The world's largest social network made quite a stir recently when they announced Facebook Graph Searches.

The new feature is essentially like a Google search, but specifically for friends and their interests. It's being touted as a way to discover similar interests, hobbies and likes with your friend list and beyond.

Facebook Graph Searches sound like a great idea, but one doesn't have to think too hard about all the ways that this can be a little creepy and lend credence to instances of cyber-stalking. This idea is brought to light in hilarious fashion by comedy site Slacktory's exploration of the inappropriate and strangely specific possibilities.

Hopefully Facebook will come up with a way to make this new feature slightly less creepy. Stats for Funny Facebook Graph Searches Trending: Older & Average
