Our take: Facebook announced its new "graph search" feature yesterday at a highly-anticipated press conference, but critics say the feature may not be as impressive as it seems. Today, Nicholas Carlson from Business Insider writes that the feature may be another example of a half-baked product offered by Facebook while still in beta stages.
"Facebook came out with a search engine yesterday.
"So far, the verdict of people who have tried it — like Owen Thomas — is that it is neat, but too incomplete to be useful.
"That sounds familiar. Facebook has a bad habit of making a big deal about launching products that come out half-baked, and never really take over the world.
"Facebook PR invited lots of press to launch of Facebook Places a couple years ago. VP of product Chris Cox gave a very emotional speech. The product was basically a stripped down version of Foursquare, but without the game-mechanics, badges, or restaurant recommendations. Do you ever use Facebook Places to check-in to a restaurant?"
