Have you tried Google Image search? Facebook profile photos are public (for discoverable accounts). If they have used the photo relatively recently a reverse image search may be helpful. From Google Image Search, click the camera icon in the search bar ("search by image"), then choose the option to upload an image. (If you have a modern browser, you can ...

There is no official way to do so. But if you found that picture from web and have not changed the name that file, you can search the id of Facebook profile using the number given in photo file name. For example: suppose you have downloaded that pic from web and it saved as 41480_10738811_7375_n.jpg, so here the middle number i.e. 10738811 is the profile ...

It looks to be a referrer for Facebook's analytics. For example: fref=ts on the end of the URL means that the page was linked from a "Top Search". Basically the user was sent there from a search engine result. fref=nf means that the user arrived from their news feed. I'm thinking that fref=uri means that the user arrived from an external site.

Unlike LinkedIn, this is not possible on Facebook. In fact, Facebook developers are explicitly prohibited from making any application that claim to be able to do so in accordance with the Platform Policy. You can somewhat see who you chat with the most. See http://digiwonk.wonderhowto.com/how-to/track-who-views-your-facebook-profile-0147349/

Once you are blocked on Facebook you are blocked from seeing that person's profile and anything about that person while you are logged into the account that is blocked. However, if you create a second account or have a second account to log into then you can see that person's profile with the second account that is not blocked. As far as the full profile ...

You do it in two steps: Step one: delete it from the Other Phones section and click Save. Step two: add it to the Mobile Phones section and click Save. The thing is to save the edit between deleting it from one section and adding it to another one. (I just tested it and it works.)

You can click on Edit Sections (as explained in Facebook Help) and unclick the Groups item in order to hide it from your About section. However, as stated in that Edit Sections area: If you hide a section, individual stories can still appear on your timeline, in News Feed and elsewhere on Facebook. It seems that it is not possible to totally hide your ...

Facebook says: Unfortunately, we don't support email addresses with generic prefixes like info@, webmaster@, etc. Since email addresses of this nature are typically used for organizations and businesses, we don't allow them to be used for personal Facebook accounts. Please try signing up again using another address that you own. Of course they ...

This should be possible to implement using the API. But keep in mind that Facebook will keep all data within their archives, as far as I know.

No, as of now this kind of function is not available. The only option to delete is one post at a time either using the dropdown menu for a post on your Timeline (click the 'V' in the upper right corner of the post) or in your Activity Log click the pencil icon to the right of an item. If you want delete old posts you can select year, then it will show all ...

You can restrict your employment information only to certain audiences (e.g. fellow employees) and so most of the world will only see your education details without you having to remove anything.

You can't! Facebook won't allow you to hide your profile picture and cover photo (these will be always public, no matter what are you settings). The workaround is to simply change/blur the profile picture, create a fake profile (which isn't allowed) or deactivating your account for some period of time. On Facebook Help Centre we can read: Anyone can ...

Yes, he can. His friends will become subscribers to the new page.

The image Download button does not appear if the image is a Cover Photo (in the 'Cover Photos' album). The Download button appears if the image is not a Cover Photo, even if it's uploaded by a non-Facebook friend. The Chrome extension, FB Album Mod or equivalent User/Greasemonkey script for other browsers like Firefox and Opera, will allow you to download ...

The Download button is still in use, but you will not be able to use it to download photos from "non-friends" that you have on Facebook. This is most likely more of a privacy style feature. To save a photo from someone you are not friends with you could do something like switching to full screen mode and right clicking and saving the picture. This will get ...

Yes, its still there, its now in the "About" section of the profile page under the "Details About You" sub-heading. To edit it, if you hover over the quotes section, an edit link should appear at the top right, simply click it to edit the section.

Yes, it is called your about tab, or just "about" on your Facebook timeline. If you are logged in, go to your own timeline, press about and edit what sections to show and what to show in either section by pressing the pen icon.
