If you're on Facebook, and you'd like to find someone you're not friends with, here's how you can do it.
- Go to the find your friends on Facebook page. You have a number of options here: find people you know by email, find people you know by last name, find people on your IM (instant messenger) list, browse for people alphabetically (this is somewhat tedious) or browse Facebook pages by name.
- Use your Facebook friends as a resource. Click on their Friends and choose the "See All" option to scroll through their list of friends. This is a great way to find someone in common that you might have forgotten about.
- Use the Facebook Suggestions link (found to the right of your news stream) as a jumping off point. You'll not only see potential friends and fan pages here, but if you scroll down a little, you'll also see an opportunity to search within your groups: college, high school, workplace, camps, etc.
