With 400 million members, Facebook is a nice place for you to reconnect with your classmates, coworkers, or old friends, and it is also a good platform for you to make new friends.

If you have installed the Facebook application in your mobile phone, then you can search your phonebook and see if any of your contacts are on Facebook too.

The above 5 ways are based upon Facebook’s inbuilt search functions, you can just log in and start the search, or you can install any of below 5 applications and find people on Facebook:

6. Would You Sleep With Me

With the application Would You Sleep With Me, you can search Facebook members by gender, age and country.

7. Meet New People

The application Meet New People will let you search Facebook users in your country by gender.

8. Compare Hotness

Compare Hotness also lets you search Facebook members in your country by gender.

9. Online People

With the Online People application, you can search online Facebook members by age, country, relationship status, gender and/or city.

Because of their powerful search functions, the above four applications are the most popular Facebook dating applications.

10. Advanced Search 2.0 beta

With the application Advanced Search 2.0 beta, you can search Facebook members by age, gender, country and many other terms as you can see from the above image, but the search results may be not correct.

All the above five applications are limited by the numbers of Facebook profiles in their database, you can’t get the completed search results, so it’s still far from perfect to find people on Facebook.

Do you have any better ways to find people on Facebook?

    Wow, I thought this was a real resource for finding people on FB, but turns out it is a con, to get people to go to unsavory websites you sponsor. Shame on you loser!

    A member I want to delete from a Facebook Group is not showing up on the members list. And he keeps taunting and abusing the group asking us Admins to remove him, which we can’t because he is not showing up on the member list. And it seems like he is adding more vicious members to the group now and they are abusing members. The admins have reported to FB and when we block them we are not able to see their posts but the remaining group members can, and it’s even tougher then! What is happening?
