The Facebook “Graph Search,” released in January was released to the public on Monday. Searching for people has never been easier… or creepier. Like Google search, the new Facebook search has the ability to plow through seemingly endless data to find exactly what you’re looking for, or in this case, who you are looking for.
Google is very fond of their visualizations, from their special doodles that pay tribute to the history of a day to silly tricks embedded in their search function (type “do a barrel roll” into a search). Another thing the company is fond of is their data. They track search data for a variety of functions such as targeted advertisements or tailored search results.
