Facebook Introduced Graph Search – A Social Search Engine

Facebook officially introduced the Personalized Social Search Engine called Graph Search. This Graph Search is introduced on 15th January 2013 by CEO Mark Zuckerberg at a press event at the company’s new campus.

Facebook Graph Search is not a Web search engine. Mark Zuckerberg said that this is the third pillars of facebook where first and second are the News Feed and Timeline. Zuckerberg clearly explained the differences between Facebook Graph Search and the services provided by Google and Bing.

Facebook Graph Search

This Graph Search is completely built on Facebook’s Social Graph database which is used to make users network useful as tools to find Places which they have visited, Photo’s Shared, friends around a locations, restaurants recommended and many more. Here Graph is a big database which contains 1 billion people, 240 billion photos and 1 trillion Connections.

Here is an example where Zuckerberg tested with his own queries like People who like cycling and are from my home town, Restaurants in London my friends have been to, Photos of My friends, Photos i like, Photos before 1990, Music my friends like, Cities my family visited and etc.

In simple words Graph Search is a database where you can search it according to your query. Facebook stated that this is the new way to help users to make new connection with people. Zuckerberg said that it may take many years to index the whole social database.

Coming to point of privacy Zuckerberg stated that they are taking user privacy seriously with Graph Search. And he said that every searchable content with this new service has its own audience and it can only be searched which is been shared with a user.

This Graph Search included in developing it for mobile platforms, and they are making it available in multiple languages. Graph search is available in “limited beta” version where you can Sign up and find out when you can start using Graph Search.

  10. The search is great to help us find more places and to connect more with people on Facebook. There is always a lot of negativity I find when Facebook make updates. I think most of this is due to the fact that a lot of people dont like change and that not all Facebook users are advanced computer users.. Everyone parents and Grandparents on Facebook these days.

    Updates made by Facebook can only be a good thing the way I see it and this is an example of an upgrade to the User Experience IMHO.

  11. I had no idea about this new update of facebook until i read your post. Its sounds really interesting. Its good that facebook is coming up with new updates as i honestly think, it became little bit boring. but with this feature they seem to bring up some fire. first thing ill do is now to check it :)

    thanks for the post. keep updating us.

  12. I saw Facebooks new update Graph search while I was searching for an old friend from high school. I didn’t know that the search tool has this much variety. I don’t like it so much when Facebook changes their basic things. While searching for a friend I found it little bit complicated to get the results. Its sent me the web and sort of things. It took me time until i got use to it. But to be honest I did enjoy it after I understood how to use it. Your article gave me more in depth information. Thank you for sharing.

  13. Great article. Its good that Facebook is bringing new updates to their system. It was getting a little bit boring. I really enjoy using the graph search its giving a better perspective. thanks for sharing.
