Facebook has rolled out a new Search tool in what it says is to make it easier for users to find old posts that they shared.


”You’ve told us the most important thing is being able to find posts you’ve seen before, and now you can”.  Tom Stocky, VP of  Facebook Search said in a blog post.

“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.”

The updates have designed for mobile but facebook says they’ll also be available on Facebook for iPhone in addition to desktop.

The company also said the search results are personalized and unique to you and, as always, you can only see things that have been shared with you.

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

These updates will roll out this week in US English on iPhone and desktop.
