Friend suggestions can be based on a partial view of the social graph
- - for example, each user may be able to see their friends and their
friends' friends, which would enable an algorithm running on their own
device to suggest friends' friends who they may know, without anyone
(including the service providers) having a complete view of the social
graph.

Limited searching would also be possible using a partial view, and
would support the 'best' use cases for the feature (reconnect with old
friends, find that person you were talking to at that party) without
allowing people to look up complete strangers.

Cheers,
Michael
