Facebook Redesigns Recommendation Stories In Anticipation Of Graph Search

Recommendations from friends are one of the major components of the graph search feature Facebook introduced Tuesday, and the social network is preparing for the rollout of graph search by sprucing up the appearance of its recommendation stories.

Sister blog Inside Facebook offered details on the new look, in which stories based on friends’ recommendations now feature the cover images of the businesses being recommended, as well as the ratings those friends assigned to those businesses.
