Not the fabled Facebook Phone but a search tool announced today from Mark Zuckerberg


Well turns out the Facebook Announcement today  was not the fabled Facebook Phone but a New Search Tool called Graph Search.

A new Facebook tool announced Tuesday offers a long-awaited internal search function as the social networking giant tries to attract more users and advertisers.

The Graph Search function allows users to search terms like “photos my friends took in New York City” or “people I know in India.” Results will be drawn from information already shared with that user on Facebook.

For now, Graph Search focuses on four areas: people, photos, places and interests. If it doesn’t have the answers, it will display results from Bing, Microsoft’s web search engine.

The new search feature is designed to promote the discovery of new friends on the network, Facebook chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg said.

“Facebook’s mission is to make the world more open and connected. The main way we do this is by giving people the tools to map out their relationships with people and things they care about,”

Facebook stocks have risen slightly after investors were invited to this announcement but after the announcement will they hold, rise or fall right back down? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
