How to search for people on Facebook by age

You signed up to Facebook hoping to be able to find, and therefore contact, all your former school friends. You don’t know how many of these people are registered on the social network, but you would still like to give it a try, searching for them based on their date of birth, as you fear you might not remember their names and surnames exactly.

If this is the case and, therefore, if you are wondering how to search for people on Facebook by age, you will be happy to know that you are by reading the tutorial that’s right for you. However, I must inform you that Facebook does not allow you to carry out advanced searches to find people based on their age; However, by implementing the procedures that I will illustrate in the next chapters, you will still be able to succeed in your intended aim by using the social network’s search engine.

I wish you a good read and I wish you good luck in your search!

Preliminary information

How to search for people on Facebook by age

As anticipated, before explaining how to search for people on Facebook by age I must remind you that the social network does not provide a search filter by age or year of birth.

However, it is precisely by using the social network’s search engine that it is possible to find people on Facebook, filtering the search with the other parameters made available, such as school or university, as well as the city and the work.

By making use of these tools, you can therefore alternatively succeed in the aim you have set yourself. Furthermore, by following the instructions that I will provide you in this tutorial, once you have identified the profile of the user you are interested in, you can explore their information on the profile, so we can see your date of birth, if this information is public< a i=6>.

By doing this you will have a greater chance of finding the profiles of the people you are looking for on Facebook and will therefore be able to send them a friend request. All clear? Yes? Great, let’s get started then!
