Fun With Facebook Graph Search

I, like many of you, was given access to Facebook’s new Graph Search the other day. So, the first thing I did was start seeing how “weird” I could get. Let’s have some fun, shall we?

It’s amazing what kind of things you can find. For example, here’s a list of Cops who are probably about to be fired soon:
cops who like marijuana

Being an SEO I couldn’t resist this one. Here’s some Google employees who like black hat SEO. (more likely just infiltrating various groups to see what’s going on – as if we used Facebook to discuss BH techniques.)
employees of Google who like black hat seo

Here’s an obscure one that doesn’t make much sense unless you know that BYU students are forbidden from using drugs, drinking, or having pre-marital sex.
students of BYU who like condoms and tequila

Here’s a good reason for me to move out of my hometown:
females nearby who like getting drunk and making out

If you think about it, this one clearly demonstrates cause and effect relationships.
employers of females who like having sex

And this one is also kind of obvious:
Employers of people who like "to cut myself"

I’ll do another version of this soon. Until then, what’s the most interesting Facebook Graph Search you’ve come up with? Feel free to share below.
