Facebook is the largest social networking website with hundreds of millions of users worldwide. While keeping connected is easy thanks to the platform, you might sometimes receive comments or messages from an account you’ve never contacted before and you would like to verify the person’s identity before you take the conversation forward.

This guide will walk you through how to find out who owns a specific Facebook page, step by step.

1. Check the person’s profile details

Many Facebook users put in information like their school, college, previous and current employment, social media links, etc. when setting up the account. So here are a few things you can do to identify a Facebook owner:

  • The easiest way to find out who the owner is is to send a private message, start a nice conversion and request the information.
  • If your message goes unanswered, you can visit the About section of the Facebook page to see if you can find anything there.

  • You might want to go to About > Contact and basic info and look for links they’ve provided to personal websites, social media pages, etc., to see if you can find additional information on the owner.

If there isn’t much information in the About section, then read on and see how to run a free reverse image search on the Facebook account owner.,

If the Facebook account user has a profile picture, or the owner has ever posted their original pictures, a reverse image search might help you find out their identity.

There are many free tools online that can help you run a reverse image search, such as Google Images,TinEye, and Yandex. We’ll use Google Image for this tutorial, but other tools work pretty much the same. Follow the instructions below:

If you’re using the Chrome browser, just right-click on the picture on the webpage and click Search image with Google Lens. This will show you all webpages that contain the same or similar pictures, which may be the person’s other social media pages.

If you’re using another web browser, just go to Google Images, click on the camera icon, upload the picture you would like to look up or paste the image URL, and hit Search by image.

If the picture you have belongs to a celebrity, Google might show you the person’s name in the search results. If it belongs to a random person who you barely know, you might be able to find the person’s social media page where the same picture is posted.
