Who Can Search for You Your Facebook profile is searchable on the Web, and Facebook now allows you to control how much Web surfers can find about you. Click on "Privacy" on the upper left to return to the privacy main menu. Then click on "Search." The default setting allows "Everyone" on Facebook to search for you.
