Thank you Sep 30th, 2013,



One of the common complaints from Facebook users is the inability to find specific posts or status updates. Now, Facebook is working toward a solution by allowing posts to be found through Graph Search.

Facebook announced Monday that posts and status updates within a user’s friend network are searchable via Graph Search. This is rolling out slowly among a small group of users who have Graph Search.

Privacy settings on posts will not change, and users will not be able to see posts if they’re not within the person’s privacy controls.

Facebook announced this new feature in a Newsroom blog post:

Starting today, Graph Search will include posts and status updates. Now you will be able to search for status updates, photo captions, check-ins and comments to find things shared with you.

Search for the topics you’re interested in and see what your friends are saying, like “Dancing with the Stars” or “Posts about Dancing with the Stars by my friends.”

Facebook notes that users will soon be able to search posts by time and place, as well as look back at their own posts.




Readers: How do you feel about these new features?

If you use TweetDeck as a dashboard for your Facebook activity, that will end Tuesday. On May 7, as promised, TweetDeck will discontinue support for Facebook feeds.

The removal of Facebook support has been planned for some time. In early March, the service publicly said it would stop supporting Facebook at the same time it abandoned its mobile apps, turning exclusively to web- and desktop-based apps. Then in late April, it gave a date: May 7.

Starting Tuesday, TweetDeck users who don’t remove their Facebook columns from their dashboards will have those columns removed for them. At the same time, TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone will all disappear from their respective app stores.

TweetDeck’s transition from a social network aggregation tool to a service exclusively for Twitter power users is a consequence of Twitter acquiring the company in early 2011. Since then TweetDeck has shifted its focus to its web experience, desktop apps and browser extensions , leaving aggregation to other services such as HootSuite .

While it’s been known for a while that TweetDeck would scrap Facebook support, the news is catching some users by surprise, judging by discussion on Twitter:

Are you bummed that TweetDeck is sunsetting Facebook support? Share your reaction in the comments.
