    I know the facebook URL of a person/friend and I can put in the URL and see
    the person's profile. But if I search for the person's name, it doesn't come up
    in Facebook search results ( I know I'm not blocked by this person). How is this
    possible? I've asked them and even they don't know how.

    I can't find any way to make it so my profile doesn't come up in Facebook Search now they have
    taken that option off privacy preferences. I have all my info that I can set to
    private or "Friends Only" but I still have to continually deactivate my account
    because if I don't, my name shows in the Facebook Search results. I have a
    restraining order against my Ex (this person was crazy and violent). I want to
    be able to be on Facebook and not have them continually find me : ( Can some
    smart person PLEASE help me? Is there some app or hack I can use?

    Maybe your friend had the option enabled before they got rid of it and now their account will stay like it.
