Facebook Graph Search – New Tips

booleanstrings Boolean Leave a Comment


Here is a new site helping with the Facebook graph search queries – Who Posted What (Idea by Henk van Ess, Developed by Daniel Endresz,) The site (still in Beta) offers to search for comments by a user with a given keyword or posted within a certain date range. The Facebook ID that is required can be easily found via https://findmyfbid.com/.

Apparently, the template string to search for somebody’s posts with a keyword is –

https://www.facebook.com/search/<FB ID>/stories-by/str/<keyword>/stories-keyword/intersect

Example search for posts.

Now, if you wanted to find comments containing a given keyword by a certain person, the template, similarly, can be, as I have discovered –

https://www.facebook.com/search/<FB ID>/stories-commented/str/<keyword>/stories-keyword/intersect

Example search for comments.

I find these searches helpful in locating posts and comments from given people on given topics of interest.

Please join me at the last presentation of the twice sold-out Facebook Sourcing Mastery class on Tuesday, March 20th, with an optional Practice session on Wednesday, March 21st.
