Facebook Announces New “Graph Search” Feature

web


Facebook announced it is launching a new search engine for the social network called “Graph Search.”


Mark Zuckerberg, while announcing the feature at an event Tuesday, said the social network is launching a different kind of search engine – one that will run inside of Facebook allowing you to search the materials your friends have shared.


Zuckerberg showed that Graph Search will be able to deliver answers to questions like, “Who are my friends that live in San Francisco?”


Graph Search will focus on people, photos, places and interests and feature a search bar allowing users to ask questions.  


The new feature may raise some privacy concerns but Facebook said users will only be able to see materials they already have access to.


Facebook is rolling Graph Search out slowly and those interested in being one of the first to try it can sign up on a waiting list here.
