Facebook unveils new search feature

  • Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a new search feature on Tuesday.

    Called Graph Search, Zuckerberg said the tool was not a web search but would search Facebook's database, enabling users to find information about people, photos, places and interests.

    Until now, Facebook users have not been allowed to search for friends who live in a certain city or like a particular movie. The new feature will now enable users to do so.

    Zuckerberg added the feature was "privacy aware" as users will only be able to search for content that has been shared with them.
