Graph search online dating
The Graph Search feature combined the big data acquired from its over one billion users and external data into a search engine providing user-specific search results.
In a presentation headed by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, it was announced that the Graph Search algorithm finds information from within a user's network of friends.
Rather than returning results based on matching keywords, the search engine is designed to match phrases, as well as objects on the site.
Search results were based on both the content of the user and their friends’ profiles and the relationships between the user and their friends.
In late September 2013, Facebook announced that it would begin rolling out search for posts and comments as part of Graph Search.A post on the Facebook Engineering blog explained that the huge amount of post and comment data, coming to a total of 700 TB, meant that developing Graph Search for posts was substantially more challenging than the original Graph Search.
