You can Expand the Search more broadly by clicking on “Expand the Search”. And the final question arises is “What about the Privacy?”. And the answer is that by keeping your privacy in mind Facebook has designed this search engine, it will only show the activities, photos, interests or profile information that you had made public that’s all.

Remember: It is still beta version and more features to come in future its some features are still being built like Friendship-based searches etc.
