The rate at which social networks seem to be encroaching in to our personal lives is quite alarming if not intimidating. Just a few years ago, we had to mail each other as a form of communication but now you only need to tweet or update your Facebook status and your whole world of friends get what is happening in your life. Still, social networks, Facebook to be particular, have expanded their territory launching the Graph search. Should Google be threatened?

The Graph search, a new feature of Facebook, allows users to search for photos, people and interests within their network of friends. This way, you really do not have to go through tedious processes, you only have to search and voila!

Mark Zuckerberg announced the launch of the Graph search referring to it as the 3rd pillar of Facebook. Will it turn in to a social nightmare or will it overdo Google and become the new authoritative search engine? Well, we’ll all have to wait and see.
