What Do You Think Of Facebook’s New Graph Search? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you what’s your favorite way to share photos. Granted, the best way depends on who you want to share with, but many of us still use one way most often despite that. The fight was a very close one, with the votes spreading across several options in almost equal measure, but at the end one method pulled ahead to take first place. Which one was it?

Out of 307 votes in total, the breakdown was as follows: 2% voted for printing as the best photo-sharing method, 4% voted for Instagram, 10% voted for Flickr, 11% prefer email for photo sharing, 19% like Facebook best, 22.5% voted for Picasa/Google+, and in first place by a mere 6 votes, 24% voted for a cloud service such as Dropbox/Box/SkyDrive etc. 7.5% voted for Other.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

It’s interesting to see how uncommon printing has become. Also noteworthy is the surprisingly small number of users who voted for Instagram.

Want to make some extra MakeUseOf reward points? The most useful comment on the poll will be awarded 150 points!

Introduced two weeks ago, Facebook’s new Graph Search has by now reached many user profiles. If you’ve seen a notification about it and enabled it, you’ve noticed that the entire top bar of your Facebook homepage has changed, and now includes the option to search for things like “people who like running and are from my hometown” or “my friends who like John Irving”. The search yields very different results from a regular Google search, but naturally comes hand in hand with privacy issues. Have you tried Graph Search yet? What do you think about it?

Tell us in the comments what you like or don’t like about it, how you plan on using it, or reasons you have for not enabling it. If you’re worried about privacy, be sure to check out Angela’s tips on preparing your account for Graph Search.
