How to Find a Facebook Profile From Just a Picture

Did you have picture of someone and want to know more about them? Maybe you'd like to know their name, birth date, email address, where they work, or if they're single.

How to Find a Facebook Profile From Just a Picture

Using the method described below, you may be able to find their Facebook profile, and if they've made the information you want public, you'll find the answers you're looking for.

Is this creepy? Only if you're a creep.

The Not So Easy Method

This method isn’t difficult per se, but it’s not as effective as the Google reverse image search. It’s limited because it will only get you results if the person has made their Facebook profile public for everyone to see.

If their profile is private, so are their pictures. Therefore, you won’t find anything. Not to sound pessimistic, that’s just how things are. In either case, follow the instructions to find Facebook profiles using pictures from Facebook:

  • Open a picture on Facebook in order to find the profile from which it originated
  • Look at the number after the https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid= line in the URL of the picture. In our example, this number is 1011100762386533.
  • This is the Facebook picture ID number. After we added the picture ID after the URL above, this is what we got https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10111007623865331. It turns out the picture we looked up belongs to the profile of none other than Mark Zuckerberg.
