Find Facebook Profile Through Image URL


It might have happened with you that one of your friends shared an image URL with you from facebook and you liked the image so much that you wanted to find the facebook profile of the person who actually shared it. So in this post i am going to tell you how you can find the profile of the person who shared the image using the URL only.

#Method:

- Firstly copy the image URL your friend shared with you somewhere. (like in notepad).
For example: the link shared is
http://sphotos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/395011_296213017144925_709418796_n.png

- Now if you carefully see the URL you will notice that after the last slash ( / ) there are some numbers separated by underscore ( _ ). So copy the second number just after the first underscore ( _ ). This is the facebook id for the image shared with you.
For example: In our case copy
296213017144925

- Now in the address bar type: facebook.com/the-number-you-copied and press enter.
For example:
facebook.com/296213017144925


- Now you will be redirected to the image's page on facebook with the link to the profile of the sharer just below the image.


- Click on the profile name and you will reach the profile of the person who actually shared the image.

    To get to the profile you need to open the album which contains the picture but the album is private so you cannot open the profile of the person using this image so try another image :)

    as i mentioned before also, the reason could be that the album which contains this image is not public so you can't open the album and hence the profile.

    Is there a way to find the profile so that one may send a friend request?

  7. @above
    if you are not blocked by the person then you can definitely search for his profile. Either you can search using a image as mentioned in this post or use his email address or search directly by name but if you search by name then chances depends on how close that friend is to you...I mean more mutual friends you and that person have, more are the chances.....remember if you are blocked you cannot send friend request

    I believe this has changed, the middle number now goes to the photo itself and not the profile. If you right click over your profile photo > copy link address, then paste it somewhere, you will see a long string of numbers. Something like this (fake):
    fbid=101577256598494860&set=a.432652996659059.2137942.5118809089&type=1
    the number after the last period (5118809089) is your ID number. IF you compare this with your photo filenames you will see that there is no way to figure this number out from the filename.

  9. @above

    the method is still the same..only the link has changed. I have updated the post.

    How Can I found Facebook address Using this [565425_326602587447161_322400479_n]

  11. @above

    you cannot find using the link you specified.
    reasons:
    1. may be the album which contains this image is no longer available.. I mean deleted.
    2. The album which contains this image is not public means only people with whom the album is shared can only view it.

    Look only for images that are public.

  15. @Anonymous

    it looks like the image is still available on the server but the page which shared this image is removed so you cannot find the page now

  16. In case if I have an image in my system then How can I search/find a profile associated with this image?

  17. @Technology Trap

    There is no direct trick to find profile with such image that is present in your system but you can still try your luck by using images.google.com

    But i must say the chances are very very less.

    I created an automated tool to find pictures based on filenames or URL links.
    Facebook Profile to Picture

    I wanted to create a little tool for myself, and seeing all the comments asking for help, I decided to give it a nice interface and make it public. (I made it in PHP.)
    Thank you for sharing this information with me, and I hope you enjoy the evolution of your blogpost.
