What do the quotation marks on the FaceBook activity log mean?

Anonymous December 22, 2013

Sometimes I notice on the facebook activity log, it says John has searched for " "
What do these quotation marks mean? I’ve noticed this happens when a friend uses my facebook.

    Quotation marks are used to emphasize word or words as such.
    I was looking for a pencil
    is a different statement than
    I was looking for a "pencil".
    The second statement indicates that the search term was - pencil.

      Thanks for your answer but what I meant was that I only see the quotation marks in the Facebook Activity Log area and there are no words in the between the quotation marks.
      I am confused as to what they mean within that Facebook area.
