suggest friends on Facebook- Where is this Option now?

Facebook is a popular and great way to connect with your friends and family for free. I was trying to suggest a friend on Facebook to another one of my friends today. Also, I opened the friends’ profile and the link to Suggest friends wasn’t there. I wonder it was used to be located under the main profile photo. It has moved though. Connecting two unconnected friends is a bit more complicated now. As the suggest friends feature is gone from Facebook. To find it. You have to follow these steps.

Facebook has denied using the location data suggest potential friends amid questions about the unsettling accuracy with which it puts forward “people you may know”. This feature suggests users who have no or few mutual friends on the network.

These steps below used to be the way you could suggest friends on the desktop version of Facebook.


  • Login to your Facebook account.
  • Then go to the profile of the person you would like to suggest friends too.
  • Hover over the “Friends” button on the person’s page.
  • Then choose “Suggest Friends…on Facebook“.
  • Search for a person, then use the “Suggest friend” button next to their name.

There does not seem to be a way to suggest a friend from the Facebook app for iPhone or Android. Your best option would be to view the full site (desktop version) of Facebook from your browser. It doesn’t matter you are doing this from iPhone or Android. And then follow the above-mentioned steps.

  • Oct 2021. I think authors should make their content time-sensitive. This appeared on a search under “how to suggest friend on Facebook”. It’s completely different now in late 2021. Go figure. :/
