Facebook Search Tool
After the functionalities of Facebook Graph search changed last year, I came across this great Facebook search tool. The newer version is available to download as a Google Chrome Extension which I have found to be really useful, however, you must make sure that your language is set to English (US) in order for it to work.
I find it really easy to use, and you can search for multiple things at once (e.g. lives, works, speak (language), friends of, gender and so on). If you amend your search in any way it will open the search results in a new browser tab. It’s completely free to download and use, so I really recommend giving it a try. There’s nothing about it that I would say that I don’t like (well, nothing that I’ve found yet anyway!), and it is why it’s now my go-to tool for searching on Facebook.
I should note that there is also a LinkedIn and Twitter tab on the extension, but I haven’t had a chance to check these out yet. I’m sure if the Facebook tool is anything to go by, then they will be just as good.
Here are a few more Facebook search tools that are also pretty useful:
- Custom Facebook Tools by IntelTechniques (You can do some very in-depth searches with this one!)
- Search is Back! Facebook tool
These are also both free to use, so worth a try to see if you like them!
