Facebook Graph Search- A Revolutionized Search Engine Tool
On Tuesday, social media giant Facebook plunged into the
market of online search, generating a viable threat for giant like
Google and Yelp. “Search Graph” is the name of the service
which is on its way to your personal Facebook account to help
you search content that you and your friends like the most.
Let’s Get Familiar With Facebook's Graph Search
Like other search engines instead of providing referral
links containing solutions, it will directly display
information on the wall. Some web forecasters believe
it as a small step towards challenging the dominancy
of Google. But, it would be too early to predict as
results displayed will be confined to the information
that is present on the social network itself.
This, of course, is a giant leap towards making
Facebook a more lucrative advertising platform as
compared to Google. So, if you are Facebook users or
advertisers, here are some points you need to know?
Is it going to harm my privacy settings?
Not at all, Facebook has emphasized
that this cool new feature will not all
make your private life go public. But, as
cautionary step, please go and verify
your privacy settings as it is the right
time to hide absolutely everything
associated with your personal life. Visit
“Activity Log” for core privacy setting.
Sounds good, But how to use it?
It is extremely easy to use. Search is
based in “Natural Language
Processing”, so just type what you
want in plain or simple English. As
soon as you type query in the search
box, a drop-down menu will suggest
kinds of results you may be interested
in based on your search terms such as
people, places, products, games,
songs and more.
What type of content will be part of
Everything, including your photos,
likes and comments, your post
shares and whatever you’ve made
publicly visible. Graph search by
Facebook takes into account your
privacy settings; hence content
under your privacy scanning will not
be displayed at all. Private content
will be unsearchable.
Interesting, Is it made available?
If we believe the sources they say,
it’s going to see the day light for both
beta signups and the general users,
but have to wait for that. Sooner or
later, it will be made available for
everyone. It will be at your service
only in U.S. English.
Is there a way to escape from this
Truly speaking “No”. As with
earlier Facebook updates such
as the new profile, Facebook
Timeline and lots more, you’re
going get it in the end. So, you
cannot opt out of it.
In Graph Search, What’s the Value of
Your likes and share for people,
pages, and places will make them
popular among your connections and
boost them rank higher. Advertisers
and business owners need to make
sure that their brand pages and fan
base are dynamic and up to date.
It is again a very clever step by
Facebook to attract small business
owners and force them to take a serious
look over their Facebook content
update. This opportunity can help them
rank at Facebook’s Graph Search.
Along with Google optimization,
marketers now have to pay equal
attention on Facebook Optimization
