How To View Search History On Facebook

Facebook is a world class social media platform, that gives it’s user the option of quickly searching for a person, page, group, service, etc., without having to go through several pages to get what they are looking for. Facebook for several years has been the choices of so many social media users as it offers several thrilling options to its users. This has made it stand out and among other social media platforms, thus steadily increasing the number of its users.

However, every time you make a Facebook search on anything – from searching for an ex (we have all done that) to searching for a Facebook page of your most loved celebrity. It gets stored as a part if your Activity Log. This activity, however, is stored as private, which means it can be seen by only you (and maybe Facebook), so it is not in anyway a violation of privacy.

Facebook says the reason for storing these searches is for showing you relevant subsequent search results.
