First, pick who you want to look for. We'll take Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, as an example. In the Facebook search field, type "pictures liked by Mark Zuckerberg" and press enter. Following that, you'll be sent to a website with some of your chosen person's favorite images. At the bottom of the screen, click "See more." That will take you to an alphabetized list of every post Mark has ever made.
Now that you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, let's go over how to find it. First, click on the "Search" button in the top-right corner of Facebook's desktop site. This will open up a new tab where you can type out a phrase or word and see what comes up in the news feed.
For example, if I wanted to see what was happening at Apple right now, I could type "apple event" and see what shows up in my news feed from friends who like Apple products.
There are two types of results when you search: posts and events. Posts are anything from photos to links to status updates while events are special occasions such as a birthday or anniversary. They're marked with a red dot in the top-left corner of your screen and will show up in both searches.
To see more specific results, add keywords in between quotation marks.
Now, due to Facebook's graph search, you can easily see all of the photographs that you, your friends, and even some celebrities have liked throughout the years. Here's how to view all of the photographs liked by someone on Facebook. Then type "Mark Zuckerberg" plus the name of the person you're searching for in the Facebook search bar. For example, if we wanted to see what pictures Zuckerberg has liked over the years, we would type "Mark Zuckerberg" and then "liked." A list of results will appear with links back to the original page where each result was found. Click on any result to go back to its detail page. Here, you can see which images are linked to other stories on the web and tagged meaning those people also like them.
All done? Great! Now, try searching for some people not yet on your friend list. The feature is currently available only in the United States, but it's easy to see why this would be very useful for researchers, photographers, or just fans of old photos.
Although there is no official Facebook image search option, there are several strategies you may attempt if you want to discover someone by their photo. You may identify the linked profile on Facebook by using the number Facebook provided to a photo that was posted by someone else, or you can run a reverse search in Google for a Facebook photo.
Images that appear here were uploaded by people in your contact list. You can also use this method to see photos that others posted about people in your contact list.
All Posts Can Be Found In a web browser, navigate to Facebook.com. Sign in with your Facebook account if you aren't immediately logged in. Select the search field. The search field is positioned at the top of your screen in a blue bar. In the search field, type a keyword. You will be able to search for all persons, posts, and photographs. Press the Enter key on your keyboard. All the results will appear in a list.
You must enter your email address or phone number as well as your password.
You can also use specific details about people in your life to search for them. For example, if you want to find all posts made by a particular friend, click their name in the friends list, then click the search box. Type the first letter or two of each name until your search returns a list of friends. Click on each name to see what they have posted recently.
Log in to your own profile to see those sites. Enter "pages liked by people who like [your page name]" in the Graph Search field. The results display all of the other pages that your target audience has liked. Facebook Graph Search can help you identify pages that your target audience enjoys. In addition to seeing what types of content attract your target audience, you can also learn from their likes. For example, if a fan page for a sports team promotes sporting goods stores, then perhaps they want to promote that page to get more fans.
Tap your name in the blue stripe at the top of any Facebook page to go there. When you arrive at your profile, click the View Activity Log icon to the right of your profile image. Click the "Likes" button in the left column of the screen to filter your log so you only see the content you liked. Repeat for other users or use the search box at the top of the page.
