How to Search Facebook Friends by Location, Job, or School

Trying to find your old colleague or school friend is now easier than ever with Facebook’s new search feature, where users can search other Facebook friends by location, job or school, and other predefined criteria. Here’s how you can do it too. 

Facebook is probably the largest social media platform with over 2.6 billion active users. It is a great place to connect with new people, friends, colleagues, and family members. It has now even grown into a huge business place as well. Interestingly, Facebook has made things much easier for users. You can do effortless searches, add new friends, and start conversations right away. However, since it has a huge user base, finding someone randomly might be burdensome.

There might be several users with the same name you are looking for. Sometimes, even when you type in their names, their profile does not appear on the search list. In this case, it might be a little difficult to find that particular person in such a huge list of users. Luckily, Facebook offers a few other efficient ways or, say, search filters to make your search easier. If you are wondering what these filters are and how to use them, you will have all your answers by the end of this article.
