Clear Your Facebook Search History

clear search history fbWe knew Facebook was keeping track of our searches and activity all along.  It was only a matter of time before they presented us with a visual of that information.  You can now see everything you’ve searched for on Facebook in your activity log.  It’s actually quite shocking when you first see it because you’re not expecting them to actually have it show up.   Facebook uses the searches to change your Facebook experience by showing more relevant results. The good part is that you are the only one who can see it.  The bad part is, it could be weird or creepy if your girlfriend sees what you’ve searched for!
