Why Facebook "Likes" for Your Apartment Building on Facebook May Suddenly Become Important

In the future, as users of Facebook pile up more and more "likes" for pages that include apartment buildings they have lived in, condo buildings they have lived in, etc., those likes will be searchable.  A Facebook user would be able to type in "what apartments do my friends like in Boston?" and if their friends have liked an apartment building Facebook page it will appear in search results.
