Facebook developing its video search

All search developments aim to keep users on the platform, rather than searching elsewhere.

Until now, unless you could remember which friend shared a specific video, it was very hard to find specific video content.

A new search facility on its mobile app means that Facebook users can discover video content.  Search results will include both live and recorded content.

Facebook is also making live video available in its search results.  A ‘Live’ symbol next to a trending topic means that relevant video is available on the topic.

However, there aren’t any search filters on offer as yet.
