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.
