GOOGLE Can't Find FACEBOOK ACCOUNT But it EXISTS how so?

By SJ9999 ·
Scenario you meet someone get to know them very well then are forced to separate, due to Covid for example. So you use their name and find they have a Facebook account, you send a request and are accepted as a friend. After chatting frequently and very openly, they then ask you to use another FB account they have. Reason they give being it's an old account they don't use any more. So the friendship continues all appears normal but you occasionally check their old account and can clearly see it's still in use. You mention this innocently and they block you, but deny doing this. You don't want to fall out with them but you are suspicious.
So my question; when logged into FB using Google Chrome on a device, a computer for example you cannot find their Facebook account when searching in Google, why? When you search in Brave same issues but it uses Google search. Using Bing the FB account is found!

How and why does Google do this?

The simplest reason.

Google and Facebook are two different companies. I'm sure you are aware they are competitors so no one expects one to work with the other.

Since Bing works, call that a win and move on.

Try to Search on Facebook. if your Friend has many followers and friends and if he is famous on facebook then you can find him on Google.

If you're unable to find the person, it could be because he chose not to make his profile available for public search. If you are able to find him, click the name to go to his Timeline and then log in from that page. If the Timeline is no longer visible, you've been blocked.

Ask one of your Facebook friends to look at the About section of your profile and send you the email or mobile phone number listed in the Contact Information
