Facebook’s Graph Search is now rolling out to UK English users

Facebook’s Graph Search is now rolling out to UK English users

More than ten months after Facebook first introduced Graph Search, the social network has announced that it will start arriving for all users who have selected UK English as their language over the coming weeks.

In a statement issued to TNW, Facebook says the roll out will be gradual, so it can garner feedback and make changes accordingly. So you may not see it immediately.

Launched as a limited preview for (US) English-speaking users back in January, Graph Search takes a user’s exact query (natural language), and delivers an answer via a large search bar at the top of a user’s profile page. For example, it lets users search for friends and Pages by name, or use precise phrases to find something more specific in people, photos, places or more. You can search for things such as “TV shows watched by doctors”, “People who like things I like”, or “Music liked by people who like Mitt Romney”. It’s worth adding here that users can only see things that have already been shared with them.

Today’s news follows the full public launch for US English users in August, and means that anyone anywhere in the world who has their profile set to US or UK English will soon be able to use Graph Search.
