Find someone on social networks for free

Here’s how to find someone on social networks for free. But these methods cannot guarantee that all accounts will be found without omission.

1. Upload your contact and sync it

If you know the person’s phone number, you can use this method to find the person’s social media accounts effectively. Many social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook let you find friends by phone number.

Once you save the phone number into contact, then upload your contact into the social media platforms, you’ll get social media accounts as you wish.

Take Instagram as an example, here’s how to find the account by phone number:

1) First save the phone number to your phone’s contacts.

2) Open Instagram and go to your profile page. Tap the Settings icon in the upper right-hand corner.

3) Select Discover people.

4) Tap Connect besides Connect Contacts. Instagram might need you to grant access to Contacts. Tap Allow Access and you can see your contact list.

2. Search across different social media platforms

Most mainstream social media networks like LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter allow you to look up a person by username, phone number, and email address. If you have these social media accounts and have the information, you can find the person’s profile one by one.

If you want to find someone living nearby without a name, phone number, and email address, you can try searching for people nearby.

If you can’t find anything, it’s better to run people search engines like Spokeo and BeenVerified.

3. Search on Google

Google might be the first tool jump to mind when comes to searching information online. Whether it’s a full name, phone number, or email address, Google it. The web search engine giant will show you the list of results from its huge database. You may find an accurate social media account or nothing related.

If you see this message, you’d better find another way to investigate.

That’s all the ways you can use when finding someone on all social networks. Hopefully, this post could help. If you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions, you’re more than welcome to let me know in the comments.
