Facebook first launched Graph Search back in January to an extremely small number of beta users. (The “beta” label is sticking now, even as Graph Search rolls out to all US English account holders.) Based on that six months of testing and feedback, Facebook is touting several improvements: - Speed: Graph Search shows suggested potential searches and search results more quickly - Understanding queries: there are more ways of asking questions today - Relevant results: Graph Search is better today at displaying the most relevant results first - Interface: the search box is easier to see and use Graph Search still lacks a few important features, though: searching through posts and comments. Facebook says it’s working on both of those, and also working on rolling out Graph Search to mobile devices — that’s where the nearby/places searches will be most handy for users.
