How to Search for your old Facebook Posts

On December 8, 2014 the social networking giant Facebook made an update to Facebook Search.

About the new update Facebook announced that “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.”

Means users will be able to search inside posts of their friends. So how to search for your old Facebook posts? Here it is….

1. Think a word. For example ‘Jessica Wedding’.


2. It will show query or the search key you’ll be taken to a new screen returning any and all posts

3. Results are not displayed in chronological order so you should scroll until come across what you’re looking for.

Is the feature available for you now? 


Right now the feature is only available to only iPhone and Desktop users. So far there is no official announcement of the added functionality for Android users.
