If you need to find something on the internet, most likely you use Google search to quickly find what you are looking for. However, in some cases, Google image search can’t help you find exactly what you are looking for.

Or, imagine someone is trying to blackmail you anonymously on WhatsApp or other social media, and you need to find out who is behind it. Can you use Google image search to find the source of the image? Most likely not.

Did you know that there is an image search engine in Facebook? While it is not an official feature, there is a way to use it. Facebook assigns a numerical ID to all photos uploaded onto the social media channel. Any images downloaded from Facebook will have that numerical ID as part of the file name by default. If you know this number, you can use it to find the source of that picture in Facebook. Keep in mind that this method won’t work if the image source is not Facebook. Also, privacy settings might prevent you from accessing the image on a Facebook page if the photo is not public or the owner has blocked you.

To use this method, locate the middle string of numbers in the name of the photo you saved from Facebook. This is the ID number that you will use on Facebook to find the image. Now type HTTP WWF a scoop combo to PHP bid equals into your browser’s address bar. All you have to do is paste the ID number of the image directly after the equals in the address bar and press ENTER to go directly to the photo on Facebook. You can find the profile on which it was posted.

This method can be really helpful if you are in trouble or if you need to help someone else. It is a good way to find out who posted an image on Facebook, even if it was shared by hand to hand. So, next time you need to find someone using a picture on Facebook, give this method a try.
