Facebook GraphSearch

by papalakaka / April 27, 2013 8:39 PM PDT

With Facebook GraphSearch the social network is providing a powerful search feature, which allows you to search for people, places, music, games and simply everything on Facebook. GraphSearch is really intelligent and even lets you search for people with common interests of yoursel. For example you could simply "People who like WParea" or "People who like WParea and Windows Phone" and you will get a list of all these people providing you with all the information they have provided publicly.
This also brings some privacy concerns with it, because everyone will be allowed to use GraphSearch and abused by certain people. Consider to hide some information that is currently public on your profile so you won't be seen on GraphSearch.
You can find a short review and my opinion about this in my YouTube-Video:

Do you think Facebook is going to far with this?

Why did you put that much personal information on that system?
