Facebook Allows Users To View And Delete Facebook Search History

Facebook had introduced a feature few months back called Activity log, a list of your posts and activity, from today back to the very beginning. You can see stories and photos you’ve been tagged in, as well as the connections you’ve made – when you liked a Page or added someone as a friend.  It’s a tool that lets you review and manage everything you share on Facebook.

You can adjust your privacy setting or delete anything you posted on Facebook. If the story came from someone else (like when a friend writes on your timeline or tags you in a photo), you’ll be able to review who all can see it. You can also control whether stories show on your timeline.

Search activity has always been private, but now Facebook is giving users an option to delete search history through the profile Activity Log. The new feature will give you more transparency into what you do on Facebook. It is simply about giving users more control.
