Campaign to fix Facebook search


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Facebook search sucks!

Surely Facebook’s ears pricked up when the data demonstrated more people using them than using Google to find stuff?

To demonstrate how bad it’s getting look at this results page for a search for National Accident Helpline.

If you are interested in the brand and what they are saying on Facebook there’s a lot to distract you! These spoof groups are all well and good but my main point is that if people used Facebook search more in the first place that there would be less duplication when setting up groups.

Social media should remain all about fun, but surely the 96,000 odd people who are spread amongst all those groups on the first page of results could just belong to one!

If people found it easier to search on Facebook I’m sure there’d be less duplication (and more fun!)
