Go to the Find Friends page to find people you may know. In your news feed and alerts, you may also see suggestions for individuals you know. Click on any of these connections to view their profile. If they haven't connected with you yet, you will be able to send messages directly from the page.
Follow these steps to discover these people:
In such situation, you may use Facebook's search criteria to locate a friend on your list. If you and the person you're looking for worked at the same place, you may use the Work filter to find them. To do so, navigate from your profile page to friends, but this time choose "Work" from the menu. The default view shows you all of your friends who have posted something on their profile page. However, if you'd like to see only those people who work at the same company as you, use the "Office location" drop-down menu to select a state or province, then click the Search button.
This is how it works. Facebook's app and mobile site (m.facebook.com) feature a new page called "Find Friends Nearby," which can be found at facebook.com/ffn. It's a little difficult to find—touch on the features list, slide down to the Apps area, and hit on Find Friends, then Other Tools. You may then select "Find Friends Nearby."
The Find Friends Nearby tool lets you input an address or location and it will return friends of those friends who are also located near by. The tool uses your email address book to find friends within range of where you enter the address.
You can use this tool to locate friends with similar interests, all within walking distance of each other. For example, if you want to find friends who like hiking but don't want to travel too far, put in a city center that has many trails nearby and see what comes up!
You can filter results by gender and age range, and there are various ways to view friend lists: alphabetically, by popularity, or custom.
Finding friends online is often more difficult than it seems, but these tools provide a useful service for those who know exactly what they're looking for.

Unfortunately, there is no foolproof technique to find out who is searching for you on Google, Facebook, or the Internet in general. Don't believe applications or websites that promise to be able to tell you this. They can't and they aren't required by law to tell you anything.
Enter your friend's name into the search bar at the upper left of your account. If you don't see them in the initial dropdown list, go to the bottom of the list and choose "Find all individuals called "___" or "Search Facebook. " This will provide you with further information on each individual with that name.
