I have heard from some folks that they have a bit of a hard time finding people on Facebook. So if you are looking for someone and you want to see the photos that they take, how do you do that? So we are just going to review that quickly. I know you probably have tried it before. I'm just going to show you a couple of tips and then I'm going to show you a way to look for specific types of albums on Facebook using Google. So we have get two things to go through here. Let's start out with looking for a person, so I want to look for a friend.
I'm pretty sure she is on Facebook and I want to see some of her photographs, so I want to find her. So I'm just going to type in the name, Sonya Webb, and I want to Search Facebook, so I'll click on that and so I'm going okay, oh my gush, look at how many Sonya Webbs there are? There is actually three pages of Sonya Webb' and then some of them don't even have a picture or a location. So I'm going to have to refine my search a little bit and this is the key to searching on Facebook, is refining that search.
So I'm going to go down here to the bottom and I have a couple of ways to do that. If I happen to know Sonya's email, I can enter that in here and that's a great way. That way works very well if you know the email. In this case, I can't remember her email, but I do remember that she went to Cal Poly. So maybe I can search by School and refine that search. So I'm going to write Cal Poly. That's what I want to do. Let's see if just by adding this additional condition, if that gets me where I want to go, and so now we'll go Search and there she is. That is exactly whom I'm looking for, Sonya Webb here in Ventura.
So we are finding their search a lot of times will really help you get where you want to go. So you either need to know the email or the school, something like that, to help you out. Now if you want to look for a specific type of photo album on Facebook, I have another really nice little trick for you. I'm going to hit Command+T here and I'm going to open up a new tab, and we are just going to go to Google, and here's the string. And this is a specific string in quotes. Basically you type site: facebook.com inurl:album and then you add a keyword for what you are looking for.
So in these cases say that if I would like to see puppy photos, so I'm going to type the keyword puppy and then I'll do a Google search. So site:facebook.com inurl:album and then whatever keywords you want to add. What Google does then, it will return Facebook Albums, best that it can. You know as Facebook, Facebook, Facebook, Facebook - here we go. All sorts if stuff.
So let's take a look at our top result there. And I mean how irresistible is that? So right away that takes you to a puppy photo that's inside of Facebook, and we can try one more, and I'll hit Back here. And oh, very cute puppy. How can you resist a very cute puppy? So let's try that in Facebook. Oh my gosh, they are right about that. Very, very cute puppy. Okay, so this is a way that you can look for specific types of photos within Facebook. And here is the string right here. You just type that into Google search field, you add whatever keywords that you want, and off to the races you go. It works really well.
