Facebook search not working

Anyone else having this problem? When I search for someone by name who I'm not friends with, they won't come up. If I search for a page that I'm not a fan of, it won't come up. For example, I just typed in "immigration reform" and got zero results, although I just left a page that has that in its name. You'd think they'd alert us or give an error message...? Anyone else having the issue?

Yep - exact same issue here for the last couple of hours.. at first i thought i was going crazy because i KNOW the person i was searching for is on Facebook.. I searched by email address then in came up.. then later, i tried again and I had to do 3 or 4 searches before the person showed up.. maybe just a transient 'glitch' ..

I had this problem on-and-off for the first couple of days that they were making the new changes. It works fine for me now, so it's only a temporary glitch, it should be back to normal soon.

It's 3 years later and I'm having the same problem. Temporary glitch? I don't think so...

try googling your facebook searches.
i.e.: Put this in Google:[(your facebook search)+ facebook]

This is a big problem. I've searched for myself on and off for a few weeks to check.  It seems that I don't live in the city where I thought I did, or go to high school where I thought I did. Some other people who I know are members aren't coming up, either.

Re: Facebook search not working
Yep its true, the facebook search funstion is completely useless.. Ive tried to add several friends knowing their exact name or hometown, school or all and the search will turn up empty, pain when you dont have their e-mail..when u search via email doesn't appear ot be a problem although as it finds the person you are searching for. So searching for people with a certain name ina certain area is completely useless most the time.. you would think being as larg a website as they are they would have sorted an issue like this long ago, The older Myspace search engine was fantastic in comparison.
