MENLO PARK, Calif. Jan 15 (Reuters) - Facebook Inc CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled on Tuesday a feature that he said would help its billion-plus users sort through content within the social network and its content feeds, in the company's first major product launch event since its May initial public offering.

Speaking to reporters at its Menlo Park, California headquarters, Zuckerberg described what he called "graph search," which allows users to search through only content that has been shared with them.

What a scam… and here we thought they would put out something actually useful. For the kids on facebook, what… search for something someone had said to them? Bad comments that made them feel bad, and want to go look that up… just to remember who their “friend” was ??? Stupid feature

The Calpers investment portfolio had a historic drop in value, going from a peak of $250 billion in the fall of 2007 to $167 billion in March 2009, a loss of about a third during that period. It is now around $200 billion. REUTERS/Max Whittaker   (UNITED STATES) - RTXPWOZ
