Below are the steps you can take to find someone on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Before getting started, we would suggest you not expect too much from this method as you keep searching but end up finding nothing.

Most social media apps allow users to search for contacts.

On Instagram

If you know that person’s user name on Instagram, things would become much easier. Simply open your Instagram app, tap on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom. Then type the username into the search field. Then switch to the Accounts tab. Scroll through the results until you find the account you’re looking for.

However, on Instagram, you cannot search someone by an email or phone number.

2. Search your mutual friends

If your friend is also following that person, you can open your friend’s profile and search that person from your friend’s Followers or Following list.

On Facebook

1. Use the built-in search tool

If you have someone’s phone number, email or username, you can tap on the magnifying glass icon located on the upper right and enter the information you get.

2. Find someone on Facebook by phone number

If you have that person’s phone number saved on your smartphone, you can easily find their profile by syncing th econtact book with Facebook:

  1. Open your Facebook.
  2. Tap on the Menu icon (three lines) on the upper-right corner. Then select Find Friends.

On Twitter

If you have that person’s name or username, tap on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom and type in the name. Your results will be filtered by Trending, News, Sports, Fun, Entertainment, and more.
