Facebook is testing Graph Search on mobile devices, hinting that a full rollout is coming soon

Facebook launched Graph Search on the Web browser as a way for people to query their social graph to find out what people are sharing about a particular topic, and now the social network is testing the feature on mobile devices.

The Verge reports that some users have already seen the changes over the weekend, such as Mashable reporter Seth Fiegerman.

Graph Search takes a user’s exact query like “TV shows watched by doctors,” and delivers an answer via a large search bar at the top of a user’s profile page — which means you can better search for others with similar interests. Bringing Graph Search to mobile devices will also help Facebook get an even clearer barometer of things people are interested in to help determine what’s trending.
