A New Way to Search on Facebook is Coming – Personalised to You!.. Day 11

Retirement Facebook

Over the next few weeks, people using Facebook in UK English will be able to use Graph Search. Graph Search appears as a larger search bar at the top of the page, and makes it easier to find content that has been shared with you and make new connections.  You can continue to search for friends and Pages by name, or use simple phrases to find something specific across people, photos, places, interests, and more.

For example, find old friends or meet new people who share your interests: “My friends who live in my town,” “Friends of friends who like tennis”

Revisit your favourite photos or photos you missed: “Photos I have liked,” “Photos of my family,” “Photos of my friends taken in Brighton”

Discover restaurants and places recommended by others: “Hotels in London visited by my friends”, “Restaurants in Paris, France, visited by people who live in Paris, France,”

Explore new interests: “Books my friends of friends have read,” “People who like music that I like”

Retirement Facebook-London-Engineering-Office

Graph Search for UK English is one of several global products developed in part at Facebook’s London engineering office, which opened just over a year ago – and it’s a huge feat. Not only does Graph Search make sense of information about millions of users, but searches are different for everyone and change all the time. So if you’re looking for holiday ideas using “photos of my friends in Spain” – it’ll update all the time as more of your friends share their trip photos.

We’re really excited about Graph Search, but we’re still just getting started – roll out in UK English will be gradual, meaning we can take on board feedback to improve it as we go along. So let us know what you think!

Remember, in Graph Search you can only see content that has been shared with you, including posts shared publicly by people you are not friends with. Use privacy shortcuts and Activity Log to review who can see the things you share.

Use privacy shortcuts (http://newsroom.fb.com/ImageLibrary/detail.aspx?MediaDetailsID=4294) and Activity Log (https://www.facebook.com/me?sk=allactivity) to review who can see the things you share.
