  107. 107. Introducing Graph Search
  108. 108. Discovery via friends • People who share your interests • People who like your photographs • People who live in Manchester and like restaurants in Leeds • Films that your married friends like • Books that my relatives like • Photographs taken in London before 2003
  109. 109. Discovery from strangers • People who like wargaming – and who live in Basildon • People who like eHarmony (a dating site) – And who are married • Pastors who like Ann Summers (an adult store) • People who like Alcoholics Anonymous – And who work for Microsoft – Or who work for Google
  110. 110. In other words • With Graph Search you can look up anything that has been shared with you on Facebook • Other people can find things you have shared with them
  111. 111. Privacy issues • Control who sees your Profile on the About Tab • Review photographs that you have shared or been tagged in • Review your posts with location tags in your activity log
  112. 112. Using Graph Search
  113. 113. However... • It’s surprising what you can actually find out...
  114. 114. But hang on! • Only two married men out of millions of men who are that stupid? • How trustworthy are these results?
  115. 115. Let’s get back on track
  116. 116. Concerns • • • • Should I worry about blurring out faces etc? After all, it IS public data. Isn’t it? Do these people know that it’s public? What responsibility, if any, do I have for or with their data? • At what point do we need worry about linking A + B data to get C, which may be private?
  117. 117. More concerns • Up to what point can we extrapolate? • Does ‘liberal minded’ in a ‘complicated relationship’ mean something that others might think is a bit sleazy? • If we don’t think so, what about other people who will?
  118. 118. Targeting selling • Easy to find all the people who like Argos • Then corrolate to those who also like gardening • Then who live in a particular area • Promote a 20% off offer on lawnmowers! • Is this acceptable? After all, it’s advertising they might actually want!
  119. 119. Getting Graph Search If this is what you’re seeing, then you don’t have access to Graph Search
