I have a Facebook image on my PC that I saved a while ago and would like to find the author (person who posted it), link to profile or user ID. Is that possible?

I tried the following but without success:

Full image name is: 2431550_1344327517562357_1434551231_n.jpg.

Older Facebook photos could be identified using the IDs stored in here 2431550_1344327517562357_1434551231_n.jpg but this is no longer so for obvious privacy reasons.

So, there will not be a way for you get the owner of this profile just knowing this extension.
