What is a Facebook People Search?
Out of the billions of people in the world, over 845 million of them are on Facebook
(according to Facebook's press room in February 2011). If that weren't impressive
enough, the social media networking giant, the subject of a major motion picture
in 2010, gains new users every day. And with so many people on the platform, it
makes it a great resource when trying to locate information about people.
A Facebook page is an ideal way to find out information about a person, but first
you have to determine whether they have a page on the website. If they do you can
mine information about them through a process called a Facebook People Search. Basically,
it means that you are going to use data from Facebook to do a people search on someone.
Conducting a Facebook People Search
When many people think of doing a Facebook people search, they think of going to
Facebook itself. While it is certainly possible to do it this way, it can be much
more time consuming than using a people search service such as PeopleFinders.com.
For people who want to try, though, follow the steps outlined below.
- Open an Internet browser and navigate to Facebook's "People Search" page.
- Type the person's name into the "Search for people by name" text box and then press
"Enter" on the keyboard or click the small magnifying glass icon.
- Scroll through the list of names and review the small photo icons on the left side
of the screen.
- If you do not see the person you are looking for, click the "See More Results" link
at the bottom of the screen.
- If you still do not see the results you are looking for, you can try searching again
using different information.
- Once you do the find person, click their name and you will be taken to their page.
Without being logged into Facebook, you'll see a limited amount of information about
the person. Also keep in mind that the information available will depend on each
particular person's privacy settings.
Facebook People Search with PeopleFinders
A much easier process to search people on Facebook is to use the services on PeopleFinders.com.
This is a quick and simple method that will not only grant you all of the information
you could pull manually, but also give you all of the public records associated
with a person that we have in our massive people search database.
One way you could accomplish this is by entering a person's email address into our
Social Profile Report generator.
This will provide you with information such as name, addresses, phone number, photos,
videos and more. If you do not have the email address of the person you are searching
for, you can search for people on Facebook using our traditional people search tools.
Once you find the person you are looking for using that method, you will be presented
with information about the person's Facebook and other social profiles.
Facebook People Search Advantages
A Facebook people search is a great way to gather information about someone because
the information is created by the person themselves. Getting these details from
PeopleFinders is a huge advantage because unlike trying to get the information from
other sources, all you have to do with us is input what you know and we'll take
care of the rest.
