2 Ways to Search for Posts on Facebook

Search for Posts on Facebook
Are you searching for a particular post on Facebook?

There are a couple of ways to search for Facebook Posts without having to go too far into the weeds.

 

 #1 Use Graph Search

If you remember a phrase of the post or what the post was about, you can use the Graph Search function at the top of the Page.  Enter the phrase and then use the magnifying glass to get all the results.

Then you will be able to sort through the posts from your friends or any posts that are public that have this phrase in it.  You can also use this technique to do more general searches to find out what people are posting about around a certain topic!

#2 Use Your Activity Log

If you have interacted with the post in some way – liked it, commented on it, or shared it somewhere – you can find it in your Activity Log.
