Keyword Game & Use Filters

You may search up to 1,000 keywords from your Facebook profile in any language using just words, phrases, or emojis, and you will get a list of related comments with the selected keyword you mentioned in your search. You need to enter a word or a combination of words to type your main keyword in the search field, and you’re good to go.

Filter results by Your Friends, Your Groups and Pages, or Public Posts by selecting Posts From. To filter your results on the mobile app, hit the filter icon in the upper-right corner.

You won’t be able to view much of this person’s activity if they aren’t a Facebook friend and have a private account. Even if this individual is a Facebook friend, the accessibility of their comments is determined by Facebook’s privacy settings.

Keyword Game

Suppose the ‘posts commented by’ keyword doesn’t give you the required results, try changing the keyword. Instead of the same use, ‘posts liked by’ or ‘shared by’ in the search bar of your brother or application.

Therefore once you are on Facebook either through the phone app or the browser, instead of searching for ‘posts commented by _ person’, search for ‘posts shared or liked by _ person’.

Following option

Facebook gives its users an option to follow the activities of the people they find interesting.

Sign in through the browser or the app and look for the person’s profile.

Now that you can see their profile, click on the follow button that you see on their timeline. This is the case where you aren’t included in their friends list on Facebook.

If you are, then the moment you accept their request, you happen to follow them and their engagements on social media.

Turn on notifications

Another way of being alerted each time they do something is to go to settings and turn your notifications on for that particular person.

Go to their profile and click on the three horizontal dots that you see. The box will drop down and select the option of turn notifications on.

Therefore whenever they comment on a post or share some image, Facebook will notify you immediately and you’ll be aware of their social media movements.


If you are friends with someone, simply by going through their timeline on their profile will be enough to find what you are looking for.

Thus, log in through the browser or phone app and type the said person’s name in the search bar.

After catching the matched profile, click on it and you’ll find yourself on their timeline where you can see their posts, their activities – basically their cyberspace.

These few pointers though can be tried aren’t sure to give you the expected results. This is because the Facebook algorithm and privacy policies do make the social space for its users safe and free from third party intrusions.

The best way in which you could optimize the above-mentioned methods is by knowing your spellings of the names properly, knowing what they look like (to identify the right person with that name) and if you have the patience to scroll down a bit for a while till you find them and the posts/comments you have been looking for.
