Zuckerberg said Google wasn't willing to do what Facebook wanted in terms of privacy concerns.

Q: Any plans to couple voice search with Graph Search? A: Nope, not right now, says Zuckerberg.

Stock's been heading south all throughout. No phone, no more stock bump.

Q: What would you like Google to do regarding privacy? Zuckerberg: When people share on Facebook, we want to give them the ability to take content down after they share, for example. That takes a lot of commitment from our partner. And Microsoft was willing in a way that Google was not.
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:05:37 PM
"That's where the discussion fell apart last time we talked about it" with Google.

Q: Have you tested Social Graph with people outside of Facebook?
James Martin1/15/2013 7:07:57 PM
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:08:27 PM
The hope is that now that search exists, people will fill out more information. (Seems like a hard argument. This whole system requires people to share a lot about everything).

Q: Question about places A: We order them based on who has 'Liked" them and checkins and all of that is fed into an algorithm.
James Martin1/15/2013 7:10:22 PM
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:10:40 PM
Zuckerberg: We recently started asking people to checkin and rate places. By doing that, we're enabling a mass amount of people to discover great restaurants.
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:11:18 PM
"There are so many people on Facebook that you can get good signals very quickly," says Zuckerberg.
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:12:46 PM
Q: Will Instagram be involved? Zuckerberg: That should be on the list of the things that one day we will get to.
It's really early, it's not that we've forgot. It takes years and years and is really hard.
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:13:03 PM
That's a wrap, gang.
daniel1/15/2013 7:13:51 PM
well - yes - people will share more but it will be stuff that they are already sharing on Yelp or Foursquare or LinkedIn
David Hamilton1/15/2013 7:13:59 PM
And now back to comments.

@Paul Sloan Why is this? What went wrong between Google and Facebook?
Phil1/15/2013 7:14:07 PM
How will this work towards friends who don't "like" everything in sight. Will the liking sytem get extended so that it encourages peaple to share interets more?
Phil1/15/2013 7:14:14 PM
So is the search result refined exclusively to Facebook? If so will it link out to websites sometimes?
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:14:15 PM
Thanks very much for watching. In sum, this is a bold effort as Facebook steps into search through what it's calling Graph Search, focusing on ways to parse information about photos, places, interest, things.

Can't wait to put "Find jobs for a smart ass in Wichita, KS."

@CNET great coverage guys, very smooth and easy to digest
Crystal Macklin1/15/2013 7:14:41 PM
well done CNET, thank you
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:14:53 PM
Christos1/15/2013 7:15:51 PM
Maybe not head-on with google but a start nonetheless methinks...
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:15:51 PM
Clearly there's a long way to go w/ all this -- but this is a smart direction for Facebook that CNET has been writing about for a while.
idea2go1/15/2013 7:16:02 PM
Small business will feel compelled to get on this and to ask everyone to "like" them. Wonderfully evil network marketing effect on FB's part.
RA1/15/2013 7:17:05 PM
Great photos of Zuckerberg

what about video search. what I be able to search for video of my ex with my friends.
Sudip Biswas1/15/2013 7:17:17 PM
i was expecting a FB phone :(
jjj1/15/2013 7:17:25 PM
sounds like the ultimate creep machine
Jay C1/15/2013 7:17:47 PM
Makes 'Pages' that much more powerful. Will boost spending my companies, vying for 'Likes' so it will get boosted in the results. Win for FB revenue, along with % cut of Bing results..
Jake Massa1/15/2013 7:17:54 PM
people should really review their post, especially the one which are public
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:18:39 PM
IN fact, search is something we knew they would get going: check out this piece i wrote about predictions for 2013: news.cnet.com
annonymous1/15/2013 7:18:50 PM
Well done @Paul Sloan... Everyone be sure to like CNET on Facebook, so when you search "live feeds about Facebook announcements" this will come up haha
Elena Meadowcroft1/15/2013 7:19:03 PM
What's with the stars/reviews on that screenshot of restaurant search? Are the reviews pulled from Bing or is Facebook setting up an internal review system for places?
Jay C1/15/2013 7:19:19 PM
There will be a similar privacy outcry when this rolls out...but it will be baseless, just like the last one...Users thinking FB is publishing private data, when really it has been public all along.
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:20:01 PM
The big challenge is how much people will share and be comfortable. But i think this is the way the search world is going and despite all the talk about how both web search and social search can coexist, i think Google must be nervous.
Paul Sloan1/15/2013 7:20:25 PM
It's time to mingle and head out. Thanks again, gang. Thanks for watching. Paul
idea2go1/15/2013 7:20:37 PM
I wonder if there wil be a setting to allow my "likes" to count but not to be individually identified?
