  • Publication number: 20150324420
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes accessing a prior structured query previously selected by a first user of an online social network, where the prior structured query corresponds to a first set of search results and comprises references to one or more objects associated with the online social network, identifying changes to the first set of search results corresponding to the prior structured query, and sending, to a client system of the first user, one or more suggested structured queries for display to the first user, where at least one of the suggested structured queries is a dynamic query comprising at least a portion of the prior structured query and a reference to the identified changes to the first set of search results corresponding to the prior structured query.

  • Publication number: 20150286643
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes receiving from a first user of an online social network a search query input including one or more n-grams; generating a number of query commands based on the search query input; and searching one or more verticals to identify one or more objects stored by the vertical that match the query commands. Each vertical stores one or more objects associated with the online social network. The method also includes generating a number of search-result modules. Each search-result module corresponds to a query command of the number of query commands. Each search-result module includes references to one or more of the identified objects matching the query command corresponding to the search-result module. The method also includes scoring the search-result modules; and sending each search-result module having a score greater than a threshold score to the first user for display.
