    Hey, I got curious about something/one and decided I wanted to find a little extra info on them. (I'm not crazy e.e)
    I've noticed he posts some rather odd things.
    What I know as of now is, its a male for sure, the general area he lives in and his race (not that it matters but i'm trying to find info about their identity).
    Theres a person who has a very anonymous profile on facebook. It is private (added the person as a friend tho), they have no specific info about themselves (email, phone #, address, work, education, etc...), no pictures of themselves (they only have pics of this stuffed animal for all thier pics).
    The persons user name and the pics portray a fictional character named "rupert the bear" lol.

    Now the only method I could think of to find info about this person (ip addy) is to get them to email me from their email using facebook msg as a middle medium.

    Anyone know a method about how I could possibly find the identity of this mysterious facebooker?

    I'll post their user name if that allowed but I didn't want to blacklist or violate some forum rule.

    I'm not a Internet detective but am decent at digging for info - that being said, I'm not going to be hunting for the person you are stalking... err... trying to get more info on.

    My suggestion to you though is if you are trying to find more info on him, the best way would be to use some social engineering - get him to volunteer the info by you making him think you are a legitimate contest or other place that you'd give your info to. He would have to think that he's been picked or that so-and-so company has a legitimate reason for it. But the method is for you to finger out.

    Create a fake profile of a hot girl, add some of his friends, use same general area where he lives...
    Like OldSalt said, social engineering ;)

    Or try to find other profiles with the same nickname etc

    Please don't post his username, this is a highly active forum and they have a right to some privacy. Also when stuff gets posted here accounts tend to magically disappear. It could be some sad old dude with nothing better to do with his time. You wouldn't want to take that away from him.

    Ok, I got all you. I was pretty much going to do all that. I won't post his user name, like I said, I respect peoples privacy but I want to get info on him b/c I work on social networking for people and this guy keeps posting weird comments on their pages and I know he interacts with them at their place of work like in person. Just trying to look out for others safety pretty much b/c fb isn't gonna do much and well I don't think its something that is a emergency or anything.
    It prolly is some poor/sad/depressed dude who gets his jollys off like that...

    Why are you trying to pry into his life, anyway?
