Facebook Graph Search was a semantic search engine that was introduced by Facebook in March 2013. Unlike Google search, Facebook Graph Search was designed to give answers to user natural language queries rather than a list of links. The Graph Search feature combined the big data acquired from over one billion Facebook users and external data into a search engine providing user-specific search results.
To make it easier to understand, Simon Penson explains Facebook Graph Search as
. . . Facebook’s way of mapping all the data we give the platform together in a really useful way. It is by far the best example of “Social Search” – the premise of creating a search engine based not on websites but on entities – people, places and things.
The search results include not only people, posts, hashtags and locations, but also friends of friends, people with similar interests and people nearby.
