If you’re having trouble finding someone you want to add as a friend, you can filter by their city, education, work and mutual friends.
To search for a friend by name:
- Open Facebook and enter your friend’s name in the search bar at the top.
- Click People at the top.
- Under the Filter Results menu on the left you can choose to filter by city, education, work and mutual friends.
Depending on the filters you select, you may need to enter more of your friend’s info. You can apply as many filters to your search as you’d like.
Note: When you search for friends by their networks, some people may not show up, depending on their privacy settings for the About section of their profile.
