This wikiHow teaches you how to quickly find a friend's response to a Facebook post that has many comments. You'll also learn how to use Stalk Scan to view a friend’s responses to Facebook photos.

Finding a Friend’s Comment on a Post

  1. Sign in to in a web browser. When using Facebook on a computer, you’ll see notifications in the Ticker (the activity feed on the right side of the screen) that a friend has commented on a post. Use this method to find your friend’s response on a thread with many comments, even when it’s buried within a thread.
  2. Right-click the notification of your friend’s comment. It’s the text in the Ticker that says “(your friend) commented on (another person)’s post.”
  3. Click Open Link in New Tab or Open Link in New Window. The post will appear with all comments expanded so that your friend’s response is visible. If there are a lot of comments, you'll have to scroll down to find your friend’s comment.
    • You may just see a link that says “(friend’s name) replied” rather than the actual comment. Click that link to view the comment.
    • If there are still too many comments to wade through, press Ctrl+F (Windows) or ⌘ Cmd+F (macOS) to open a search box, then type your friend’s name. Use the navigational arrows next to the search box to scroll through the search results to find your friend’s comment.

Finding a Friend’s Photo Comments

  1. Sign into in a web browser. As long as you have access to a web browser (on a computer or mobile device), you can easily view all of the photos on which a friend has commented.
    • This method will not work in the Facebook mobile app.
  2. Go to your friend’s profile. There are many ways to do this:
    • Click or tap the Search box or button at the top of the page and start typing their name. When their name appears in the search results, select it to open their profile.
    • On your own Facebook profile, click or tap Friends, then select your friend.
  3. Copy the link to your friend’s profile.
    • Mobile: Tap and hold the URL at the top of the screen, then tap Copy.
    • Computer: Highlight the entire URL at the top of the screen, then press Ctrl+C (Windows) or ⌘ Cmd+C (macOS).
  4. Go to in your web browser. StalkScan is a free tool that gives you quick access to a bunch of information about a Facebook friend’s activity.
    • StalkScan only allows you to see comments on photos you have permission to view, such as public photos and those posted by mutual friends.
  5. Paste the URL of your friend’s profile into the box.
    • Mobile: Tap and hold the box, then tap Paste when it appears.
    • Computer: Click the box so the cursor appears, then press Ctrl+V (Windows) or ⌘ Cmd+V (macOS).
  6. Click or tap the Search icon. It’s the magnifying glass to the right of the Search box.
  7. Click or tap Pictures under the “Comments” header. You may have to scroll down to see it. This opens a list of all photos on which your friend has left a comment.
  8. Click or tap a photo to view its comments. Your friend’s comment will now be visible.


  • StalkScan used to be able to show you all of a friend’s Facebook comments (instead of just Photos). This is no longer possible due to changes in Facebook’s graph search.
  • StalkScan will never show information that a friend has marked “Only Me.”
