Facebook has announced that the posts and status updates will become a part of its results, so that users are able to search content including check-ins, comments, and photo captions.
However, users will be able to see the content that has been shared with them. This will include the content from friends and publicly shared posts.
The enhancement to Graph Search will be rolled out to a small number of users initially and their feedback will be added to the next phase of rollout.
While announcing the feature in the Newsroom post, Facebook said:
"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.
Search for posts about a city, place, or from a certain time, such as “posts by my friends from last month,” or, “posts written at the White House.”
Search for posts you want to see again, like “posts I commented on,” or, “my posts from last year.”
As with other things in Graph Search, you can only see content that has been shared with you, including posts shared publicly by people you are not friends with. Use privacy shortcuts and Activity Log to review who can see the things you share.
This is rolling out slowly to a small group of people who currently have Graph Search, and we will continue to improve this experience by listening to feedback. Learn more about looking for posts with Graph Search in the Help Center".
