Starting from Today, Facebook users situated in the United States will be able to explore the social network’s new feature, Graph Search, reported The New York Times and ABC News. It has been in the beta stage since January, and after four months of testing and improvement, it is now available to the general audience.
Graph Search is a semantic search that answers natural language queries based on the metadata stored on Facebook. An example of a search query could be “Friends who like Rock Music” or “Pubs visited by your friends.”
As of now, the feature is only available to users who use the Facebook website in American English and can be used only on the desktop version of website, Graph Search is not supported on any of the mobile versions. Even if you do happen to be one of the lucky users who are able to use Graph Search, we suggest that you go a little easy on it, since the feature has still not been completely developed and perfected. By the way, you don’t have to worry about your private information, because Graph Search does not include results that violate your privacy settings.
The roll out is gradual, so you might have to wait for some time before you can start using Graph Search. But if you are situated outside the United States or if you do not use Facebook in American English, then you might have to wait for few more weeks before being able to use this feature.
At present, we still don’t know when this feature will be available for other countries and languages, nor do we have any official information about when Graph Search will be supported on Mobile versions.
