facebook hidden friends
Facebook is one of the biggest and largest social networks. As of today, the social media site has more than a billion users all over the world. Facebook gets different updates around every month, it updates the security and privacy for its user’s profile, and how to hide your friend list even from your friends is one of the privacy features which was added by Facebook lately. Your Facebook friends will be able to only see mutual friends if your friend list is hidden, also the same thing applies to you too if someone hides their friend list.
You may sometimes need to go through someone’s hidden friend list because you may be looking for someone but not able to find them. They may be friends with your friend but you still can’t view the hidden friend list because your friend’s friend list has been set to private. But if you want to view someone’s hidden friend list then you will have to perform a Graph Search of Facebook, that is if you and the profile you are targeting have at least 1 friend in common then the Graph Search will help you to find hidden friends of target profile, sound easy right? Do not worry below is a Google Chrome Extension which will perform the Graph search for you.
How to view Hidden Friend List of your friend on Facebook.
To be able to view Someone’s private friend list on the Facebook account, the following steps will teach you on how to see hidden friend list of your friend on Facebook:
Step 1. Add Facebook Friend Mapper ( link removed ) Extension to your Google Chrome Browser.
Step 2. When you finish adding the Extension, reload the Facebook account. You will get a new tab on Facebook profile of your friend named “ Reveal Friends “
Step 3. All you need to do is tap on Reveal Friends and it will start to scan for their private friend list, it may take time depends on how long their friend list is.
Step 4. After scanning it will show you the Facebook IDs of all their friends in a pop-up window. Now you can scroll through their friend list and check for the friend you are searching for. It does not show their name in search result so you will have to guess that friend by looking at Facebook IDs.
How Facebook Friend Mapper Extension Works?
This extension performs a Graph Search on Facebook by taking your friends’ Facebook ID and one of your Mutual Friend’s Facebook ID.
With this search it shows you common friends of them. It may result in few friends, after getting one or more friend by this search, again it performs a graph search between the Friend’s Facebook ID and the new Facebook IDs, it goes many time and results in the list of private friends of your friend.
Manually it is hard to perform the above task so to automate this process a script is written in the form of Google Chrome extension.
Update:- The Google Chrome Extension has been removed from Webstore but here is the trick I found but it has certain limitation.
The trick is simple like whenever you create a new Facebook profile and send someone a friend request, Facebook does show the recommended profiles to add next as People You May Know. (Recommended profiles always belong to whom you send the friend request).
The trick is to create a new Facebook profile and send the targeted profile friend request and you will get their friends on the recommendation list.
Create a new Facebook profile and send the friend request only to the targeted profile whose Hidden friend list you want to see.
