    I just checked using the Facebook app on the iPhone 5 and I could not see any type of search filters. You would think they would have this.

    Sadly, there are a lot of little features like that left out of the App.

    Is there a logical reason why these type of features are left out?

    Think about what you just asked. Logical - Facebook, these two don't play well together! LMAO
    Seriously though, I have no clue. I just remember FB had said they didn't think they really needed a mobile type app. Shoot, there still is t a dedicated app for iPad yet.

    Probably the same reason forum apps are limited in features - to keep them simple and easy to use.

    That is a great point. If people really want to search for people in a particular area etc, they can go on the computer. It is possible, just not for the iPhone. I myself only use the Facebook app to see who is on the chat and to see recent updates on my news feed.
