Facebook adds trillions of posts to search results
October 24 , 2015
Facebook has indexed some 2 trillion member posts to make it easier to search for them in a bid to keep people on the social networking site.
Now, many older posts will be added to results on searching for news or information.
In a blog post, Facebook's head of search Tom Stocky said many people already turned to Facebook to find out how friends and family reacted to world events. Some 1.5 billion searches per day are being carried out on Facebook, he said.
