When you try to do a picture search sometimes you can’t see the photo if you’re not Facebook friends with the person. I’ll show you how to login to a friend’s Facebook account so you’re able to see a picture.
There are a few methods below, but you will ultimately need the help of one of your friends in order to see the picture.
Facebook Login on Friends Account
The first option is if you have a friend, ask them to login using their email address and password. If you’re on a PC or Mac, click the arrow pointing down at the top right and choose to logout. From there, your friend can enter in their username and password.
If you’re on an iPhone or Android, tap the button at the bottom right that says “more” and scroll to the very bottom and choose to logout of your account. From there, a friend can enter in their email address and password to login and do the picture search.
If your friend is friends with the person who published the photo then you will be able to do a picture search and see the image. Make sure you find someone that’s either friends with whoever published the photo or someone who is tagged.
Facebook Picture Search Trick
One trick to do a Facebook picture search of friends is to type in the friend’s full name in quotes into Google. Then head over to the image tab and you will see all of the photos of your friends that Google has. Depending on the privacy settings of the person’s Facebook account, it may or may not show up.
Another option is to ask the person who published the photo to tag you in the picture. That way you will automatically be able to see the image without going through someone else’s account.
Facebook constantly changes their privacy settings so make sure you keep your privacy settings updated if you don’t want people to be able to see your photos if you’re not friends with them. It’s good to have a bit of privacy to keep creepy people from being able to look at all your photos.
So, searching for your friend’s Facebook pictures is not nearly as difficult as it may seem. It’s always good to get permission if you’re going to use their image because you don’t want them to think you’re stalking them or worse. Most people I know have private accounts which means I’d have to ask them anyway, and it’s a lot easier to find their photos by actually logging into your own account anyway. However, this is a good way to do some research on Facebook photos in general or maybe find that one picture you had with your friend from that last vacation in which you weren’t tagged. Whatever your purpose, I’m sure these tips will help you to accomplish your goal and to become a more efficient Facebook user yourself.
