Article in New York Times
Graph Search is a beta product that we are rolling out slowly to help people find content on Facebook. Currently, we do not offer APIs for Graph Search and don’t offer any developer products related to Graph Search. While we hope to have a version of Graph Search for developers at some point in the future, this is still some ways off.”
The NYT has corrected its article to explain that it “misidentified a Facebook product discussed at a developers co...nference. It was a social search feature, but it was not Graph Search.”
Our original post is as published below…
Facebook may be on the cusp of introducing Graph Search to third-party mobile apps after the New York Times reported that the company is encouraging developers to include the social feature in their apps.
The social network’s own help pages explain that Graph Search is “only available as a limited preview on desktop for people using Facebook in English at this time,” but an NYT article suggests the company is hatching ambitious plans:
At an invitation-only mobile developers conference at Facebook on Thursday, the day after reports emerged that Snapchat had rejected its offer, Facebook product managers pushed mobile developers to incorporate the company’s new social features into their products, which would help it spread its tendrils.
Back in October, 9to5Mac cited sources who claimed Facebook was testing a new mobile app that integrated Graph Search to bring together users with similar likes, but it seems like the feature will also launch in third-party apps.
It’s not exactly clear how it would work, but Graph Search could enable developers to introduce features that let users share scores, play together and generally enhance the viral potential of apps and games. Messaging apps are already dabbling in this space with plenty of success, offering developers an alternative channel through which to reach users and monetize their apps.
One example is Line, a Japanese app that includes a ‘connected’ games platform that offers over 30 titles that monetize using in-app purchases. Line’s messaging app has more than 280 million registered users and recorded net sales of $99 million for its last quarter of business.
In North America, Canada’s Kik Messenger recently opened its HTLM5 content platform to developers — one app recorded 1 million downloads in under 24 hours — while Tango, a messaging app with over 150 million registered users, has offered connected games since June and recently introduced Spotify-powered music clip sharing.
Facebook leveraged its social graph with great success on the desktop so it is inevitable that it will try to replicate that on mobile. The only question is when.
The Privacy Concerns of Graph Search
Following the initial rollout of the beta version of Graph Search, user privacy concerns were a hot topic of discussion, since Graph Search gives Facebook users much easier access to older Facebook content. It's important to understand that Graph Search results are different for each person, and the results are based on what you (as a user) have shared with the searcher. As a result, it's important to review your privacy settings, since these settings will determine which aspects of your information are discoverable in Graph Search.

Facebook has begun rolling out its Graph Search to English-speaking users, enabling them to find out specific details about their friends.
Previously Facebook users could only search for brands or friends by name and location; Graph Search lets users find specific information including their friends' favourite films, restaurants, likes and dislikes, work and education history and more, using filters.
For example, users can search for friends in London who are vegetarians, friends of friends who like yoga, or photos of a boyfriend from a certain month or year.

How to Get the New Facebook News
Facebook unveiled a whole new news feed on Thursday morning and the revamp comes with a host of fresh features. Among the chief advantages: bigger images, multiple feeds for different interests and a more consistent user experience across mobile devices.But all the intrigue brings up just one question: How to get the new Facebook news feed?Well, there's a site for that and it's pretty simple — although the change may not take effect as soon a...s you'd like.
First, go to facebook.com/about/newsfeed
Second, click the big green "Join Waiting List" button at the top of the page. Boom. Done.
Next step? Wait.Just how long you'll have to wait, however, isn't quite certain.
Facebook said at its big unveiling press event Thursday that the new look will begin rolling out to users that same day.
So some lucky folks will be exploring the new features before bed tonight, while others will have to wait a bit longer. We've asked Facebook for a ballpark range, but so far haven't gotten a response.Now just a bit more about the new news feed's new features.Multiple feeds will allow you to sort between a range of different categories: Close friends, friends in general, music, photos, games and people and brands you "follow" (as opposed to friend). A simple chronological news feed timeline is an option too.Photos — which the company says make up 50% of all of news feed stories — take center stage now as well. You can see that increased visual emphasis in the screenshot above, and its part of the redesign's heavy mobile focus.
