14:56 EDTFB, GOOG, MSFT, YELP, IACI, LNKDFacebook trading lower after event introducing 'Graph Search'
Shares of Facebook (FB), which had been higher throughout the morning, are lower in mid-afternoon trading following the company's event to introduce its new "Graph Search" social search engine. During the event, Facebook demonstrated new social search features planned for its site, which are currently in beta testing and available in limited release, and made clear how the graph search differs in many ways from traditional web search as delivered by Google (GOOG) and others. Facebook did, however, announce that it has partnered with Microsoft's (MSFT) Bing to integrate web searches where appropriate to supplement graph searching. Facebook illustrated ways that the new product could be used to provide user specific answers to challenges like finding restaurants, potential job applicants and prospective dates. Shares of several companies that potentially could be impacted by those features were volatile and moved lower during the event, including Yelp (YELP), LinkedIn (LNKD) and IAC/InterActive (IACI), the owner of Match.com and other dating properties. Following the event, Facebook's stock is down 0.83, or 2.67%, to $30.06, Google is up 50c to $723.75, and Microsoft is up 23c to $27.11. LinkedIn has recovered, and is now up 44c, or 0.4%, to $117.98, while Yelp remains down 1.62, or 7.5%, to $20.31, and IAC/InterActive is down 95c, or 2.2%, to $42.45.
