Facebook Graph Search needs Debouncing. 
Fantastic results using intersecting graphs to match searches.
Rubbish usability, the search box lacks debouncing rendering the UI/UX frustrating to use for collection of search elements. Facebook engineering counteracted adding an inline form like some early Windows era reporting to build a collection of search string elements— stunningly even the form lacks debouncing. 
Zuck your team can do far better software engineering (my boss would fire me for such a crummy work around). See David Walsh on debouncing: http://davidwalsh.name/function-debounce
