Elegant refusal vs. more-more-more Graph Search http://onforb.es/UkMaX9
Many, many people do love FB for their personal lives. I'm not one of them. Yes, as a longtime indie blogger, it's a handy way to interact with people who like the content you produce day in & day out.
But I'm less enthralled about it where my personal life is concerned. Which definitely bleeds over into how much time and effort you're likely spend keeping your Fan Page active & engaging & ab fab. However, this new Facebook initiative will no doubt change that. I'm not sure whether to thank Mr. Graph Search quite yet or not.
First though, the terminology. This "graph" bidnez unfortunately conjurs up visions of High School geometry and - *shudder* - talk of x-y coordinates. In fact, "graph" is short for "demographics" which describe anything grouped together by similar interests and/or preferences. And the shorthand "FB Graph Search" really means "a search of the FB database which is parsed by demographic interests".
Where elegance usually is refusal as the incomparable Diana Vreeland of vintage Vogue fame once pointed out, when it comes to wrapping your head around this Graph Search notion, Mae West had it right: more is more.
