Called “graph search,” the new service lets users search their social connections for information about people, interests, photos and places. Facebook says that Graph Search functions very differently from web search. While on the web you would search for ‘rock music‘ on Graph Search you could search for ‘My friends in Mumbai who like rock music’ and you will get tailored results of people, photos, events and more on Facebook.
The Graph Search will appear as a bigger search bar at the top of each page. When you search for something, that search not only determines the set of results you get, but also serves as a title for the page. You can edit the title – and in doing so create your own custom view of the content you and your friends have shared on Facebook.
When Facebook first launched, the main way most people used the site was to browse around, learn about people and make new connections. Graph Search allows users to go back to their roots and use the graph to make new connections.
Zuckerberg says the search feature is “privacy aware.” That means users can only search for content that has been shared with them. If you try to search for ‘Images of my friends before 1999’ photographs your friends have shared with you will be available. Users can review their timeline and hide stories they do not want appearing in this search.
Sachin’s first post on Facebook read, “Hello friends, I’ll like to welcome you to my facebook family. As a child I always dreamt of playing cricket for India and I chased my dream of winning the World Cup for 22 years. It wouldn’t have been possible without your support.
“I wanna take this opportunity to thank all of you for having prayed for me and wish well for me. I look forward to sharing my experience with you, join me on my facebook so that we both can share this experience and go through this journey together,” he wrote.

The social network is launching the new tool next week and touts it as a way for businesses to reengage with customers who have already used their services, according to a Facebook spokesperson.
For those who may have privacy concerns over this exchange of personal information, the social network said the process is secure.
What this means is Facebook isn’t giving any of your data away, it’s taking existing numbers and addresses from businesses and letting those businesses use the information to target its ads.
On the flip side, Facebook won’t be gaining any new data from businesses. When advertisers give Facebook your data, it is hashed — a security technique that scrambles your data — before it is fed into the advertising machine. Once the ads are placed, Facebook dumps the hashed data, so that if an advertiser wants to do another ad, the process starts over again.
The new method was available briefly in the Facebook Power Editor, a virtual toolbox used by advertisers to create ads, according to InsideFacebook.
