Facebook Graph Search

A Facebook search capability introduced in beta in 2013. Along with a regular Web search, Graph Search enables members to ask questions about what their friends like, do and recommend. For example, a member can search for friends who like to dance, swim or play tennis. Members can find friends who recommend their doctors, dentists or other professionals. See Facebook.
