Simplified Search in Facebook as of Google

Search symbols that you use in Google for simplified search can be used in Facebook as well. If you are not familiar with google search symbols refer to Google search basics. A typical way to search only specific results is to use symbols like ":". If you type university:TX, google shows the result for universities in texas.

In Facebook if you type "name:sam status:married" , facebook will search for "sam" whose status is married. Similarly for pages it could be "page:abcde". If you use pipe "|", sam smith | marry jane, the search result includes both sam smith and marry jane on the search result in the same page.
