Facebook or Myspace...

Was just reading the other question regarding Facebook and Myspace. I don't have either...And would like to know how you are able to search on there for High School Friends? Especially those your not quite sure where they are at now. Can you just do a wide search with just a name?

  • I just joined facebook recently. You can do a free search by name, school, and even graduation year. Sometimes you may not find a person because they are listed under a different name; maybe their married name & not their maiden name or they may list their name as Richard instead of Rick, for example. Once you are friends with some people, you will find a section that lists people you may know because they are friends with your friends. You can also search by employer.

  • Once you have an account, go to the top of the page in your profile and go to friends..then click on "find friends". Go to the bottom of that page and there will be a place to search. Under the search bar there is a link to find highschool friends and one for college friends. Click on that and type in your high school and the year.

  • Yeah I agree with all of the above except for the costing money part, on facebook and myspace it doesn't cost anything if you go to classmates you have to pay a monthly fee.
