Facebook is enjoying a bump in its stock price Tuesday. Let's look at the technology stocks to watch:
Social network's shares rising. Facebook stock is up 1.8% after the company rolled out its new social tool Graph Search to more users.
The search allows people to discover things based on their group of friends. For example, an user could search for friends who live in a particular city, or whether they like to play sports.
As the AP reports, ads are not involved with Graph Search, but could play a role in the future.
