    Traditional relational databases and keyword-based searches simply can't keep up with the crush of Big Data available to today's enterprises. For giants like Google and Facebook, graph-based search tools provide an efficient way to surface volumes of related data for millions of users.

    But graph-based search engines are also catching on with startups. CrunchBase profiles the millions of connections between 650,000 high-tech companies, executives and investors, and Decibel offers detailed data on over one million albums of music, including composers, musicians and record history.

You've probably used a product or service powered by a graph database within the last few hours. From social media sites like Twitter and Facebook to real-time recommendations on eBay, graphs impact our lives every day.

Whether you're identifying a potential dating match or mapping the suspicious behaviors of a fraud ring, the uses and applications of graph databases are endless. Graphs are ideal for today's next-generation applications because they efficiently store both data and its relationships – something other databases simply can't do.

In this slideshow, Neo Technology provides a look at the range of unexpected ways graphs impact our everyday lives.
