Facebook’s “Graph Search” Is Out of Control
This week, Facebook released a Beta test of its new search function, Graph Search. While the program certainly makes stalking your friends significantly easier, its specificity can sometimes come off as downright weird. Take a look at what happened when I searched “Games My Friends Play.”
Wow, this is really convenient. I can see what games my friends like! Farmville? Really? I wonder what else I can see…
Ohh, I have friends that work at PlayStation? Cool!
I guess their friends play fun games too…although, I don’t really see how that’s relevant…but okay…
Is this even English?
Maybe it was just a weird glitch. I’ll try something else. Movies!
Wow, it has a map and everything! Slightly creepy, but I’ll take it.
Okay, this is going somewhere…
I mean…I don’t work at a movie theater but if I did, I guess I should probably like it, right?
At least I can know where my stalkers work.
I need new friends…
So…how do I get the regular search bar back?
Go home, Facebook. You’re drunk.
