How To Find Your Contacts On Facebook

Facebook, the world’s largest social network, enables you to connect with friends, family and even, sometimes, people you have lost touch with. One of the features that many users find helpful is the ability to import their contacts from their mobile device or email account. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of finding your contacts on Facebook.

Importing Mobile Contacts to Facebook

It’s quite easy to import your contacts from your smartphone to Facebook. The first thing you need to do is download and install the Facebook app if you haven’t done so already. Then follow these steps:

  1. Open the Facebook app on your phone.
  2. Tap on the “Menu” button (three horizontal lines icon).
  3. Scroll down and tap on “Settings & Privacy”, then “Settings”.
  4. Under the “Media and Contacts” section, tap on “Upload Contacts”.
  5. Finally, tap on “Turn on” to start uploading your contacts to Facebook.


Your contacts’ phone numbers will be added to the “Contacts” section of your Facebook account. You can choose to disable this option at any time in the “Upload Contacts” section of the settings.

Finding Email Contacts on Facebook

If you have an email account like Yahoo, Outlook, or Google, you can import your contacts from these accounts to Facebook. Here is how:

  1. On your computer, open Facebook and go to the “Find Friends” page.
  2. Under “Add Personal Contacts”, select your email service provider.
  3. Enter your email login details and give Facebook permission to access your contacts.
  4. Once Facebook retrieves your contacts, you can choose who you’d like to add as friends.


Facebook will list your email contacts who are on Facebook and suggest them as friends.

Both of these methods can help you find your contacts on Facebook, creating a more connected and engaging social media experience. However, it’s important to respect the privacy of your contacts and only add those who you think would appreciate the connection.

Finding your friends on Facebook can be a fun and exciting process, as you can rediscover old connections and start new ones. Remember to engage with your friends in a positive and genuine way to maintain these relationships.
