Facebook rolling out post search within Graph Search

PostSearch650

One of the common complaints from Facebook users is the inability to find specific posts or status updates. Now, Facebook is working toward a solution by allowing posts to be found through Graph Search.

Facebook announced Monday that posts and status updates within a user’s friend network are searchable via Graph Search. This is rolling out slowly among a small group of users who have Graph Search.

Privacy settings on posts will not change, and users will not be able to see posts if they’re not within the person’s privacy controls.

Facebook announced this new feature in a Newsroom blog post:

Starting today, Graph Search will include posts and status updates. Now you will be able to search for status updates, photo captions, check-ins and comments to find things shared with you.

Search for the topics you’re interested in and see what your friends are saying, like “Dancing with the Stars” or “Posts about Dancing with the Stars by my friends.”

Facebook notes that users will soon be able to search posts by time and place, as well as look back at their own posts.
