Is the Facebook’s Graph Search a positive or a negative?

Facebook has come up with another way to create a strange perception that will be difficult for employers and coaches to manage.  It’s called “Graph Search” and it is on the horizon. This new technology will let you search the public to get “opinions” on almost any subject you would like to search on.
The problem is the data can be incomplete or unscientific and may cause people to form assumptions based on skewed information.

Here is what you should do if you are a Facebook user:

  • Change your privacy settings
  • Have your close friends modify their settings
  • Review your timeline every once in a while to see how your name is being used and what you are associated with.
