There are several ways, thanks to which you can find the desired user in the social network Facebook. Most often a person is found by name or nickname, phone number or email. It happens that he is present in the list of mutual friends. Then you just need to send a friend request or write a private message.


Why can't a person be found

If you can't find the person you're looking for using Facebook search, it could be for one of the following reasons:

  1. He is simply not registered on the social network. Then you need to find out where he may have his account, ask friends and acquaintances. It may be possible to find his contacts to contact him by phone or through one of the messengers.
  2. This person is blocked by you. And you simply forgot about it. In this case, you need to review the list of blocked users and find the person you are looking for.
  3. You have entered incorrect search terms and cannot find the person you are looking for. Check the correct spelling of first name, last name, nickname. If you don't remember exactly, try different variants. 
  4. The input data is not accurate enough. For example, there may be thousands of people with the same first and last name in a social network. Specify something else, such as age, city and country of residence, some additional data and repeat the search query.
  5. The user you're looking for has blocked you or set restrictions in your privacy settings. If you know them, ask them to review their settings and allow you access. If you don't know him or her, contact him or her through mutual friends.

Be flexible and patient in your search for the right person, give yourself enough time and you're sure to find them, even among hundreds of millions of users.
