It looks like some people are already getting live access to Facebook’s Graph Search. Of course there is a Tumblblog called Actual Facebook Graph Searches. Today’s entry was “
Single women who live nearby and who are interested in men and like Getting Drunk.”
Dating sites are lucky because many singles prefer to visit a single-purpose site that reflects their intent. But for many of us, Search Graph is a fine way to find local dates. The problem them becomes getting people to publish enough profile data to be useful, especially relationship status, which social dating sites tell me is a painfully low number. I see that all the time when I’m matched with married people and my own relatives. It would be cool if social dating sites could get a person to fill in their relationship status and push that back to FB. Is that even possible?
