Facebook Unveils Graph Search: Awesome or Underwhelming?

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg unveiled a new feature for the social networking site at the company's headquarters Tuesday -- and it has to do with searching. Specifically, it's called "Graph Search." And it allows users to search for things (status updates, photos, news articles, etc) that have been shared with them through their friend network. In other words, it creates a sort of archive that users can revisit if they want to remember a certain person, place or thing.

Google Search is available starting Tuesday, in limited release. Do you think it sounds awesome -- or were you expecting something more? And if you've had the opportunity to actually experiment with it, what do you think?

NEWS.CNET.COM reports:
Google killer? Yelp destroyer? Hold your horses, folks. Some pundits predict game-changing things from Graph Search. Others are saying it's no great shakes.

    Data mining is deceptively powerful, and this could add to that. It's extremely possible that some internet nerds somewhere going to do something amazing with this. If not? Well, just don't use it, problem solved

    Sounds more and more like discrimination to me. I am not, and never will be, a member of Facebook. All Facebook is concentrating on now is justifying a few people making BILLIONS of dollars and they need to make more money for their investors. Those of us who are not Facebook members, and there are many of us, have no use for this so-called "search engine". We're automatically blocked by not being a member of the Almighty Facebook. Gosh, I can't wait for people to wake up and have Facebook as meaningful as My Space.
    Good luck suckers. Be prepared to have your privacy invaded in one way or another and get ready for the marketing onslaught. Yes, it has begun, but only in small measures. Members are about to get bombarded.
    There is only ONE priority here: make more billions for a few.

    I mean, I wish they would just stop. They know they are slowly turning into Myspace and are desperately trying to beg the public with their "amazing" new features. If they just stop and let Facebook do its own thing, they would have a better outcome. But no, they just want to keep on begging.

    Fb is a waste of time, dropped it once It became the monopoly of info and profit off others info. Loyal updaters keep value to ads. Will always exist but most by now realize its not worth the time.

    Facebook, just like twitter, only serves to show just how childish and immature most people on the internet are. Truly, do we need a place where we can post all the stuff we do in a day, just so we can make ourselves feel better when someone comments on it. I personally have never used facebook, but a lot of the people i know do, and whenever someone brings it up to me, i tell them i am secure enough in myself that i don't need the worlds approval everytime i do something.

    Your wife does not /actually/ represent everyone who uses facebook or twitter as you seem to be implying by using her to justify your opinion of the entire site and its users.

    Not worthwhile enough for me. I work for my family's business, so i dont need to network. And all the people i talk to, i either do it face to face, in texts, or phone calls.

    You know, there are those ppl. But I've used Facebook to reconnect with long lost friends/family. I've used it to share interesting or inspirational info quickly & easily as well as pics :) Also, bcuz I like certain news, both local and otherwise, I keep up a lot better on issues & weather since I live a couple hours away from my local news station. On occasion, a kid runs away. I get my teens and we quickly spread the alert through the community. They get home quick, lol!! The trick is I use Facebook. I don't let it use me. I don't fill out profiles. If you need to know, you do. I don't share my location, a stalker's dream. Who else would give a rat's ass if I just checked in at Jiffy Lube? Lol!! And that's what I heard was the new thing abt it -- now you can stand outside a club and scan to see if any of your FB friends are in there!! How creepy is that?!
