How to find someone’s social media accounts

We are living in the age of internet and facilities like social media have transformed the world we live in into a global village. With popular social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter, we can stay connected to our loved ones all the time and see what they’re up to in their everyday life.

But this is not the only use of social media, sometimes you see a stranger and what to meet with them, or monitor the activity of your child or a loved one. This is where having a little of advanced knowledge of social media and having the right tools at your disposal can prove very beneficial.

Step one: Getting Some Personal Info:

To trace someone on social media or just send them a friend request, you’ll first need to find their social media profiles. To do this, you’ll need to gather some personal info about the targeted person.

Free to use services like Reverse Phone Lookup can help you a lot in this regard. With this service, you just have to type in anyone’s mobile number and you’ll get all the basic info like their full name, location and address for free. Now once you have all this personal info of the targeted person, we can proceed to the next step.

Step two: Searching For The Person:

Today there are various effective methods to search for a person’s social media profiles with just a little info. Here are some of the best methods that you can try for yourself.

  • Google Image Search:

Some people just know the conventional google search engine that only allows you to type in words in order to conduct any search. But a backdrop of this outdated method is that thousands of people may have the name, and you might end up with thousands of different accounts, to cut it short, this method isn’t going to work anymore.

A better alternative is the google image search option. To start the search, go to and search for the persons full name, you might want to add more personal info (that we got through google reverse image) to narrow down the results. Once you’ve put in all the details, scroll down the page to find that person’s photo, there is a good chance that you’ll find that person through this effective method.

  • Username:

Not better than the google images option, but another method to find a person’s social media profiles is that you can try and get that person’s username on a specific platform and than try to search it.

For this method, you’ll need to know someone near to your target. You can use this method to find social media account of your crush, your children or just a stranger you want to know more about. Note that many people use entirely different usernames than their actual names, and all of them different on different social media accounts.
