How do I search the facebook news feed?

Posted on 2014-07-21
Last Modified: 2014-08-05
I saw an article that a friend (I forgot who) posted or shared, and it made it to my newsfeed. How do I search for it? I tried a google search to find the source-article, but could not find it that way.

Thank you.

I only READ it. I did not comment or LIKE it. Hence the difficulty.

1. How long ago was the post?
2. How many "Friends" do you have?

If one of your friends posted it - you can go through their posts by clicking on their name

If they just commented on a post that someone who is not a "friend"  - Then the only thing you can do is to put up a request for anyone to repost xxxx whatever the subject is
IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

So there is no way to search through posts made by friends? I found a video that showed how it could be done, but none of the prompts on the video were actually in facebook - perhaps the video was made and then facebook revamped their interface?

If you click on a friends name - It will take you to their Wall.  You can't search for anything but your can scroll thru their posts.  All depends on how long ago the post was made.

I am just closing this out - it seems that there is no solution for what I want.
