Facebook Graph SearchFacebook announced yesterday they have expanded Graph Search to all U.S. users and it will be rolling out to more and more of these users over the next few days.

Graph Search launched on January 15th of this year and made a big splash. There are a lot of cool and useful searches you can do with it. Facebook says:

  • Speed: Graph Search is faster – both at suggesting potential searches and displaying results
  • Query understanding: Graph Search understands more ways of asking questions
  • Results: Graph Search does a better job at showing the most relevant results first
  • Interface: The search box is easier to see and use

Matt McGee wrote at Search Engine Land exactly what has changed and showed that they've added two search buckets:

  • People I may know
  • Movies my friends like

So far, the SEO world is pretty quiet on this announcement.

Its an improvement over their original search, but still not adequate to do serious digging.
