1- Use hashtags

Afterall hashtags are used by people and by brands etc for increased visibility and that’s exactly what you need to do. These hashtags can help you in getting to your content or the person you’ve been trying to find. In terms of content, think of hashtags a brand or a page would use that are related to the topic of the content. This can help you get some leads and in terms of a person, just think of the things they are interested in. For example, if you know your long lost friend was a crazy fan of football then try using a hashtag especially on Instagram that’s related to the football world cup or some major match. This way you might end up finding your friend through his post.


2- People search

If social media is not coming handy to you then just simply head to the web and look for different people search websites. This can be very useful and helpful so do try your luck here too. Just don’t make the mistake of paying any of these people search websites because finding information about someone is and should be totally free of cost. So, don’t fall prey to such scam sites and stick to your search and stay focused.


3- Use Google

Use Google to find the social media account of the person you are looking for. Google is always useful when it comes to finding someone or finding some information or some content. So, try your luck on Google too. Just type in the name of the person you are looking for and you will have his account pop up on your screen if he is using any social media platform.



These are some of the best tactics that can be useful for you if you are trying to find people or content. Remember, it’s not impossible to find someone online but it’s not like you can get the results on your first try too. So, just stay constant with your efforts and you will see the results on your own.
