Why is Facebook's search feature so terrible?
I'm looking for someone I know with a strangely written name, and Facebook can't keep that spelling for an accurate search.
Example 1: I have supplied an image which shows a Facebook image overlaid on a Google search (site:facebook.com) for the name Chindy. Chindy is a common name in South East Asia. Facebook converts it to Candy and Cindy without any choice to avoid Anglo names.Example 2: Search for Dog videos returns nothing. Okay, so I then like a dog page. Search for dog returns videos from that page. Facebook search is terrible! The question is asking why is it so?

Easy to blame the programmers, right?
What if that person doesn't have an FB account or worse, has one but under a different name. Don't assume everyone is into what you're doing. FB is not a requirement to life.

doubt it's as bad as win-10 search feature … win-95 had best search feature.
