I've been waiting for this news for a long time.

The Facebook Newsroom reports, "Today we’re updating Facebook Search to make it easier to find the posts that have been shared with you." Facebook members using Android smartphones must wait for these new features. "These updates will roll out this week in US English on iPhone and desktop. For more information, visit search.fb.com."

Search Engine Land offers additional information on the new search capabilities: "If you’re not somehow connected to someone, you won’t be able to find their posts — even if those posts were tagged as public for anyone to see. The exception is when searching by hashtags. In those cases, any post might be found."

Hashtags often show up in Facebook's Trending section.

The new search features could cause old posts to receive new unwanted attention. You can review posts in your activity log and change posts to private or remove them for additional privacy.
