We all let our curiosity run wild once in a while. We search for people we shouldn’t be looking up. We try to message those who don’t want to talk to us. As well, we try to find out who deleted us from their friend’s list in order to get retribution. More simply, we misspell names and it immediately gets logged.
Did you know that Facebook keeps a record of all searches you make on their search engine? Each time you look for a friend and their friends, businesses or personalities on Facebook, it gets stored as search history.
Although it makes it easier to find out what you searched for in the past, search history can easily get cluttered with queries you don’t need in the future. The good news is that everything can be deleted! Here is a step-by-step guide on how to remove the tail of search history:
Step 1: Click the downward arrow located in the top-right corner. Select Activity Log option from the menu.
Step 2: You will see an audit of your recent Facebook activities. Right below yjr photos, likes and comments in the left side menu bar, select More and the choose Search.
Step 3: You can now view all of your search history that hasn’t been deleted. You can individually delete the results by clicking the block icon and remove. If you want to clear all, click on the Clear Searches link at the top.
