How to Search My Posts on Facebook

by Michael Butler

If you regularly us Facebook, you might want to find an old post of yours to recall what you wrote or to see how a friend responded. Facebook includes a search function you can use to search everyone's posts or just the posts of your friends. However, these search results do not include your posts. To search through your own posts, you will have to do so manually.

Sign in to your Facebook account.

Click your name on the left of the screen to go to your page.

Press "Ctrl" plus "F" to bring up your brower's search function. Type in a word, then press enter.

Click the arrows to scroll through the instances of the word on the Web page. If you do not see the Facebook post you are looking for, click "Older Posts" at the bottom of the page.
