As of today, Graph Search has been launched to everyone using Facebook in US English. Graph Search appears as a larger search bar at the top of the page.
Graph Search makes it easier to 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 city,” “People from my hometown,” “Friends of friends who live nearby and like playing tennis”
Revisit your favorite photos or photos you missed:
“Photos I like,” “Photos of my family,” “Photos of my friends taken in San Francisco”
Discover restaurants and places recommended by others:
“Hotels in Seattle visited by my friends”, “Cafes in Paris, France, visited by people who live in Paris, France,” “Restaurants in New York liked by graduates of the Culinary Institute of America”
Look for interesting activities to explore:
“Movies my friends like,” “Books my friends of friends have read,” “Music liked by people who like the music that I like”
As a reminder, we introduced new privacy controls back in December and announced that we would be retiring the old “who can look up my timeline by name?” setting in the coming months. Now that people have had an opportunity to explore those tools, we are starting to retire this setting for the small percentage of people that use it.
As we continue to work on other improvements to Graph Search, such as searching for posts, comments and mobile, we encourage everyone to use your privacy shortcuts and Activity Log to review and adjust whom you have shared with, including status updates.
