    I am doing an advertising venture on Facebook and I was wondering if you were able to find specific people that are part of your target audience when it comes to their ex and current occupations, personalities, age, middle class, etc.

    If so, how can you do this? Thank you.

    Are you talking about paid advertising?
    If so then yes, Facebook allows you to display your ads to your target demographic based on location, age, sex etc. etc.
    You'll be given these options in the process of creating your ad.

    Oh no, I meant when you do an advanced search of some sorts on the search bar or other methods. Something that is free advertising on Facebook.

    Facebook are doing anything to prevent "free advertising" (or as some call it - spamming) and it's not a dating site either so no, they absolutely don't have this kind of features.

    A filter option for searches? Nope, you can't. A lot of IMers are still trying to figure this out for marketing purposes.
