Facebook Announces Graph Search

By - Source: Facebook | B 8 comments

Mark Zuckerberg debuts new search tool for social network.

Facebook's anticipated event has seen the company announce Graph Search, a new search tool for the social network giant.

The search tool utilizes specific filters to help users navigate through billions of photos, members and connections contained on the website. Facebook will still offer its traditional search tool; however, Graph Search requires you to ask it exactly what you're looking for.

The beta version of Graph Search (sign-up here) has now been been released, which predominately focuses on four areas: people, photos, places and interests. One search example showcased at Facebook's launch event was "people named Chris who are friends of Lars and went to Stanford".

Speculation prior to the event was widespread: so much so, in fact, that it propelled the stock share prices of Facebook above $30, which is a feat that hasn't been achieved since its IPO last year.

    Another tool i probably won't use. It'd appreciate it more if they kill all those stupid ads that are starting to clutter my home page.
