QUOTE: All Facebook users have an ‘Activity Log’ that tracks your actions across the platform, and this includes anything you have searched for on Facebook. Only you can see your search history, so this information isn’t available to your friends or to the public.  However, if you use a shared computer .. then clearing your search history might not be a bad idea.

1. Navigate to your Timeline and click on your ‘Activity Log.
2. Look for the ‘More’ link in the left column and click it
3. Scroll down in this column and click on the ‘Search’ link.
4. Lastly, click on the ‘Clear Searches’ button.
