How to search for previous posts easily in Facebook

If you have ever searched through Facebook for a post either you or a friend created it can be frustrating unless you know this simple little option.

Web Version:
If you are using the web version of Facebook simply enter into your account (or friend's profile) and after the profile name put a space and type in a keyword (baseball, Christmas, birthday, etc.) You will then see the posts that came up regarding that keyword (along with other options as well).

App
If you are using the Facebook app - simply enter into your account (or friend's profile) and next to their name in the bar at top you will see a magnifying glass. Select the magnifying glass and type in a keyword (baseball, Christmas, birthday, etc.) You will then see the posts that came up regarding that keyword (along with other options as well).

Embedded below is a 1 minute and 33 second YouTube tutorial showing the two different ways.



Take care,
