Facebook mobile now includes specific-post searches

Facebook Mobile now gives you the ability to search for wall posts via keywords

A long-awaited feature has just been introduced to Facebook's mobile application - allowing you to search for specific posts alongside people, pages, groups and events.




We've been shown an example thanks to Gizmodo, the picture above shows that you can search specific keywords like "Jessica" and "Wedding", allowing the application to provide you with accurate results in all available fields, including previous wall posts.


We've also seen reports that graph search is also coming to Facebook mobile, Gizmodo explains this feature as giving you the ability to "search your friends of friends who work at Westfield, you'll be able to do it from the food court on your phone, not just from your laptop."


We're interested to see how well this will function, as someone who previously managed a large and active Facebook company page in the past, finding my previous posts were quite difficult - but if I'm trying to quickly look for a post on this page, will I be swamped by personal and friends posts from years ago that I don't need?
