This is the new Facebook Graph Search that Facebook have recently released for a few beta users who signed up in the waiting list in Facebook’s website. This is a close invitation preview and is currently available to a limited number of users. Facebook Graph Search provides an enhanced searching mode for finding people, places, photos and other things related to you and your friends/network.
If you click on the new search box above on the header a popup sub menu opens up. You are given a list of suggested search like Photos of my friend, Restaurants nearby, Games my friends play, Music my friends like, Photos I have liked. Clicking on it will show up a Grid layout of different matches found on your search query.
You’ll also find a floating sidebar search filter in your search result page to further refine your searches.
The Refine this search box allows you to filter by the following:
- Filter by whoever is the owner of photos
- The people tagged in the photos
- Location of places of the photos
- Date taken of the photo
- Filterting by the people who commented on the photo
- Filterting by the people who liked the photo
- Who reshared which photos
I personally like the UI but I know of some people who wouldn’t like the change that the Facebook logo is moved to right with a Home text link. The logo of Facebook is now so small now and it will take some time to move the mouse cursor to the far left.
What do you think of the new UI for this Facebook Graph Search? Let us know what you think in the comment box below.
