Facebook has announced that it will be opening up the Facebook Graph Search beta to all the account holders who use US English. The roll out is underway and reach more users in the next few weeks.
Users screened for the beta launch will see a new search box on the top of their account.
The Graph Search feature was first launched in January to a small number of beta users. And after six months of monitoring, Facebook is providing the beta access to a larger number of users. Some of the improvements made in the period of six months include:
Speed – The Graph Search will show suggested potential search results even faster
Understanding the query – There will be more ways of asking questions
Relevant Results – Most of the relevant results will be shown first
Interface – It is easier to see and use the search box
Searching through posts and comments are some of the important features, which Graph Search still lacks in. Facebook is working on these features and also planning to roll out the Graph Search for mobile devices.
Users will see an alert in the upper right side of the homepage during the expansion. This will indicate users that Graph Search is rolling out and they should check their share settings.
Here's how the alert message looks like:
The Graph Search will be showing limited results, which will include the content and activity shared with the person doing the search. For example; you will be able to see photos that friends have shared with you in the search results but you will not be able to the same photos, if they aren't posted publicly.Facebook Expands the Graph Search to All US English Users!,
