Today we’re updating Facebook Search to make it easier to find the posts that have been shared with you.

You’ve given us a lot of feedback on the Graph Search beta. You’ve told us the most important thing is being able to find posts you’ve seen before, and now you can. 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.


If you want to search using phrases like “My friends who live in New York,” you still can.

Your search results are personalized and unique to you and, as always, you can only see things that have been shared with you.

You’ve also told us you need better search on your phone, so today’s updates were designed for mobile — they’ll be available on Facebook for iPhone in addition to desktop.

Search at Facebook is a long-term effort. Today is a step toward helping you tap into the experiences and perspectives of your friends.

These updates will roll out this week in US English on iPhone and desktop. For more information, visit
