How do you search for a particular photo in your Facebook photos?

Douglas Mutay October 26, 2012

I have been desperately trying to search for a photo in my Facebook library but I have found that there is no such place where I can enter a description or a name and search for a photo. I had to scroll through thousands of pictures but still I was not able to find it.

I have checked Facebook help and couldn’t find the answer on how to proceed. Is there a way to search inside you own Facebook events, photos or posts? I hope so…

Anyone have any ideas?

      I didn't delete that particular photo. And i don't think fb will help because how will them know the photo i am currently looking for. The best option was to lunch a search within my photo album, but i don't see that option. This is why i have asked for help. Maybe someone knows how to do that...

        I think that fb can help u
        u should say the status of the photo or any comment of that particular photo to facebook
        & then should be available of finding the pic
