How Facebook's Graphic Search Can Help You Find Places
Online services and social networking sites have changed the whole way we engage in our day to day activities. Sites like ebay and Bidgrid have made it easy for you to get hold of your favorite products at affordable prices. On the other hand social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have taken the level of socialising a notch higher.
These social networking sites have turned out to be so important in our lives that posting updates or tweeting has more of less become a part of our daily regime. Such a high level of user dependence also keeps the website owners under constant pressure to come up with features to make the socializing experience much more pleasurable for the users. As users have too many options to switch to, these sites keep on introducing user friendly features and updates to keep their users loyal towards them.
Latest addition to Facebook
One such feature introduced by Facebook is the Facebook Graph Search. This latest addition to the social networking site has made it possible for you to actually find out secrets from the past. Whether you want to know what your friends were up to last year or find out where and when they spent their last holiday, all you have to do is enter a quick search into it.
Like most of the Facebook users, if you too are more interested in knowing how your profile looks like to other people, you can do even that. You can use Facebook Graph Search to find out which of your pictures have the highest number of likes or comments and much more.
Using Facebook Graph search to find places of interest
Facebook Graph Search is not just about invading into the privacy of other people or taking a look at your own journey on the site. This feature holds a lot of potential and has been introduced to make using Facebook much more convenient for people. With Facebook Graph Search the site is trying to ensure that you do not have to resort to any other site for most of the information that you need.
One important thing that Facebook Graph search can help you with is finding your places of interest from across the globe. There are times you wake up one weekend feeling like not making the breakfast and having it all by yourself. But you also do not feel like going to the same restaurant and ordering the same food. So what do you do? Instead of cribbing about it through a Facebook post you can enter a quick search in the Facebook Graph Search asking for breakfast options in your area and you will end up with a list of places that you might have never even have heard of .
The same goes when it comes to choosing a place to spend your next holiday. If your friends are unable to suggest you relevant holiday options and even the travel sites do not seem to do their job well, you can resort to Graph Search. Just fill in your query, say ‘historic places for a one day trip’ and there you go.
