Facebook: Where Did the ‘Suggest Friends’ Option Go?

Today I was trying to suggest a friend on Facebook to another one of my friends. I opened the friends’ profile and the link to Suggest friends wasn’t there. It’s used to be located under the main profile photo. It has moved though. To find it, follow these steps.

These steps can be performed on the desktop version of the site.

  1. Go to the profile of the person you would like to suggest friends to.
  2. Hover over the “Friends” button on the person’s page.
  3. Choose “Suggest Friends…“.
    Facebook Suggest Friends option
  4. Search for a person, then use the “Suggest friend” button next to their name.


How can I do this from the iPhone or Android app?

There does not seem to be a way to do this from the Facebook app for iPhone or Android. Your best option would be to view the desktop version of Facebook from your browser, then follow the above steps.
