Graph Search is a feature Facebook introduced to allow users to enter parameter-based searches to find friends — and friends of friends — who share certain interests. A search for “friends who ski” or even more specifically “friends who ski in Arizona” will narrow the results within that field.
Even CEO Mark Zuckerberg‘s sister, Randi Zuckerberg, was caught unawares by the new privacy settings. When a photo she posted — which was intended to be private — became public, she raised a stink and got it removed.
Those users who previously had opted out of having their timelines appear in search results then were forced to change the privacy settings for each post if they wanted it to remain out of sight.
