Facebook Now Allows Users to Search Timelines

From The New York Times:

Facebook clearly has some Google envy. Yet after Facebook’s latest search additions to its Web site, Google probably has some Facebook envy, too.

In a blog post on the company’s Web site Monday, Facebook said people could now search “status updates, photo captions, check-ins and comments” from both their own timelines and those of their friends.

Facebook said people could search for specific things by, for example, typing in, “Posts about Dancing with the Stars by my friends,” which will bring up any posts by their friends on the service who have commented on or shared content about the show. You could also search for “Pictures of me and my dog” to help find photos in which you’re both tagged, or “My posts from last year.”
