Did Your Facebook Search Box Disappear?

Did Your Facebook Search Box Disappear?


The Facebook search box appears in the top right corner of the page when using a desktop browser. Many users are reporting that they can no longer see it or that it disappears when they type into it. 

Facebook offers  answers as to how one might get it back, but they do not work for anyone. 

The problem is intermittent and will probably resolve itself, but if this happens to your account and you do not want to wait for it to fix itself there is an easy workaround.


You will need to modify the URL (uniform resource locator), while you are logged into your account.

The constant part of the URL is "https://web.facebook.com/search/top/?q="

After the "=" simply type in who or whatever you are searching for (quotation marks are not necessary).

That should get you back on track and the only drawback is that search suggestions will not be available.
