Steps

  1. 1
    To start with, we need to slide the screen to unlock it.
    Then if you have a code lock, enter the passcode. After doing so, we will be able to access our applications.

    We need to open the Facebook application.
    The icon is a blue square with a white letter "f" inside of it. Let's give it a tap, and we are in the News Feed.

    To access the search history, we need to scroll down the timeline.
    At the top of the screen is a line with a search option. We have to give it a tap, and it will take us to the search page, where we can look for people or pages. We already have previous results of people whom we have already looked for, but we can edit or completely erase it.

    We searched for this person today and the Intercultural Women's Network page before.
    To edit or erase one result at a time, we have to tap on the little x located to the right of the person or page name. Let's see how it works. Tap on the cross, and that search result disappears. Tap again to remove more search results.
