Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive officer of the social network Facebook, unveiled today, January 15, the newest service that they’ve been working on – Graph Search. The announcement was made at the company’s headquarters at Menlo Park, California.
First rumored as a Facebook phone, Graph Search is the social giant’s first offering this 2013. This feature allows users to query on things that will utilize the data within their Facebook network. This is like a personalized search engine with filters such as “place type,” “liked by,” and “visited by friends”.
Graph Search will appear as a search bar at the top of Facebook page. Currently, this feature is in beta (available to a limited number of users) and is in English language. This will then be expanded to other languages as the company slowly make it available for everyone.
“We’ll start rolling it out very slowly. We’re looking forward to getting into more people hands over coming weeks and months,” Zuckerberg stated at the press event.
