Facebook Improves Its Social Search Engine

Facebook upgraded its social search engine Monday. The new Facebook search will return better results for profile updates, shared links, pictures, personal videos, as well as posted notes.

Facebook beta tested their new social search engine with a selected group of users for about a month and decided to launch the new search upgrade based on the positive results from the testing.

Facebook users can now search the last 30 days of news feeds for status updates, pictures, web links, videos and notes shared by their network of friends and the Facebook pages of which they are a fan.

People who opt to make their Facebook content public will have their status updates searchable by the entire Facebook community, not just friends.

Facebook users can hide their content from the new social search by changing their profile’s privacy settings.
