Facebook’s Graph Search: A Foursquare-Killer?
Share

Okay, so unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past two weeks, you have probably heard of Facebook’s big announcement last January 15th: Graph Search. More than a new “search tool,” Facebook will now tap into its huge database of users interactions to power a search tool that will not simply provide you with a bunch of links, like in a classic search with Google, Yahoo or Bing, but rather add a whole social layer upon it. Consider these Facebook statistics:

There are now more than 1 billion users on Facebook, with an estimated 743 million active users (active at least once in the past month).

58% of its user base access Facebook daily, while 23% access it 5+ times per day!

More than 60% of users access their Facebook account via a mobile device.

More than 1 million websites have integrated with Facebook.

There are over 300 million photos uploaded to Facebook every single day.

There are over 500+ million “likes” per day.

1 out of every 7 minutes online is spent on Facebook. The average session per visit is 20 minutes.

These are all mind-boggling statistics that can now be put into motion to power the Graph Search engine. Well, lo and behold, I was granted access a few days ago and so here are my first thoughts on the new shiny tool.
