Facebook has released today a Graph Search
product, the third pillar of Facebook, News Feed and Timeline being the first two. Facebook Graph Search uses Open Graph, Facebook’s database on all basically anything you can “like.”
Essentially, Facebook Graph Search will allow a user to search for specific queries and return results based on data driven by the user’s friends’ likes and interests. Search results are driven by results that are sorted by social signals. Graph Search will allow a user to launch a query returning results based on social recommendations from their own friends.
