Facebook Testing Keyword Search

Facebook is expanding Graph Search.

The social network is testing keyword search on its mobile app, allowing members to search through old posts or pages they have followed according to keyword.

“We’re testing an improvement to search on mobile,” Facebook said in a statement. “In this test you can use keywords to search for posts you’re in the audience for on Facebook.”

As an example, if a user wanted to find a post by his friend Alex Jones about his trip to Las Vega, he would type in “Las Vega Alex Jones.”

Facebook is remaining pretty tight-lipped about the experiment, which it said is being tested only on a small scale thus far. The company declined to comment on if it will be rolled out to all users.

Seemingly, the only reason Facebook offered any comment at all, was because the story was reported by Bloomberg.

    There’s been an app to do this for a long time. http://fsearchapp.com. It can perform keyword search for posts, status updates, links, photo albums, individual photos, videos and much more. Unlike the Facebook feature mentioned in this article, the app is available to anyone who uses it. There is a Facebook version and an iPhone version of the app.

    It turns out social media such as facebook has also been tested against a key word search for the users of facebook social worldwide.

    Thank you for sharing this kind of information and knowledge
