Facebook-Zuckerberg

Facebook’s 1 billion users have uploaded 240 billion photos and created 1 trillion connections to date, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said today in conjunction with his company’s big “graph search” announcement.

This incredible amount of data, hosted by Facebook and accessible by individual members, is what prompted the company to create “graph search,” a private search engine to find things your friends and family have shared on Facebook.

Graph search’s priority is to help you “make new connections,” Zuckerberg said. All of the service’s 240 billion photos and 1 trillion connections will be indexed into the search engine, but it is also privacy aware. Only content that has been specifically shared with you will be accessible in your graph search, so you (hopefully) don’t have to worry about a rant you made showing up in someone else’s searches.
