Facebook Adds Auto-Suggest To Search Box
Continuing to improve and emphasize its search capabilities, Facebook today announced the inclusion of an auto-suggest feature to its search box.
Just as it does in other settings, the auto-suggest appears as you type a query. But, with some Facebook content and connections behind a wall, the question is, Where will auto-suggest look for suggestions? Here’s Facebook’s explanation:
Now as you’re typing in a query in the search bar, you will instantaneously see results not only of the people, events, groups and Pages you’re connected with but also the connections of your friends and globally relevant results.
So, from my profile page, I get these results as I start to type the word “search.”
Facebook says auto-suggest is rolling out to all users over the next few days.
