How to Avoid Having Your Posts Show Up in Facebook’s New Public Search

23 Oct 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Now, anyone can search for your public Facebook posts.

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 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 site also provides a review tool, which can be found in the “Who can see my stuff?” menu, that allows people to go through a timeline of everything they have posted and decide whether they want to make it private. 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.
