How to Search for a Phone Number on Facebook

If you do not know what Facebook is, it is a social media website designed to keep people connected throughout the world. It provides users with people's birthdays, personal photographs, phone numbers, business information, and more. However, this information can only be obtained if you are 'friends' with the person on Facebook.

To become 'friends' with a person on Facebook, you need to type their first and last name into the search bar, and their profile should pop up. Then click the 'add friend' button. You then have to wait for them to accept your request.

Once they accept your request, you can see all of their personal information that they allow their friends to see. For example, if you added a long time friend from elementary school on Facebook, you will be able to gather their email and phone number.

(disclaimer not everyone puts their phone numbers on Facebook, it is a choice)

Here is how you assemble your companion's data on Facebook:
  • Tap on the username
  • On their page, click the 'about' tab.
  • This will take you to an essential data page.
  • If the individual has tweaked their security settings, their telephone number may or may not appear.
What Else Can You Do?

If you and the person are not friends on Facebook or they do not have their number on the website, it might make it hard to contact your friend via phone. The site GladiKnow can assist you if you are unable to find your friend's phone number. This website is easy to use and only requires you to type in your friend's name into their search engine. In seconds, you will obtain all kinds of information on your childhood friends, such as an address, marital status, phone number, emails, and more. Unlike Facebook, GladiKnow is not limited to information.
