Facebook has just announced Graph Search, which is a new an innovative way for users to find information within Facebook. According to Facebook they currently host more than 240 billion photos with more than a trillion connections.
According to Facebook:
Graph Search will appear as a bigger search bar at the top of each page. When you search for something, that search not only determines the set of results you get, but also serves as a title for the page. You can edit the title – and in doing so create your own custom view of the content you and your friends have shared on Facebook.
Graph Search, will first be launched as a limited preview for U.S. audiences only, and it will allow users to discover connections between other members of the site and quickly identify which friends have been to certain places, “liked” specific topics or appeared in certain photos.
For those worried about privacy, Facebook says that if you want something to remain private and have marked it as such then no one will find it using the new search. “It makes finding new things much easier, but you can only see what you could already view elsewhere on Facebook,” says the company.
