Find the Facebook profile from a direct image link

by Ruchira on May 20, 2013


See the link above? Yes its a direct link to a Facebook photo as most of you might have recognized at the first glance. You can see these links everywhere, or your friend might send you this type of direct link to a Facebook photo because He/She doesn’t want to know the profile of the person who posted the photo to the Facebook. So is there any way to find the profile of the person who owns the photo?

Yes you can.  Its very easy so don’t do that same mistake again by sending the direct link to an image if you are concerned about privacy. Let’s see the aforementioned link again

Notice the last part of the link which is after the last trailing slash


Numbers in the middle of this part represents the owner of the photo


Copy that part and visit on your web browser , Replace the X with the number,

Did you actually try this? I can’t even get it to work with photos from my own profile, let alone some unknown profile.
