When you join Facebook, you will have a lot of options for finding your friends. People who aren’t on Facebook can be personally asked to join and become friend on Facebook. Then, after you add your friends to Facebook, you can communicate and interact with them through your Facebook account. Users may not let you search for them on Facebook, so you may not be able to find them. To connect with your friends on Facebook, follow the steps in this tutorial.
Using the Facebook Search Bar
1 Go to the Facebook search bar.
You’ll see this bar in the upper left-hand corner of your home page. Searching for a person on Facebook is easy with the help of the site’s search bar. Even if you don’t know their last name, you can still use it to find them.
The search results are based on what you have said in your profile.
2 Type your friend’s name into the search bar.
Start typing, and Facebook will start giving you the most likely answer to your question based on your profile information. Facebook is more likely to show you friends who live in your city or country or go to the same college or work.
The more information Facebook has about you, the better it will be able to find what they want to see when they search.
3 Include relevant detail.
Add the city, college, job, or another place where your friend lives or works if you can’t find them by their name. If you do this, you may have to narrow down your search.
4 Type your friend’s email address into the search bar.
It’s also possible to type your friend’s email address into the search bar.
If you type in their email address, only their profile will show up if it’s the same one they have linked to their Facebook account.
5 Add them.
As soon as you have found the correct profile, click on it. Then, on their profile page, click the “Add Friend” button at the top to send them a friend request.
This person could be your long-lost or new friend, someone you haven’t seen in a while, or someone else you know. It’s polite to send them a message with your request.
Help them remember who you are so they don’t say no by accident.
Importing your Email Contacts into Facebook
1 Click on “Find Friends” at the top-right of any Facebook session.
When the page is refreshed, “People You May Know” will show up on the screen. Facebook will use the information you put in your profile to come up with the list.
Friends you didn’t think of might be on this list.
You can also use this list if you can’t remember the name of someone.
2 Navigate to the “Add Personal Contacts” box.
It is on the right-hand side of the screen. This box will show you the email address that is currently linked to your account.
3 Import your email contacts.
Facebook gives you instructions on how to import your email contacts from the email address of your choice. You can follow them. The directions will vary depending on your email service provider.
For example, if you use Gmail, you will need to log in to your Gmail account, click on “Export,” and choose the contacts you want to send to Facebook.
4 Browse the friend suggestions provided to you by Facebook.
Facebook will look for your friends based on the email addresses and names that you have stored in your email account.
How to Recover Your Facebook Account
If you lost your password, what should you do now? You were hacked. Here’s how to get back into your Facebook account with proven ways to get back into your account.
As a step-by-step guide, we’ll show you how to get back in touch with your Facebook account.
Facebook has a lot of automated ways for you to get back into your account. Most of them are based on what you did when setting up your account. That might not be possible if you haven’t done that or if the information is outdated.
However, we will show you one way to get back to your computer when all other methods don’t work.
The first thing you need to do is click on “Forgot your account?” on the Facebook login screen.
You will be asked to look for your account by phone or email.
If you type in your email address, you will have the option to receive the code via email.
After you choose an email address, you will get a 6-digit number. Enter it in the box below.
If you no longer have access to the email account you used to set up your Facebook account, you can’t get back into your account this way. Read also; Metaverse Pioneers Unimpressed by Facebook Rebrand
Sadly, you will neither be able to access your account by typing in your phone number, as Facebook suggests sending you a code via email. And if you don’t have access to that email address, you reached a dead end.
Recovering your Facebook password through a friend
Even though this method takes a little more work, the good news is that you can actually use another account to get your account back.
Either ask a friend to help you with this, or just make a new Facebook account and do it from there. Read more; Facebook bans developer behind Unfollow Everything tool
Visit the Facebook page of your lost account. Then click on the three dots next to the “Message” option and then click on “Report.”
Choose the “Something else” option.
When you get to the next menu, choose “Recover this account.”
In the next screen, Facebook will ask you for an email (or a phone number if you’ve added one) where they can send you an authentication code. The email address is the one you’ve used to register the account or a secondary email address you’ve added along the way.
If you used the email or phone option, you will get an authentication code from the message they sent to you.
Type this confirmation code in Facebook’s recovery form.
Then, Facebook will ask you to set up a new password.
After you set up your password, you will be asked if you want to be logged out of all of your devices at the same time.
This is very important because even though you changed your password and got your account back, the malicious hacker is still logged into your account and can keep posting from it.
We strongly suggest you click the “Log out of other devices” option
It’s done! You should have recovered your account.
If after following these steps you are still unable to access the email you used to register your account, then chances are your Facebook account is lost for good.
