Facebook has been one of the most used apps in the social media category. It is also one of the earliest social media platforms to exist today still. Whether work-related or your family, you can stay connected every time and anywhere. The world is growing faster, so almost everyone has a smartphone available to them, and it is pretty impossible they haven’t heard about the Facebook app.
Anyone who uses Facebook knows how much crowded a platform it is, where a single post can get lost in a single day. There are many people who post multiple times in a single day, and if you are friends with such people, you may need to check your phone every hour if you do not want to miss out on any posts.

Find Someone’s Comment Using Facebook’s Search Tab
Most people think that the search bar is used only to look for a specific user they might want to connect with. But surprisingly, it has a lot more features than just finding a user. All you need to learn is to put the correct keywords in it. In this part, we will show how it is done.
Step 1: Open the Facebook app on your phone or your computer.
Step 2: On the search bar, type “comments made by ABC” (ABC refers to the person whose comment you want to find).

To make sure what you are looking for, keep the two important things in your mind:
- If the person has a private account and you are not friended with them, you will not be able to see most of their activities. In that case, you can send them a friend request.
- Even if you are friends with them, the visibility of their comments counts upon the privacy settings of the post they have commented on. You can easily view the post if it is set to public view. Even if it is set to friends or friends of friends, you still have a chance to view the post. But if the customized audience does not include you, you can not view them.
