  1. Hello Hemant, have read your article regarding facebook private profile view. I am interested and intend to penetrate my wife’s facebook account without her consent due to I guess she is cheating with me along with her facebook friends which is making me unhappy in my married life. Hope you understand and please advise what to do mentioning best effective methods.

    Thanks/Reza

  2. Hi mate, these are natural methods anyone already would do without even thinking deep.
    But my concern is more like:
    I have that friend from 1996. she went missing of my eyes after studying abroad.
    She probably lost my address when she moved.

    Anyway I just found her FB account since I’ve been searching for her online from time to time.
    So I discovered she had a FB account!
    But the “social network” is good at keeping you away from your old times friends! Nice huh?
    I sent messages, all gone to her spam folder cause guess what? If you are not ALREADY a contact, you cant say “hey! Its me how have you been??”
    Interesting right?
    How can I make myself noticed to her, since all is secured on her profile even her profile pic!
    Cant send a contact request. blah blah.
    I asked her friends but its the same FB-shit.
    Thanks mate!

    1. What you could try is to look who her friends are who “likes” her cover photos or other public photos, contact them and explain who you are, some of them may not have their messages set with so much restriction and could connect you to her.

  3. I need to figure out how to see my own dads facebook , I haven’t seen him in over 5 yeaars and need to know things . I stumbled on his facebook account and I am desperately trying to figure out his information on facebook but it’s private.
