How do I search the facebook news feed?

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

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.
