We all know that social media is ever changing, ever growing and ever addicting. Due to the fast paced social media scene, it’s not unusual for a site to make changes or additions fairly frequently. Facebook is the prime example of the ever changing social media site. Finally after an entire year, I’ve stopped hearing rants about the ridiculous Timeline feature. Now that those shenanigans have died down, it’s time for Facebook to bring about another ‘kookie’ addition. But relax my social media crazed friends, thankfully this new addition has nothing to do with your page format. I repeat, your page will stay the same!
Now as if Facebook stalking couldn’t get any
better worse, the Graph Search Tool was created. Basically it’s Facebook’s way of getting as close to Google as possible without creating an actual search engine…per se. With the Graph Search Tool, you can pretty much find out information regarding people, interests, locations, etc. (Again, much like searching Google or any other search engine site.) Doesn’t sound too ‘stalkerish’ right? Well that depends…the information collected for you happens to come from all your friends and pretty much everyone else using Facebook. For example: if you’re looking for a fellow Underwater Basket Weaving enthusiast, Facebook can help narrow down all those in your area with the same (ahem) hobby. Again, not creepy at all? I suppose if you use this search tool as just that, it actually could be quite beneficial. However, the downfall to this new search tool is that Facebook decided to choose Bing as its sister search engine. Who uses Bing, honestly?
But before this new search tool makes it debut, what’s your verdict? Do you think you’ll stick with Google and leave Facebook for it’s original purpose? Or will you ‘kill two birds with one stone’ and use Facebook for the whole shebang? Personally, I think I’ll stick with Google. Like i’ve always said, “When in doubt, Google out!”
Either way, more information is on its way before the release date. Perhaps i’ll search Google for some more information and add it to another post. (Ha! Ha!)
