Facebook is one of, if not, the biggest social media platform in the world today. With well over 2.2 billion active users a month, chances are most of your friends and family already have an account. While Facebook is a place where people can meet and connect, it can also be a great place to find someone. Sure, you won’t receive the same detailed information like you would with an online people search engine, but it’s a start. Unfortunately, to use Facebook’s search bar, you have to be logged into an account. This can be an issue if you don’t already have one, or if you’ve forgotten your password. Or maybe you’re in a hurry and don’t want to waste time signing in. Whatever the case may be, you’re in luck. Below we’ll discuss how you can Facebook search for people without logging in.
Ways To Facebook Search Without Logging In
When it comes to Facebook searching, there are several different ways you can go about it. Whether you’re looking for a specific person, page, or Facebook group, any of the methods below can help you find what you’re looking for. Please note that your search results may vary depending on the individuals privacy settings. And while there’s no way to get around these privacy settings on Facebook, you can use Kiwi Searches to help you find the information you’re looking for.
Option 1: Google Search Engine
Google is everyone’s favorite search engine, but did you know you can actually use it to search for people on Facebook as well? The process is simple. Just enter this simple search query (site:facebook.com “Name/Page/Event”) into the search bar on Google’s homepage and in an instant, you’ll receive pages upon pages of results. The only downside is, there’s no efficient way to filter your results. So, you might have to navigate through several pages worth of results before finding the correct person, page, or group you’re looking for.
Option 2: Facebook Public URL
As you may have noticed, there’s no way to access Facebook’s people search bar without signing into your account first. Fortunately, there is a workaround that will allow you to run a public search. That being said, this method is slightly more technical than the previous Google search query. But it’s still easy to do once you have the correct URL and know what to change. Start by entering the following URL into your address bar (https://www.facebook.com/public/). Once you’ve reached this page, enter the name you want to search for at the end of the URL. Make sure you separate the first and last name with a “-” dash mark. Altogether, the URL in your address bar should look something like this: https://www.facebook.com/public/nicole-burgess
While this is certainly a good way to Facebook search for people without logging in, this method also suffers from the same issue as the Google method. Mainly no way to filter your results. Because of this, you may end up having to scroll down the page for a while before finding the person you’re looking for (especially if you’re searching for a common name!)
If you’ve tried both of the above options and are still unable to find the person you’re looking for, try running a person search instead. Simply enter the name of the individual you’re looking for and in minutes, you’ll receive a full background report on them. This background check will include any social media accounts the person has, including their Facebook profile. You can even filter your search results so you can easily find the right person without having to scroll through pages of results.
