Facebook Rolls Out Graph Search to Millions
SOCIAL NETWORKINGJuly 8, 2013
Several hundreds of millions of people will have access to Facebook’s Graph Search beginning this week, six months after its beta testing. Tech Crunch reports on the tool, which is “designed to take any open-ended query and give you links that might have answers,” according to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Upon its initial release, the tool prompted concerns that it would compromise the privacy rights of minors. It “makes paying attention to privacy settings much more important if you don’t want embarrassing photos from years ago dredged up or your public contact information scraped,” the report states.
