Once you've created an account on Facebook in the United States you can search for people you know and then add them as friends. There are several ways to search for people through your account in the United States. You can type in your email address and locate anyone who you email through an email search. You can also search for people who instant message you through AOL Instant Messenger. The best way to find someone in England you're looking for is to simply type his or her name into the search bar. Depending on the name you could receive too many results to look through, so you must narrow you search down to the location of England.


Step 1

Log in to your Facebook account. Scroll over the "Friends" option at the top of the page and then click on the "Find Friends" option. Start your search by typing in the name of the person you're looking for into the "Search for People" search bar at the bottom of the page. Click the magnifying glass icon to the right of the search bar to start the search.

Step 2

Filter the results by typing in "England" into the "Location" field at the top of the search results. Narrow down your search even more by entering in the person's school that he's attending or graduated from and his company he works for. Click on the "Filter Results" option to begin to narrow the search.


Step 3

Scroll through the results to locate the person from England you are looking for. Click on the "Add as Friend" option to add the person as a friend once you find him or her. Once this person has accepted your friend request you can try to find more friends on Facebook from England that are also friends with the person you originally found and added as a friend.



Step 4

Click on the "Applications" option if you can't find the friend that you're looking for. Type in "Advanced Search" into the search box and press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.

Step 5

Click on the "Advanced Search" application and then click on the "Go to Application" option. With this application added to your Facebook you can find anyone in the world even if they don't have a network or more options listed in their profiles to help narrow down your search. Click on the "Add Application" button to get the application and then search for your friends in England.
