Facebook is one of the largest and most popular social networks with more than 2 billion users. It allows you to stay in touch with your friends and family, you can share what’s on your mind, play games, and many other things. If you have been looking for the official Facebook image search feature and you didn’t find it is simply because there is no option to do that. But, there are some other methods to turn to.
There are some things you should keep in mind. You can find only the profiles that are public, so if the profile is locked it will be out of reach. To find the image you can go for the option to use the number each photo on Facebook gets, or you can do a reverse search in Google.
When you know the number that Facebook assigned to a photo, you will be able to find the source (if the privacy settings allow it). Here is what you need to do:
- Find the image and right-click on it
- Next, click on Open image in new tab
- When the new tab opens, you will see the numbers in the address bar
- Open another window and type https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid= into address bar
- Then copy the set of numbers for the image after the =
- Hit enter
- You will be taken on the profile where the image was posted.
You can go for the option of reverse image search on Google. Here is what you need to do:
- Find the image you want and right-click on it
- Next, click Search Google for image
- When you do this, a new tab will open in the browser
- Next, remove the text that will show up in the search box
- Replace that text with site:facebook.com and hit Enter
Now you can take a look and see if one of the profiles listed belongs to the person you are trying to find.
