Apparently, Facebook is not satisfied with being the largest Social media platform, they also want a share of the National Search cake.

In a bid to compete with Google and Twitter, the Social media giant just stepped up their search. You know how you can go to Twitter and search for anything and have tweets come up but on Facebook, it sucks?! Well, everything is about to change according to the  announcement made on its blog.

Facebook is updating its search feature to make it possible for users to search 2 trillion indexed public posts on any topic whatsoever – for example when you search for gays in Nigeria (Don’t know why I used this example), you no longer see a list of suggested groups, Pages, or events. Instead, you’ll be directed to a personalized, curated feed with the relevant posts and photos from friends and strangers alike. Here’s a look at what search results would look like:

The major idea behind this is to ensure they keep people on their platform. They want you to rely on them for personalized searches, Your reliance will ensure you use Facebook more than you will use Google’s search engine.

With 2 trillion indexed posts, Do you think Facebook has what it takes to battle with Google or Twitter?

    Yes they can. It’s a welcomed development, lets see what it brings. I hope it won’t affect other features oh..

    Wow! That’s Impressive. Facebook search Sucks Because You don’t get the expected results. Nice Improvements from Facebook Team!

    Facebook will try but can’t reach Twitter standards. Most Facebookers post irrelevant posts. You can never be satisfied with the things you see there.
    For e.g. 1. Search ‘Aki and Pawpaw’, you’ll see hundreds of Aki & Pawpaw account & some posts asking you to type “Amen” to pray for them because they were recently involved in auto crash (which is lie), just for likes & comments.
    2. Look at the hashtag they introduced to the site, it sucks more than this current search option.

  5. Facebook keeps growing that you can imagine!
    Ve been waiting for this.

  6. Lol,
    But I don’t agree with the hashtag stuff,
    it shows you trending posts with that tag like when i click on #chooseyourphonegiveaway I saw plenty posts which almost make me loose hope on the competition.
    I think its a nice feature.
