So funktioniert die Graph-Search-Suche von Facebook

dapd

Facebook hat am Dienstag eine neue Suchfunktion mit Namen Graph Search vorgestellt. Mit ihr können Mitglieder nach Menschen, Orten, Interessen und Fotos suchen, die innerhalb des sozialen Netzwerkes geteilt wurden.

Wir haben Antworten auf ein paar Fragen gesammelt, die sich jetzt stellen:

Wie funktioniert Graph Search?

Facebook wird eine blaue Suchleiste am oberen Ende seiner Seiten einführen. Über die Suche werden Fotos und Informationen angezeigt, die öffentlich sind oder mit einem geteilt wurden. Darunter fallen auch Profilinformationen und Personen, die ihren Standort als „öffentlich“ angegeben haben. Die Nutzer können Bilder finden, die sie selbst eingestellt haben oder die von Freunden veröffentlicht wurden – aber auch Fotos, auf denen sie nur markiert wurden. Andere Nutzer werden ebenfalls hochgeladene Bilder finden können – auch solche, die von der Chronik gelöscht wurden.

Was genau kann die Suche?

Facebook hat mitgeteilt, dass sie sich in der ersten Version von Graph Search auf vier Bereiche konzentrieren:

Personen

Ein paar Such-Beispiele:

-          Personen, die in deiner Stadt wohnen

-          Personen aus deiner Stadt, die die Serie „Girls“ mögen

-          Freunde deiner Freunde, die in einem bestimmten Restaurant waren

-          Steuerberater, die in New York leben

Fotos

Weitere Beispiele:

-          Fotos, die Sie selbst mit „Gefällt mir“ markiert haben

-          Fotos von der Familie

-          Fotos des Grand Canyon

-          Fotos, die Freunde vor 2008 gemacht haben

Orte

Noch ein paar Beispiele:

-          Städte, die von Freunden besucht wurden

-          italienische Restaurants in Ihrer Heimatstadt

-          Restaurants in New York, die von Köchen gemocht werden

Interessen

Beispiele:

-          Musik, Filme und Serien, die die Freunde mögen

-          Bücher, die von Autoren gelesen wurden

-          Sprachen, die die Freunde sprechen

Facebook hat bereits erklärt, dass es in Zukunft noch weitere Suchmöglichkeiten geben wird.

Was ist anders bei Graph Search im Vergleich zur Suche bei Google und Yahoo?

Facebook durchsucht nur die Informationen, die innerhalb des Netzwerkes geteilt wurden. Inhalte von anderen Websites bleiben außen vor. Wer also nach der Adresse eines bestimmten Restaurants in Chicago sucht, wird sie vermutlich nicht finden – was bei Google funktioniert. Für Suchen, auf die Graph Search keine Antworten hat, werden die Ergebnisse von Microsofts Websuche Bing angezeigt. Wenn Sei allerdings wissen wollen, welche Restaurants in Chicago von Ihren Freunden „geliked“ wurden, wird Facebook das anzeigen können.

Wann ist es verfügbar?

Zu Beginn wird Graph Search nur für wenige Nutzer und nur in den USA verfügbar sein. Es gibt eine Warteliste, auf der Nutzer sich eintragen können: www.facebook.com/graphsearch

Werden die Einstellungen zur Privatsphäre dadurch geändert?

Laut Facebook ist das nicht der Fall. Das Unternehmen erklärte, Nutzer könnten nur nach Informationen suchen, die mit ihnen geteilt wurden. Mitglieder des Netzwerkes müssen allerdings in Zukunft noch genauer überprüfen, wo sie überall markiert wurden – um nicht in den Suchergebnissen aufzutauchen. Auch Minderjährige können in den Ergebnissen auftauchen, sagt Facebook. Mehr Informationen zur Privatsphäre und zu Graph Search gibt es hier: http://www.facebook.com/about/graphsearch/privacy

Ich möchte nicht an Graph Search teilnehmen. Was kann ich tun?

Es gibt keine Möglichkeit, nicht an der neuen Suche teilzunehmen. Allerdings können Sie Fotos, Informationen und Markierungen löschen, um nicht von anderen auf Facebook gefunden zu werden.
