How to Find People City On Facebook
Facebook Lookup by City
To do a Facebook lookup or search and narrow it by city, first type the name of the person you are looking for into the search box on the Facebook website or smart phone app. Then, click the “People” tab to indicate you’re trying to search for a person.
Under the “Filter Results” options, choose the city you want to limit the Facebook lookup to. If the city you’re interested in isn’t listed as an option at first, click or tap “Choose a City” and enter the city’s name.
This should limit your search to people associated with that city. You can also limit your search to people who have worked at a certain business or attended a particular school by using the other search filter options.
Advertise to People By Location
If you’re placing ads on Facebook, you may want to target them to people who live in or are currently in a particular city. This is often useful for a local business that you expect will only cater to people who live nearby.

Use Facebook’s Location Targeting feature to achieve this, selecting a city, country or a group of locations to aim your ad at. Choose whether you want to aim the ad at people currently in the location, people recently there, people who live there or people who are traveling there. For example, if your business caters to tourists, you might want to post an ad for travelers, but if it caters mostly to locals, you may wish to limit your ad’s reach to residents.
If you choose a wider location like a country, state or continent, you can often also limit your ad to people who live in major cities or in cities of a particular size. This can be useful if your business offers something that caters particularly to urban dwellers or people outside major cities.
Find City Groups and Pages
If you want to know more about a particular city or communicate with people who live there, you can look for Facebook groups and pages related to the city. Often you can find them simply by typing the city’s name into the search box on Facebook or using nicknames for the city, such as Big Apple for New York. Look through group and page descriptions to find one or more that seem interesting and might have materials that are relevant to you or provide an opportunity to reach people in that city.
Some groups may require you to join and agree to membership rules before you can interact with the material posted there. Make sure you learn and abide by any policies regarding what can be posted on the group. For example, some may not allow particular language or might ban advertisements. If you break the rules, you might anger the other group members or page users and have your posts deleted.
You may also be able to find lists of popular Facebook groups about a city by searching for articles in publications from that city. Also consider using other social networking tools to find information about or from a city, including Twitter, Instagram
