When Facebook announced new column formats in its search functionality in March, the social network had a new feature it wanted to make available to advertisers: a new option to filter through the results.
The feature was only available on the desktop version of the platform, where it had been available since its launch in 2013.
But the feature was available on mobile devices as well, and it now had a chance to be turned on for all users on mobile as well.
A Facebook spokesperson confirmed that it was indeed possible to add new columns as a way to better represent the content of your posts.
“This will make your posts more relevant and useful on Facebook,” the spokesperson wrote.
“It will help you understand what your audience wants and how they can reach it.”
A search for ‘Facebook Search’ would show a list of search results that show search results for “facebook search” and similar terms.
If a search engine would add a new column, it would show the new column instead of just the old one.
The spokesperson noted that Facebook had been working on new columns for some time, and that adding new columns was not a new development.
But adding new column to the search results is a step forward for the platform.
The company has had its share of problems with its search features in recent years.
For example, the company has faced backlash for offering a service that allowed people to search for anything, including links to fake news stories, by the name of “news”.
It has also struggled with a spike in the number of people who have reported issues with its social media tools, and has been criticized for not having more robust safeguards in place to ensure users can trust Facebook’s data.
Facebook also faced a backlash when it was forced to remove some content from its app in 2017, including a feature that allowed users to flag certain pages.
In 2018, it also lost control of its news feed and was forced into a merger with Yahoo, which it eventually bought in 2019.
Facebook’s search results have also been under scrutiny by some of the world’s largest media companies, including Google, which has been accused of pushing news content to its platform.
Facebook has denied that it is biased in its news content, and in a statement, it said that the fact that users have more choices in the search options “is an important part of what makes Facebook the most effective social network”.
“While we do not believe that every article is relevant to the audience, we want our users to have more options to discover and share their content,” the company said.
“We encourage people to read and share news they find interesting, to share content they like, and to engage with the stories that matter to them.”
