I wish facebook had not used "GraphQL" as their name for their SOAP/REST/RPC replacement. When I hear GraphQL I think of a query language for graphs. Like in (for instance) http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1368898 . There has been a lot of cool research over the years on query languages for graphs. Facebook's "GraphQL" is totally nerfing Google's ability to find it.
