Economy Briefs: Taking aim at Google, Facebook adds search
Question of the Day
Called “graph search,” the service unveiled Tuesday lets users quickly sift through their social connections for information about people, interests, photos and places. It will help users who, for instance, want to scroll through all the photos their friends have taken in Paris or search for the favorite TV shows of all their friends who happen to be doctors.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg stressed that “graph search” is different from an all-purpose search engine, but if the new search tool works the way Facebook envisions, users should be able to find information they want to see on their own instead of relying on the social network’s formulas to pick which posts and pictures to display in their feed.
