23 Oct 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Facebook just made 2 trillion public posts easily searchable (so you should probably check your settings).

Facebook has fed everyone’s public posts into its search engine, meaning that most updates will now be readily available for everyone — no matter how old they are.Facebook just made two trillion posts easily searchable, so those embarrassing statuses you thought were relegated to the annals of time may crop up again. ‘Because we’ve indexed the entire world’s conversations, we tell you things that are trending, things that are breaking, what’s happening right now,’ Rousseau Kazi, a product manager on the site’s search team, told The Verge. ‘Once you understand the basis of the story, we move into how your world is reacting to it,’ Kazi added. ‘We’re making it super easy for you to get everyone’s perspective in one place about a topic that you care about.’ The whole point is to steal people away from Twitter, which just enabled the ‘moments’ feature to make it easier to see real-time reactions to news. Facebook hopes that the tool will allow it to become more of a way of finding out what is going on — it will be possible to search for how people are reacting to a news event, for instance, or to find everything that everyone has said about a certain TV show.

It will also allow Facebook to track more accurately what people are talking about, so that its search tools can offer information about what’s going on. Facebook showed off how searching for “water on mars” would bring up everything that people were saying about Nasa’s announcement — but searching for a more personal, private event would do the same. The same choice can be made whenever you post — just underneath the status update page sits an audience option, which adjusts who will see the update.
