Facebook has announced that a new version of Search is now available for everyone on the popular social networking site. Facebook members can now search the last 30 days of their News Feed for status updates, photos, links, videos and notes being shared by friends and the Facebook Pages.
The new search feature allows users to search more types of content that are being shared on the site. For example, users can find out friends’ evening plans and recently frequented restaurants by searching for “dinner.” Or, users can query “economy” to find out what people or news sources are saying about the economy. Users can also search for a company or product to learn what other people think about a particular brand or product.
Engineer manager Akhil wrote on the company blog, “To search for a particular term, just enter your query in the search box in the upper-right corner of any page. Once you’re taken to the search results, use the filters on the left-hand side of the page to view only posts by friends or posts by everyone. If you’re searching for a specific person, Page, group or application, you also can filter by those results.”
Facebook members can expect the new changes to be implemented over the course of the next few days.
