Search Facebook in the Content Studio

The Content Studio makes it easy to search for content from any public Facebook Fan Page. Auto-complete and page avatars help you to quickly find the exact Fan Page you are looking for. The inline preview provides a quick post view. You are also able to mouse over to view and interact with the full Facebook embed.

To search and curate posts from Facebook Fan Pages:
 
1. Go to your stream's Write page.
2. Click on the Facebook tab located in the Search Content column.
3. Type the fan page name into the search bar and click Enter



4. Select desired fan page from drop-down menu. 


5. Select either Posts or Feeds.
  • Posts: show only the posts that were published by this page. 
  • Feeds: show posts (including status updates) and links published by this page, or by others on this page. This includes approved Tagged / Visitor Posts. 

  
6. Hovering over the desired posts will display an inline preview.  

 
 
7. Click the checkmark to publish or the plus to bring into the Moderation Hub.

 
 
Note: Facebook posts publish as Facebook Embeds by default. This means they are media rich and include text, headlines, images, videos and interactive content.

Search Facebook in the Original Writer's Interface

Like our Twitter social search, there are several ways to curate social content from Facebook:

  • Fan Page Search
  • Comments By URL
  • Topic Search

Facebook Fan Page Search

You can search and pull updates from Facebook Fan pages into your stream using the Facebook Fan Page URL.

To search and curate posts from Facebook Fan Pages:
  1. Go to your stream's Write page
  2. Click on the Facebook tab in the social sidebar
  3. Type the fan page URL into the search bar (i.e. facebook.com/FanPageName
  4. Ensure that your Facebook search settings are set to Fan Page by clicking on the downward arrow above the search bar
  5. Click the Search icon. Click the search icon again to refresh the populated Fan Page results

                              

 

Facebook Search by Comments' URL

You can also search for Facebook comments made on articles, using the article URL.

To pull-in Facebook comments made on an article:

  1. Go to your stream's Write screen 
  2. Click on the Facebook tab in the social sidebar
  3. Type in the article URL that has comments made by Facebook users, into the search bar (e.g. we used the URL of a Techcrunch article with Facebook comments)
  4. Ensure that your Facebook search settings are set to Comments By URL by clicking on the downward arrow above the search bar
  5. Click the Search icon to generate the most recent search results. Click the search icon again to refresh the populated comments made to your selected article

 

Facebook Topic Search

The Topic Feed API provides a ranked feed of public Facebook posts that mention a specific topic. All public posts (posts with the audience selector set to “public”) are included in the feed, except posts from Profiles that do not have “Follow” turned on.

To curate Facebook content based on a topic search:

  1. First, select the Facebook tab from the social sidebar
  2. Select Topic Search from the drop-down
  3. Enter the topic title you'd like to search Facebook for
  4. Click the magnifying glass to search
  5. If there are search results, they will populate below the search field; click the topic that best matches your search
  6. Posts under related to that topic will appear below the topic result; publish post to your stream using either the Approve check-mark or drag post into Advanced Editor

 

Topic Ranking Factors

Topic search results are ranked based on multiple factors, including:

  • Overall engagement with the post (i.e. number of likes, shares, and comments)
  • Whether the post comes from verified pages and/or profiles

 

Use Case Example
Media organizations can use the Topic Feed API to view the most popular posts for a specific topic. For example, during a basketball game, a TV network can display on-air a ranked feed of what people on Facebook are saying publicly about a specific player.
