Finding Someone On Facebook
If You Have A Facebook Account
  • Go to the homepage of facebook and login your facebook account. In your account, on the top you will find a search box. All you need to do is to enter the name of the person you want to search.  Facebook may have several people having the same name, but to enhance the efficiency of your search, facebook will put the results according to your network. For example, if you live in Canada, facebook will search the people whose name, place of living, work place, etc is mentioned as Canada. In case you are looking for someone outside Canada, all you need to do is click on “search all network” for a global search. There are also sub options like school, city, and so on provided in the search page to specify your search even more.
  • If you know the person’s facebook e-mail address, you can simply type it on the search box and the profile of the concerned person will appear within few seconds.
  • You can also search a person by looking for him/her in your friends’ contact list. This, however, is only possible if you are looking for someone who is a common friend. 
  • If you know that the person whom you are looking for is a great fan of “chocolates”, then you can even search the person in these groups present on facebook. It’s an interesting way to find someone on facebook.
  • Add common friends to your list will make the search easier. For this, all you need to do is find some of your common friends and send them a request. Once accepted, you would get an access to their contact list and thus, find that particular person.
Without Joining Facebook
  • The easiest way to find someone on facebook without joining it is just simply typing the name of a person in the search engine tool such as “Google”. If the person has the facebook account, it will appear in the search.
