Facebook new tool - Graph Search

tri-forceFacebook introduced new search tool on Tuesday called Graph Search, "a new way to navigate Facebook connections and make them more useful." Graph Search will appear as a bigger search bar at the top of each page. When you search for something, that search not only determines the set of results you get, but also serves as a title for the page, Facebook said. You can edit the title – and in doing so create your own custom view of the content you and your friends have shared on Facebook. "This is one of the coolest things we've done in awhile," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said. "It's the kind of product we love to build at Facebook: It's for a big technology problem and big social problem." Go to www.facebook.com/graphsearch to get on the waitlist if you like this new search tool.
