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.
Update 12/19/2018: Facebook appears to have removed this option from their site. There is no word from Facebook on if or when the feature will be enabled again.
These steps below used to be the way you could suggest a friend on the desktop version of Facebook.
- Login to Facebook.
- Go to the profile of the person you would like to suggest friends to.
- Hover over the “Friends” button on the person’s page.
- Choose “Suggest Friends…“.
- 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.
