Facebook Upgrades Its Search Capability

Later this week, Facebook will roll out an enhanced Facebook Search that will allow users to search for specific posts.

Facebook will soon make it easier for users to find the posts their friends have shared with them.

The Facebook Search upgrade, which will roll out later this week, is based on the Graph Search beta users’ feedback, as many people expressed interest in revisiting posts they’ve seen before, according to a blog post by Tom Stocky, vice president of search at Facebook.

“With a quick search, you can get back to a fun video from your graduation, a news article you’ve been meaning to read, or photos from your friend’s wedding last summer,” Stocky writes.


Facebook Search is unique to each user, and only works for things that have been shared with you. The upgrade will allow for searches on phrases like, “My friends who live in New York” or “Jessica wedding.”

“I do think it’s really important for social channels to continue to make beneficial improvements for users because they’re only going to stay active and engaged in these vibrant communities as long as they’re getting a good experience,” says Becca Lewis, manager of the product analysis team at Crimson Hexagon, a social media analytics platform.

The new Facebook Search will be rolled out in U.S. English later this week, both on desktop and Facebook for iPhone.
