Nowadays Facebook is far more than a social network.. It is like a digitized world.
We are getting the opportunity to know more about the feelings of our friends, neighbors, relatives through facebook platform. It is a good way to stay connected with people in this fast-pacing world where time is precious.
Now its easy for us to know whats happening around us in our town, where our neighbors are going, what our friends are doing, what our buddies are watching and what not!! All this is possible without stepping out from home. That’s the power of social network.
Search facebook profiles by Name and City
Now the question is.. Is it possible to search for people by just knowing their name or city?
The answer is YES!
Facebook has an advanced search feature that allows us to search for facebook profiles with help of their name, location, work, or interests. You can use the person name + any of these parameters to get accurate result.
How to perform the search?
- Login to your account as usual.
- Click on the search box (appears at the top of facebook) and search like this…
Syntax: people named FIRST NAME (or) LAST NAME who live in CITY NAME
Example #1: people named brian who live in belleville, michigan
Example #2: people named hawkins who live in alaska
Example #3: people named krishna who works at Google (If you know where a person is working, you can search like this also)
Here is the result for Example #1
There I found my friend Brian D Hawkins as well as other strangers who are having the same name and living in Michigan. I would get Brian Hawkins profile even if he wasn’t my friend.
See how easy and accurate it is?
If you do not see the person you are looking for, then he might not be using facebook (or) you have searched with the wrong details.
Search facebook with Native Place
Facebook has two locations specified for each profile. One is “Lives in XYZ” which means he is currently living in XYZ Location. Second one is “From XYZ” which means the person’s native is “XYZ”.
Now the problem is, some people may have ABC as their native place and XYZ as living location. It means he is not living in his native place currently. In such cases, if you know the native place, then you have to search like “People named Krishna from XYZ”.
We hope you understood how the search works.
