"Graph Search is designed to show you the answer and not links to answers," said Zuckerberg.

Facebook’s mission is to make the world more open and connected. The main way we do this is by giving people the tools to map out their relationships with the people and things they care about. We call this map the graph. It’s big and constantly expanding with new people, content and connections. There are already more than a billion people, more than 240 billion photos and more than a trillion connections.

Graph Search and web search are very different. For example, the Web search is designed to take a set of keywords (for example: 'hip hop') and provide the best possible results that match those keywords," Facebook explained in a press release.

"With Graph Search you combine phrases (for example: 'my friends in New York who like Jay-Z') to get that set of people, places, photos or other content that’s been shared on Facebook."

You can actually find what they've shared or their interest. Facebook says Graph Search still in the beta stage, and it focuses on People, location, pictures, and Interest (favorite), will shown about your closest friends, or who you interact with most frequently, that will let you know more about your friends.


That is why Graph Search will appear as a bigger search bar at the top of each page. For example, when you search for something which your best friend love, you will know what are your best friend's favorite thing!

What are you thinking about new feature, Graph Search? For me, it may help the companies to do research about what the world users want from their companies to increase their business profit. And it encourage more friends to share the hobbies or interests with new people. For Bloggers, it can help to inform them to get more information and increase their blog's awareness.

Do you worry about your friends who know everything about you in the Graph Search? You should check your Privacy setting and please watch this video below;
