Facebook To Allow Users To Delete Search Activity
Facebook announced users will soon be able to delete their search activity under their “Activity Log.”
The feature is being released over the next couple weeks to all Facebook users. Currently, Facebook users are able to delete other activity, like status updates, under the Activity Log. Now, Facebook will be allowing you to do the same for your searches.
Here is a screen shot of how it will look:
Starting today, in addition to your other activity, you’ll be able to see the searches you’re making on Facebook. Just as you can choose to delete any of your posts, you can use the same inline control on Activity Log to remove any of your searches at any time. It’s important to remember that no one else can see your Activity Log, including your search activity.
Facebook’s CEO said they will be working on a Facebook search engine in the future but right now, the only searches you will see in your activity log are searches done on Facebook.
