How to Find People on Facebook by City/Location

Looking for someone on Facebook but unable to find because of multiple search results? Yes, it happens because whenever we search on Facebook with the name, then it would show a list of all the people having the same name. It becomes a challenging task to find an unknown person by his/her name.

Recently, I was searching for one of my school’s friend on Facebook but could not find it because I got a list of hundreds of people with the same name. So, if you don’t have a proper username, email or Mobile Number of the person, then it won’t be easier for you to find him/her on Facebook.

However, if you’re having some mutual friends with the person whom you’re searching, then there are chances that you may find it easily but finding an unknown person with the name on Facebook is very very difficult.
