PowerSearch lets you search the Facebook Social Graph for posts, users, pages, events, groups, places and check-ins for any topic of interest. Search for upcoming concerts events (e.g. The Birchmere), conventions, sporting events, artist pages, locations, specific users or posts on any topic. Save events to your calendar so that you are notified when they occur.
Posts are now only your feed posts because of a change to the Graph API.
