Facebook image search is a technique used to find the profile of a Facebook user by using photo ID, advanced Facebook search, or reverse image search. In this post, you will learn how to find someone on Facebook using Facebook image search and how to save Facebook photos.

How to Do a Facebook Image Search

Here are two methods to help you find the Facebook profile of a particular person. One is using the Google image search engine, the other is using the Facebook advanced search.

Use Google image search engine

If you want to find a Facebook profile with a picture, you can use the Google image search engine to find more details about the person. Here’s how to find person by picture on Facebook:

Step 1. Open the Google Images website: images.google.com.

Step 2. Click on Search by image (the camera icon) and then paste the image URL or upload the image from your computer.

Step 3. Enter “site:facebook.com” in the search bar and hit the Enter key. Then it will only show the matching results from facebook.com.

First, check the Facebook pages that include the matching image. If you can’t find the profile of the Facebook user, browse these visually similar images and find the person you want to know. Then click on the image to visit the Facebook profile.
