FB Search?

My sister and I were trying to search for someone today on FB with a very common first and last name, and nobody came back in our search.

I think that maybe my FB is just having search issues.

Is anyone else having this problem?

    Maybe they are hidden from being searched, I know people who are. You cant find them by their name or email, but they DO have facebook.

    FB has been acting bad all around. It's the change of things. I haven't really had the search problem but been having other problems. So I'm sure it's just FB.

    This happened to me too. I just went back to the main page and tried searching again and it worked.

    Oh, I know that they specific person could have hidden themselves from the search.

    But it was a really common name. So others typically would've popped up.

    I just typed in "Lindsay Lohan" and allegedly there are no fan pages or groups about Lindsay Lohan, which I seriously doubt.

    I think my search is broke-d-d-d.

    I agree, lol, but I doubt that there are no pages about it. ;)

    Nevermind I just tried and I get no results either for a variety of names I try. Nothing shows up.

    I'm just glad that it's not a user-flaw. :)

    The search feature must be having problems.  I searched for my name, and usually there is about 5000 people, right now, none!

    It's working just fine for me.

    I know.  I was just trying to stalk my ex's baby's mama and had to search for her the hard way.  Damn Facebook.  This is not billable time.

    I had this problem but I would finally get to work.  If you search "Joe smith" and nothing comes up there should still be a list on the sides.  Select "people" as your filter and see if names show up then.

    I am saying its a FB issue I just searched for John Smith and got no results.  Weird since the change on FB I have heard of there being more issues than ever

    Sorry it was worth a shot :(  Its like they forget to try a beta version to get all the kinks worked out.

    Oh and a FB PSA

    There is a new fan page called "win a free Ipad" or something like that.  When I noticed my mom has joined it I informed her they could steal her info and to get out. She said she didn't even know how she got into the group.  I helped her get out of the page, and then I realize I was in the group.  I know I did not request to join or how I became a fan, so beware and check your pages to make sure you are not a fan.  I have had a friend spamming it and I have a feeling they got hacked from it.
