Facebook Released Advanced Graph Search Feature for all US Users Today

Starting from today, Facebook introduces its Graph Search to all US citizens. This is a sophisticated and stylish tool which will allow greater accuracy in finding data on Facebook. Suppose you were to type in “A picture of my dog, Rex, in 2004”. Now in the past you had to wade through a ton of useless data to recover that one photograph. Yet this new fine-tuned instrument lets you find micro-information the search for which has been adjusted down to the last details. Although there are still a few adjustments that remain to be made, on the whole it is a marvelous service. It will serve the United States of America and its people well, as stated so clearly in the ABC News. The facility has been available in beta since Monday.

The user base may carry out search operations on metadata any time it wants and with relative ease. In the beginning, this service will arrive in the US only. Then it will spread to American English users’ sites on Facebook. It hasn’t been divulged when the rest of the world will get the amenity. Nor has it been said when a mobile version will be ready for activation. In the coming weeks, the whole set up will be test driven and any faults and foibles will be removed as per feedback from Facebook fans.

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has said that this unique tool is a far cry from Internet search engines. While a normal search engine returns all the related answers to a query, Graph Search will give the exact answer only and nothing else. This is a remarkable improvement over past models which seem slipshod when compared to it. Of course, many people tried the Google Whack technique with this tool too and got some humorous results. It is not a panacea for all ills, of course. Even such an advanced gadget installed on Facebook has its limitations. There are privacy issues that have turned up too. They will have to be dealt with down the road.

Mark Zuckerberg had already made an announcement about this tool some time back. And now it is finally here in all its fame and glory. The specificity of the search results remains its strong suite. And it will be utilized by millions in the US and then billions throughout the world.
