MENLO PARK, Calif. - CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced a new search feature for Facebook.
Zuckerberg made the announcement during a press event Tuesday in Menlo Park.
Called "graph search," the new service 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.
