Live Blog: The Facebook Graph Search Press Conference

As you can see in the live blogging coverage below, Facebook has announced Facebook Graph Search, an upgrade to its largely-ignored search function. It relies heavily on “likes” and other connections that users make inside Facebook’s “graph.”

We’ve written an initial article about it on our sister site, Search Engine Land, and will have a deeper look at Facebook Graph Search there later today. You can also scroll down for the complete live blog coverage from the Facebook press event.

Facebook Graph Search Announcement Live Blog Recap

I’m very excited to try the ScribbleLive live blogging platform for the first time. The company is making it available to us for free. When things get going, you’ll see my latest posts appear at the top. I should also be able to pull in tweets I do from the event as well as insert photos. When all is done, the posts will reorder themselves so you can easily read starting from the beginning of the event to the end.

    Thanks Danny for this

    I knew it! Facebook search! They’re finally tackling personalized/localized search based off of their giant database!

    This is the solution to fake online reviews – reviews from people you know, kind of know, and will know to distrust if they’re wrong (but at least you can tell them that their opinion sucks afterwards)… you know, the by-product of connecting people. Awesome!

    from the slides, it looks like the facebook ad-targeting engine, restricted to your own social network and modified to show you exactly which users are selected by your filtering choices.

  • Shane Atkins

    This awesome thanks

    A lot of private data I would think. I wonder the number of users that are gonna change their personal privacy settings as a result. I think Facebook is on to something, but wonder what it will really look like when it’s in full swing.

  • Sage Lewis

    Facebook SEO. That looks like the new frontier.

    I don’t understand why Facebook is after the privacy of its users? Why can’t it just keep quite and let us use our profiles the way we want it too? Every other day I hear something about Facebook that ruins our privacy. Not cool!
