Sometimes you may wish to see the photos of a certain facebook user but you cannot as the target person is not directly your friend evens not your friends of friends. You cannot see much information of that user when you go to her profile page, may be you just see the ‘Info’ tab saying that “<Name> only shares some of her profile information with everyone. If you know <Name>, send her a message or add her as a friend.”, sometimes you may find the ‘Wall’ tab also just like the following image.
You see the ‘Photos’ tab is missing but you want to see her photos. You know the photo privacy settings have 4 options:
- Friends of Friends
- Only Friends
‘Friends of Friends’ is the default settings. We are assuming that the above person has not changed her privacy settings for photos. But still as you are not her friend evens not friend of friends, you are not eligible to see her photos. Don’t be disappointed, there is a way to reveal those. Follow the steps:
- Login to facebook
- Search for your target person
- Go to her profile page
- Copy the code and paste it into the browser’s address bar and hit the ENTER key.
