Facebook Search

Nowadays Facebook is not only a social site. I probably mention this more often than I should. However it is a fact. At least it is not a social site but the social site. If you speak about this topic there is no chance that Facebook name would not be mentioned. But I will give you a hint. I wanted to go to pub with my friends. And in town where I study I know already a lot of pubs. Both better or worse but I wanted to try something new. My first reaction was take a phone and look at nearby places. I found two places that seemed ok and I made reservation in one directly from Facebook. Well I send message via Messenger but you get the point.

But Facebook search can help you. Or at least It helped me on several occasions. It is nothing hard to search on Facebook. it is probably the first thing you will see on whole Facebook. on the top there is white bar with grey title Search Facebook.

As you can expect then you just simply write your question down and click on the little icon in the right. But at this spot I want to take a second. Well you can write what you are looking for if you know the exact name. but Facebook is so clever that it will find your thing only based on keywords. Yes it works like any other Internet search engine but this is kind of new things to Facebook search.

Before I end the topic I want to return to nearby places. This function makes me happy at least once a week. Simple yet functional. You can choose what you are looking for. Then you just choose where if nearby or somewhere else. After that welcome to the world of simplicity. Results of your search are shown in chart where you can easily read how far the place is and how high is the ratings from other users. I love it.
