Facebook has given a full explanation on how their search results work. The company is doing this because they say that they want to be a lot more transparent when people search for things on their site. Facebook crammed a lot of valuable info in a two-minute video they released to everyone. The Facebook activity that will have an influence on your searches is determined by a few things like the pages you follow and the groups you join.
- What people are doing when not on Facebook does not have an impact when they use Facebook.
- What your friends share with you impacts what you see on the search results.
- Events you have liked or followed will influence your Facebook search results.
“When a user searches for content on Facebook the results are ranked based on their activity on Facebook, and activity of the overall community.”
