Via newsroom in a week Facebook announced another feature related to posts is that now you can search status updates or posts from graph search. In order to make a refine search you must need to enter a additional words along your desired keywords in Facebook graph search to find status updates, posts, check-ins, comments and all things which are available publicly.

Below are the few examples with additional words which you will need to search posts on Facebook via graph search:

1. If you want to find your Facebook posts from archive then you must need to specify a time in query. For example to find your own posts from last year the search query should be like this "my posts from last year", or use "my posts from august 2013" to find your all posts from the month of August 2013. 

2. To find all posts on which you have commented you need to use "Posts I commented on".
3. Hash tags are quite useful to describe posts topic and it also makes easy to find all publicly shared posts using same hashtags. But still most of people don't use it. But, now via Facebook graph search you can find posts which contains your desired keywords. In order to find posts about city, place make your query as "Posts written at the White House", and to search post from your friends with specific keywords use query "Posts about atoz by my friends".
