WiFi is open in airplane FAA. Confirmed

Federal Aviation Administration,
(faa) mentioned that there is no harm when passengers connected via WiFi. So in future we all gonna connected via WiFi will flying in the plane. But still there is a restriction for calling via mobile and mobile data packages. So we can expect these changes in future. For now connecting via WiFi while flying is big thing.

The FAA will still have final say over what is and isn’t acceptable regarding gadget use, but the consensus seems to be that mobile devices during all phases of flight pose no imminent threat. If everything goes through, the rules could change as early as next year.

Graph Search available to users in the United States and others who use the American English version of the site, with access to other languages coming soon, a Facebook representative told CNET.

Examples of searches Facebook gave during its launch event included “friends who like Star Wars and Harry Potter” and “photos of my friends taken at National Park,” but Graph Search’s beta users have discovered much more humorous (and arguably useful) ways to take advantage of the tool. Tumblr Actual Facebook Graph Searches gives many examples of these queries, including “married people who like prostitutes” and “employers of people who like racism.”

Graph Search is a very important tool for FB, Tech Blog say that it s very easy to make advertising and easy to marketing.  But after this graph search going to become less privacy. Once it launched we have check and make some privacy changes,  some tech blog published with the help of  Facebook Graph Search Hacker got Huge nos of Phone number. So better we check the privacy system and making some restrictions and keeping to keep our self’s  in safe side,
