Facebook Unveils Its Own Social Search Engine

Can't "Facebook" Stuff Yet

Not long ago, Facebook has begun with trialling a new timeline design that brought users' profile back into one column layout. However, that is just a small project they have in plans. The bigger one is a new search engine of sorting and consuming information on the social network.

At the press conference at Menlo Park, Facebook unveils Graph Search, the service which allows users to enter a query on Facebook and get answers based on information within their social network. It gives you an answer to your specific question, not links that might give the answer. Zuckerberg also added that Graph Search is in "very early beta" and should appear as a bigger search bar near the notification icon.

"We are not indexing the web. We are indexing our map of the graph, which is really big and constantly changing. Almost a million new people every day. 240 billion photos. 1 billion people. 1 trillion connections. When Facebook first launched, the main way most people used the site was to browse around, learn about people and make new connections. Graph Search takes us back to our roots and allows people to use the graph to make new connections," said the company.
