In case you haven’t heard yet, Facebook has recently rolled out some new features for its users. In this post, we will do our best to catch you up with what is new with the social media juggernaut.
Earlier this week, Facebook announced the launch of Graph Search, it’s upgraded search engine. The search engine was first announced by Facebook back in January of 2013. Graph Search aims to let you search your Facebook social graph for people, places, photos and interests. With the new search engine, users will be able to ask specific questions, such as “which of my friends live in San Diego?” The search is now intelligent enough to rank your friends based on how much interaction you’ve had — so that closer friends will appear higher up the results list. Graph Search is also integrated with Microsoft’s Bing, meaning it will offer web search results if it can’t find anything useful in your graph. Facebook also claims the new search engine is faster, easier to see and use, and it picks relevant results better than the current search engine.
Mobile users shouldn’t get too excited just yet. While the mobile version of the Graph Search is still not available, Facebook claims it’s working to get it ready as well. We are still just testing out what Facebook’s Graph Search has in store. In the meantime, experiment with Graph Search yourself and let us know what you think of the new search engine.
