How do I see what others can search about me on Facebook?

Facebook search respects privacy settings, which means that people can search for info about you that they can see on Facebook, based on what's been shared with them.
Content that isn't shared publicly is only searchable if you're directly connected to that content. For example, if someone that you're not friends with only posts and shares to friends, then you won't see their post in your Facebook search results. Learn more about clearing your Facebook search history.
To manage what others may see about you:
  • Use the audience selector to choose who can see things you share.
  • Go to the About section on your profile to view and manage basic info about yourself.
Bear in mind that your privacy choices determine what your friends see when they search. For example, any posts that you've shared with your friends can only be found by them.
