  12. 12. January 15th 2013 Facebook announces ‘Graph Search’
  13. 13. “Web search is designed to take any open-ended query and give you links that might have answers.” What is ‘Graph Search’? “Graph Search is designed to take a precise query and give you an answer, rather than links that might provide the answer.”
  14. 14. In Graph Search you combine phrases (for example: "my friends in New York who like Jay-Z") to get that set of people, places, photos or other content that's been shared on Facebook. What is ‘Graph Search’? Facebook Graph Search is completely personalized. One gets unique results for a search of “friends who Like Star Wars and Harry Potter.” Then, “If anyone else does this search they get a completely different set of results. Even if someone had the same set of friends as me, the results would be different [because we have different relationships with our friends].”

  20. 20. Graph Search is Facebook's first step to create something meaningful for its users with the piles of data (interest, location, friends, likes etc.) it has collected over years. “ Graph Search won’t just change the way we use Facebook. It could also pull users away from other services like Yelp and Foursquare, and create huge ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES for Facebook. But that all depends on the social network convincing us that when we have a question to answer, you don’t just have to Google it. Now you can Facebook it” -Tech Crunch

We recommend you search for and view real-time public conversations and test strategies to drive those conversations using hashtags.  • Hashtags do not impact your distribution or engagement in News Feed on either desktop or mobile. We recommend you continue to focus on your existing campaigns to drive your most important business objectives. - FACEBOOK Facebook to Marketers
