New Facebook search tool

Posted: Updated:

 

Have you've ever wanted to know the most popular TV shows among your Facebook friends who are doctors? Or maybe you want to see all the photos your friends have taken in Paris? Well, Facebook now has a new search function.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled the feature Tuesday. It's called "graph search" and lets users search their social connections for information about people, interests, photos and places. Until now, Facebook users were unable to search for friends who live in a certain town or like a particular movie. With the new feature, people can search for friends who, say, live in Boston who also like "Zero Dark Thirty"
.
Zuckerberg says the search feature is "privacy aware." That means users can only search for content that has been shared with them.
