Facebook Organizes Its Search Results
Reflecting the growing number of content types on its platform, Facebook has changed its search results display — the drop-down that appears as soon as users begin typing in the Facebook search box. The new display is organized into different content types, replacing the old version which showed results in a straight list format with no organization.
That screenshot, showing the start of a “google” search, includes Groups, Pages, Questions and People. Other sample searches I’ve tried included Places, Apps, Events, and Shared Links in the dropdown. As All Facebook points out, though, clicking the “more results” link at the bottom of the drop-down leads to the still unorganized full search results page.
