In short, Graph Search is a search tool created by Facebook and Microsoft to search for very specific things. Like, for example, as Mark Zuckerberg put it, “Who are my friends in San Francisco?”. Graph Search allows you to find the very specific things in an area where your friends reside, in such a way that it makes it easy to find places or things that your friends like or are in the vicinity of. It’s a discovery engine, powered by Bing results, basically. It’s also privacy-aware, with Facebook applying 10% of its computing power towards the concealment of your privacy.
Graph Search will start rolling out “very slowly” in beta today to a select few users, in only English. In the coming months Graph Search will expand from just people, photos, places, and interests to music listens and wall posts. Press release after the break; get whitelisted at the source link.
