Facebook Graph Search is an advanced take on what Google had introduced to pull relevant information from within the user’s online social circles. Purposed to enhance the user’s social search experience by delivering more personalized results, the Graph Search is of great benefit for those who are looking to stay updated about their social media connections and social media happenings. This latest Facebook feature is programmed to keep you updated on four fronts: people, interests, photos and places.
If you are looking to visit the restaurant which your close friends have been to, Facebook Graph Search can help you find it out easily. If you google for a good restaurant, you will get search results on those restaurants whose SEO has been done well. In contrast to Google, Facebook Search will return results based on what your Facebook friends recommend. Facebook search will filter results based on some variables such as likes and comments on restaurants’ fan pages.
Searching for the photos and videos shared by your friends on Facebook will become easier with Facebook Graph Search. Google does not facilitate such specific or personal searches, despite its consistent evolution. Only long-tail search queries can help you out. Instead of visiting your friend’s profile and exploring it for a specific picture album, you can easily get at it using the upcoming search feature of Facebook. After all time matters and Facebook values the time of its users.
