Facebook announced its much anticipated internally-focused search engine on Tuesday, called Graph Search, which allows users to make much more specific searches on Facebook.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg invited a few dozen members of the media to the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California last night, when he revealed Graph Search.

“The search we wanted to build is privacy-aware,” he said. “You can only search for content that has been shared with you.”

Zuckerberg described Graph Search as “a completely new way for people to get information on Facebook” and said it represented one of Facebook’s three pillars, the other two being Timeline and News Feed.

Graph Search allows users to search for things as specific as “friends from college who like Jay-Z,” which would then prompt a full list of friends who meet the criteria.

“This is one of the coolest things we’ve done in a while,” said Zuckerberg.

We’ll agree with Zuckerberg when it can accurately pin point the hot single girls using its metrics.
