Today Facebook will be launching its new Facebook Graph Search service which it unveiled earlier this year and has been in its beta development stage since January.
The new Facebook Graph Search service is rolling out to all US Facebook users and will enable users to carry out more advanced searches with metadata stored on Facebook.
US Facebook users will now be able to search for specific questions for example “which of my friends live in New York?” or ” “which of my friends likes Harry Potter”. The new Facebook Graph Search is now also fully integrated with Microsoft’s Bing search engine, allowing users to also see web specific search results if the new Facebook Graph Search service doesn’t provide the specific answer they were looking for.
For more information on the new Facebook Graph Search and to sign up to give it a go jump over to the Facebook Graph Search website for more details or check out the video embed below for a full explanation from Facbook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook explains a little more :
“Want to start a book club or find a gym buddy? Connect with friends who like the same activities—and meet new people, too. With Graph Search you can look up anything shared with you on Facebook, and others can find stuff you’ve shared with them. Each person sees unique results. Graph Search is available now in a very limited beta program for English (US) audiences. “
