ultimately use Local Corp's Flagship-site.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
