Another Facebook Search Snafu: Obama's Pig With Lipstick

Next Story

Joshua Goldman reviews some camera

Facebook has a history of somewhat erratic search results, particularly for searches on political candidates – a bug last year caused zero results to show up for searches on Ron Paul, for example.

Today a reader notices that searches for “Barack Obama” on Facebook gifts turns up just one result – a pig with lipstick. A similar search for John McCain shows a normal pro-McCain button.

This likely tracks back to Obama’s comments on Palin earlier this year, referring to her indirectly as a “pig with lipstick.”

A search for Sarah Palin shows only one result – a dog with a heart over its mouth.

You gotta love search.
