Random thoughts on art, technology, stuff, and occasionally Real Estate: February 2014

Facebook Graph Search Query Examples

 

FaceBook's Graph Search focuses on searching for people and their connections, rather than searching for keyword-based information.

 

Once you accept that shift in modality, Graph Search becomes pretty interesting.

 

Many Graph Search queries begin with:

"People who / and" or

"My friends who / and" or

"People who are not my friends / and" or

"Photos of"

"Friends of"

 

For example, think of a local club or restaurant or other business in your neighborhood that has a FaceBook presence, in my example, I'll use Cafe NELA, and my hometown of Highland Park, CA. 

 

Search:  "My friends who like Cafe NELA"

Search:  "People who are not my friends and who like Cafe NELA"

Search:  "Friends of people who like Cafe NELA and live near Highland Park, Los Angeles, California"

Search:  "People who like Cafe NELA and are Teachers"

Search:  "People who like Cafe NELA and used to be Teachers"

 

 

 

You can find people you may know who are not yet friends with you on Facebook with this search: "People who are not my friends and who live in Highland Park, Los Angeles, California"

 

Just for fun try this search:  "People who live in Highland Park, Los Angeles, California  and who visited The White House"

 

Think of a large employment center in your community, then try this search: "People who live near Highland Park, Los Angeles, California and work at Disney Channel"

Some bizarre and groan-inducing examples are listed here

 

Currently, I think most folks now have Graph Search for People, Places, and Photos.  FaceBook began rolling out Graph Search for Posts at the end of September, 2013. 

 

I have not yet received Graph Search for Posts.  But once it is fully released, it will open up a whole new world to research.
