Facebook introduces upgraded search tool called Graph Search

Graph Search will let users search in more detail for people, photos, places and interests

For example, it could show you photos of Berlin from 1989

Mark Zuckerberg: "This is one of the coolest things we've done in a while"

The search feature on Facebook has traditionally been pretty limited. You type in a name of a person or a business, and it pulls up their Facebook page.

But that’s about to change. On Tuesday, Facebook introduced an upgraded search tool, called Graph Search, that will scour the massive social network to answer more sophisticated questions.

Want to find buddies of your pal Chris who went to Stanford and live in Chicago? No problem. People who like tennis and live nearby? Here you go. How about photos of Berlin from 1989? Done.

“This is one of the coolest things we’ve done in a while,” Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said at a press event at the company’s headquarters.
