It's been several months since Facebook introduced Graph Search, but you may be wondering what it's good for. The short answer: a lot of things! Here are some clever ways to make use of Graph Search if you already have it, and some reasons to sign up to get it if you don't have it already.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

If you want to find a good Chinese restaurant in Sydney, you can type "Chinese restaurants my friends have visited in Sydney" and Facebook will show relevant results. It's an interesting idea, but the rollout plan means it will be a long while before it has much relevance to Australians.
