Facebook Announces Its Third Reich Graph Search

Facebook Announces Its Third Pillar “Graph Search” That Gives You Answers, Not Links Like Google"

In a nutshell:
"Facebook Graph Search is completely personalized. Tom Stocky of the search team explains he gets unique results for a search of “friends who Like Star Wars and Harry Potter.” Then, “If anyone else does this search they get a completely different set of results. Even if someone had the same set of friends as me, the results would be different [because we have different relationships with our friends].”

"completely personalized" would obsolete the word 'personal'.
The more facebook knew about your personal life the more relevant the Graph Search would be.
Personally, I prefer to be the keeper of my shit.

I am glad I never "liked" anything nor put any personal information on the site that my children wanted me to join. One day they may kick me off when they figure out I didn't use my real name... until then *shrugs*

I always follow the "if it's on the internet, assume anyone can see it" rule. Hence, I never post anything revealing or potentially embarassing. Also, no phone #, no personal email address, no place of employment, no birthdate, etc.

Waiting, too. Didn't use my real name - and what I did use doesn't match any other alias. I don't have a profile, don't have a timeline.
Have everything checked "only me" I just chase the idiots who put customer service there.

They kicked me off a few years ago for that reason. MySpace, Friendster, etc. didn't. I refuse to use my real names on others like Google (Plus). :/
