In much the same way that Google Search has impacted and raised the bar for enterprise search, Facebook's Graph Search is going to raise the bar for enterprise social and semantic search. The biggest impact to Facebook's Graph Search, beyond its immediate appeal to Facebook users, may be to take enterprise search to the next level, incorporating semantic search and including enterprise social capabilities.
