Facebook To Developers: Prepare Apps For Graph Search

Facebook encouraged application developers to prepare their apps for the launch of its new graph search feature, saying that graph search will help their apps through the discovery process.

In a post on its developer blog, the social network wrote:

Apps are now more discoverable on Facebook with graph search. In addition to showing up in search results based on your app’s name, they can show up in search results based on criteria like “strategy games my friends play,” or, “apps my friends who live in San Francisco use.” To optimize your app for graph search, please make sure your app details are up to date and your app is properly categorized.

Readers: Are you looking forward to the launch of graph search?
