What Wikipedia has to say about Graph Search?

Facebook Graph Search was a semantic search engine that was introduced by Facebook in March 2013. It was designed to give answers to user natural language queries rather than a list of links.[1] The Graph Search feature combined the big dataacquired from its over one billion users and external data into a search engine providing user-specific search results. In a presentation headed by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, it was announced that the Graph Search algorithm finds information from within a user’s network of friends. Additional results were provided by Microsoft‘s Bing search engine.[2] In July it was made available to all users using the U.S. English version of Facebook.[3] In December 2014, Facebook changed its search features, dropping partnership with Bing,[4] and eliminating most of the search patterns (from wikipedia).
