FB Graph Search Makes It Easy to Find Like-minded

Zuck-1[1]

Facebook will launch its upgraded search engine Monday (today), The New York Times reports.

Originally announced in January 2013 and dubbed Graph Search, the new search engine lets you search your Facebook social graph for people, places, photos and interests.

With the new search engine, users will be able to ask specific questions, such as “which of my friends live in New York?” Graph Search is also integrated with Microsoft’s Bing, meaning it will offer web search results if it can’t find anything useful in your graph.

According to The New York Times, Graph Search is still far from perfect: it can’t find info in status updates, it can’t leverage data from third-party apps (even Instagram), and it’s not available in Facebook mobile apps.

We’re very interested to see how the Graph Search works in practice at this stage, and we’ll have a detailed rundown when it arrives.

Thank you, TiA
