Find a person on Facebook with a photo using TinEye
If you have a photograph of the person you want to find, you are one step away from meeting them. Most people have a Facebook account, currently there are more than 2,4 billion active user accounts.
You just need to have a photo, get their phone number from other social networks like Twitter or Instagram. You can also get it from a Badoo or WhatsApp profile.
Now you need to use one free online tool. It is called TinEye and is widely used for its effectiveness. One of the great advantages of TinEye is that it not only serves to search for people on Facebook, but also allows you to search for that photo on other web platforms and social networks such as Twitter and Instagram.
- Enter the official page of TinEye from any browser, you can do it from your PC or your mobile.
- There is a button on the home screen with an arrow icon pointing up. Click on it to access your PC's file explorer and select the photo of the person you want to search for.
- The process can take some time while searching a database that contains more than 40 billion images. At the fine will show you the results obtained.
- If the search returns many results, you can filter by date and pages in which the image is hosted on. The results will contain links to the locations where the photo is located and a preview of the image.
Note: a times the page indicates that there are no results. This does not mean that the person does not have a Facebook account. It could mean that you don't have access to the photo because it's private.
Find a person on Facebook with the name of a photo
The first thing to consider to find a person with this method is that the name of the photo must have a particular shape. The name of the photo must be structured by three numerical parts separated by an underscore or underscore (_). Eg:
The photos that have a name with this property are from social networks Facebook. Surely someone has downloaded the image associated with the account. If the photo you have of the person doesn't have this feature, this method won't work for you.
Another important point is that the photo posted on the profile must be public to be able to access it. If that person has profile photos in private, it will be impossible to locate them. That said, we can now search for the photo on Facebook.
The first thing to do is to copy the second section of the name of the photo. Just click on the image so you can change the name and select the part of the text that interests us. Copy the text by right-clicking or using the Ctrl + C command.

These numbers represent the name by which the photo is stata hosted on Facebook servers. Now you need to enter the Facebook URL in the address bar followed by a slash and the numbers you just copied and press Enter. The final result should look like this: https://www.facebook.com/10206161373732637
Hopefully, when you load the page, the photo should appear the same photo, but associated with a profile Facebook and he is definitely the person you are looking for.
