Popular social network Facebook recently introduced a new search engine called Graph Search. It is a personalized search engine that delivers personalized results based on the content shared with you on Facebook.

Facebook is taking a social approach to online searching by introducing a new social search engine called Graph Search. Using this personalized search engine you can uncover information that is relevant to you. You can for example search for music your friends like, search for photos of your friends, search for friends who share your interests, and more. To put it bluntly, you can look up anything that was shared with you on Facebook.

Type in something like “Music my friends like” and you will be presented with a list of artists and bands your friends like.
