How to get FB Profile Information using Image saved from FB ?


I know the topic for this post looks little different and weird but any ways this is small finding and also it may available on internet.
I had really good photo on my system which was saved way back in my college days so today looking at that picture  i was wondering to see the profile of that person. I will explain how to get profile url from image name.

Please follow these steps –
Suppose The image name saved on my system was(Obviously i am not going to give you that image name.. 😛 ) –
you can actually see this image at the location as follows –

Now when you save the image on your hard drive,
You can see there three numbers separated by underscore in the image name. copy the second number i.e. 10150762899939244

Now open a new tab and enter
this will lead to the FB pic directly and from there you can check the profile pic of the pic owner or the one who is in the pic. 🙂 🙂

Facebook has changed the image naming pattern since last 3 years as sometimes back it used to contain 4 to 5 numbers separtaed by underscore.
It used to add profile_id in number too.
Now happy looking at your old FB pics and finding who was that ..:))

Please let me know if it is useful for you.
