Search suggestions, tips

Last Updated: Sep 05, 2013 12:38AM PDT
Search allows you to rediscover and relive moments from Path.  When you open up Search, there will be suggestions for moments you might want to revisit.  You can combine different category suggestions to create stories of your own. Create stories by making different combinations of emotions, people, categories and location.  The categories that you can search from are:

- Names (first name, full name, me)
- Months
- Places (place names, categories, cities, province, countries, tags)
- Moments (music, photos, videos, thoughts, runs, nike/workout, place, movie, book sleep)
- Weather (sunny, snowy, hot, cold)
- Seasons (winter, spring, summer, autumn)
- Time (morning, noon, afternoon, evening, night)
- Emotion (happy, laugh, surprise, sad, love, best)
- Birthday (birthday)
- Holiday (christmas, new years, hanukkah, halloween, thanksgiving, independence day, groundhog day, valentines day, mothers day, fathers day, st patrick day, labor day (US locale only)

Some good examples of Search stories might be:
- my sunny san francisco
- winter in New York
- 5 months ago
- my first photo with Stacey
- weekend books
- funny photos with Alex

Other tips
- ‘My’ is a great way to search for moments you have posted or have been tagged in  
- Multiple people get treated as ‘or’; for example, ‘Brian Sofie Nell summer photos’ will return moments from the summer of Brian or Sofie or Nell
- Avoid punctuation; instead of ‘John’s birthday’, search ‘john birthday’
- You can search for emotions by using emoticons; ex. :), :D, :o, :(, <3
- Try singular words if plural doesn’t work; ex. bar vs. bars
