How to Find Someone's MySpace Page

By Techwalla Contributor

Looking for a friend on MySpace? Trying to find out if someone even has a MySpace page? Even though MySpace is a very popular social site, it can be a challenge sometimes to find someone on MySpace. The good news is you don't have to have a MySpace page to locate someone else's profile. Use this handy tutorial to find someone's MySpace page.

Step 1

To locate someone on MySpace, you will first need to go to www.MySpace.com. You don't have to have a MySpace account to do a MySpace search.

Step 2

In the top right hand corner of your screen, you will see a white box and the word search next to it. You should type in the first name of the person in the box. If you know the person's last name, go ahead and type that in as well.

Step 3

Click search or hit enter on your keyboard to start finding someone.

Step 4

After you click search, a new screen will appear. There are several colored tabs that say: People, MySpace, Web by Google, Music, Videos, Images, and Local. It will automatically default to the Web by Google Tab.

Step 5

Click the MySpace Tab. This will bring up a list of people specifically on MySpace that match the name that you typed in the search box in step 2 of this tutorial.

Step 6

Scroll through the list and look at locations, pictures and other displayed information to find the exact person you're trying to find on MySpace.

Step 7

When you find the person's MySpace page you're looking for click the picture or the blue link above the description. This will take you directly to the person's MySpace page.

Step 8

If the person you're looking for doesn't seem to have a MySpace page, you can do an email search. In step 2 you type in the person's email instead of their name. Then repeat the process again to see if they have a MySpace profile or page that you can go visit.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure you have the correct spelling of the person's name you want to find.
  • Try the entering the email to find someone on MySpace instead of their name.
  • Some people have their MySpace page settings so that you cannot view their profile unless you type in specific information. This doesn't mean they don't have a MySpace page. It just means their MySpace page information is private.
