Facebook Advanced Search in Latest Posts

How to search in greater detail in Facebook’s Latest Posts

Facebook allows you search in somewhat advanced way using filters but will only apply those advanced filters to the ‘Top’ posts.

This technique is useful for both networking & marketing research.

To apply those same filters to the ‘Latest’ posts follow the instructions below:

  • Search in Facebook as normal using keywords (Use “Quotes” to search for “Exact Phrase“)
  • This will return the ‘Top’ results
  • Choose and add your filters – such as date and location
  • Copy the section of URL code after your keyword/s and starts with &filters

Then click on  the ‘Latest’ tab and paste that section of the URL into the new URL directly after your keywords
