Facebook Begins Rolling Out New Search Tools

Get ready for your Facebook search bar to start looking a little different.

Starting Monday, Facebook will begin rolling out the advanced search feature it announced earlier this year to all users in the United States.

Called Graph Search, the tool allows users to conduct more advanced searches -- like "Restaurants in New York City my friends like" or "photos of my friends before 1996" -- and get detailed results.

It will be a few weeks before everyone who uses Facebook with the "US English" setting will have the new feature, but several hundreds of millions of people will get it this week, the company told ABC News. And after more than six months of user testing and feedback, Facebook said it believes the product is ready for the masses.
