    Default A search tip for Facebook

    Here is a good tip if you didn't know if already. If you come across a profile which is set to private (most of them) right click on their profile image and select "View Image". You will see in the address bar the users id eg profile.ak.fbcdn.net/v22939/1565/10/n12345678910_2569.jpg the bold part is the user id.

    Now copy and paste that id at the end of this address: http://www.facebook.com/photo_comments.php?id=xxxxx where xxxx would be the user id.

    This will now show you any photos they have which have been commented on. Click on a photo and then you will be able to see the rest of the album.

    profile.ak.fbcdn.net/v22939/1565/10/n12345678910_2569.jpg


    Now here is the explanation
    1) You need to get the userid. Find a user and right click on their profile photo and in Firefox click on "View image" In IE select properties.
    2) In Firefox you will now see an address like http: //profile.ak.fbcdn.net/v22939/1565/10/n12345678910_2569.jpg If you are using IE you see the url of the photo in the properties box.
    3) That number after n up to _ (which I've made bold above) is the userid, copy that.
    4) Paste it at the end of this address http://www.facebook.com/photo_comments.php?id=
    eg http://www.facebook.com/photo_commen...id=12345678910

    This will now let you see any of that users photos which have been commented on. Click on it, and then you can select to see the entire album.

    If it takes you back to the home page either you've made a mistake in copying something, or the account is deleted.

    If take you to a new page but you can't see any photos, either the user doesn't have any commented photos or their account is really locked down.

    Instead of instructions 1-3, you can just go to a persons profile page and there you have the correct id:
    http ://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=123456789

    and then use the bolded ID-number after the id in this link:
    http ://www.facebook.com/photo_comments.php?id=

    But now it seems they changed it again. Atleast I don't find any such 'loopholes' to trespass without adding the person as a friend!
