Facebook Friend Search
Facebook Friend Search
Facebook being the King of Social Media today, it has completely changed the way most people see Social Media in this generation. When Social Media first became popular was mostly a teenager thing, now adults have got in on it. Why? Because of Facebook Friend Search of course. In using the Facebook Friend Search, you can locate people that may have slipped out of your life. People that without Facebook Friend Search you may have never made contact with again. The vast majority of people today no longer have land lines, so calling information and asking for someone’s phone number is obsolete. Ten years from now children that are in kindergarten will have no idea what a landline phone ever was. Social media is our best way of finding long lost family members, people from high school or just meeting new friends.
Facebook Friend Search is the way to do this, especially since all you have to do is type in a name in the search bar. Now you may get back a plethora of names from a vast amount of places many you can eliminate quickly. Facebook Friend Search will pull up the correct spelling of the name that you have typed in first and location if you added one. If you have exhausted all of the suggestions it came up with then Facebook Friend Search will start to pull up the names that are a close match as suggestion to choose from. When you get to that point you may as well give up, it is probably not going to happen. What you can always try with Facebook Friend Search is to find a mutual friend and search through their friend’s list and see if they pop up there.
Not so friendly part of friend search
One of the aspects of Facebook Friend Search that is not all that friendly is the “people you may know” section. This just randomly pops up more and more when you are on Facebook. You do not even need to use Facebook Friend Search, and you have all these friends of friends or strangers scrolling across your screen. More often than not you have no desire to be friends with any of these people. Seeing as Facebook does have a Facebook Friend Search and other search tools it is confusing as to why this is even a necessary feature. Actually, it is more of a nuisance.
