In his introduction of the new search tool, CEO and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg stated that this project has been in the works for years.

Zuckerberg calls it the 'third pillar' of the Facebook system with the first two being your news feed and Timeline.

Facebook new feature which it says is not a rival for Google’s web search engine but does integrate Bing search.

Zuckerberg explained the difference between Web Search and Graph Search, saying,
"a web search is designed to take any open ended query and give you links that might have answers. Graph search is designed to take a precise query and give you an answer, not give you links that might provide the answer."
 The Facebook Graph service is currently in beta giving access to a few lucky people and hopes to be rolling out soon for everyone else. But if you’d like to try this new Facebook feature when it’s available in your area, join the waiting list at facebook.com/graphsearch.
