Facebook introduced Graph Search today a new way to search between Facebook's massive amount of photos, people, and connections that Mark Zuckerberg says is "not web search." 
Graph Search is different from the web search. Where web search takes a set of keywords and provides results, Graph Search combines phrases to get that set of people, places, photos and other content that's been shared on Facebook. It's not an engine like Google or Microsoft's Bing, but an engine that will search for information across all of Facebook's one billion users.

The new Facebook feature is currently in beta and available only to certain users. Graph Search will appear as a large search bar at the top of each page. You can save your search results and give it a custom name. At first, Graph Search will focus on four key areas: people, places, photos, and interests.

If you're interested and would like early access, go to the Graph Search web site to sign up.

The natural search is amazing, but I don't think i'd want to dig through my friends like that. Feels wrong, man.
