When Naming a Group on Facebook, don't use & (an ampersand)

Although Facebook will happily allow you to create a group with an ampersand & in the name you cannot search on it.

Let's say, for example, you created a new Facebook group or page called:  "A and B - Sales & Service"

Then you typed the exact phrase "A and B - Sales & Service" into Facebook's search field.  You would be disappointed to find the search results are 0.

You see, the & is a valid character in a group or page name on Facebook, however, it breaks the Facebook search routine.  So, continuing with this example, if you instead typed "A and B - Sales" It would find your group successfully.

Something to keep in mind when naming your next product or interest on Facebook.
