Facebook Search puts people and their stories at the center. It lets you tap into the global conversation about something that's happening in the world, and helps you find people's stories and their perspectives. People use Facebook search over 1.5B times a day, searching over 1.5 billion people and trillion pieces of shared content, e.g. posts, photos, videos, and links. The goal of the search ranking/NLP team is to assist the users to complete their intents, and to provide the most relevant and personalized set of results for these intents and unlock this wealth of information that exists on facebook. We develop ranking algorithms that are a three way optimization between the query, searcher, and the content. We are investing and growing in almost every area that generates signals and contributes to this optimization - query and intent understanding, natural language processing, deriving ranking features from Facebook graph, content and user engagement. We use state of the art machine learning algorithms to combine thousands of these features into the production ranking models to generate the relevant search results at scale.
