View Private Users Profile Picture

So you get a friend request from someone and you want to see their picture on facebook, but their profile is private. Well facebook provides a tiny little thumbnail picture of them that you can view. In many cases this gives you no idea of who the person is. Especially if there are other people in the photo with them. Luckily, there is a way to get a larger image to see who the person really is.

Search for the person you would like to find or click on their name in the friend request. You should get something like this:
Found Kenny

See how small that is? Luckily it’s kenny from south park so we have no problem reconizing him. But pretend it’s John Smith in a party shot and you can barely see his face. Well, lets have a closer look:

Right click on the picture (apple-click if you have a mac) then click the option to open the link in a new tab or window.

The link should look like this:

And the page should have the thumbnail image:

Small version of kenny

Small version of kenny

Now change the highlighted s to the highlighted n shown in this picture:

And you should see a much larger version of the private profile’s profile picture:

Large version of Kenny

If you do that, the picture will be blurry, because you will have a lower resolution version. This hack, gives you the higher resolution picture, so you can actually zoom in without it becoming too pixelated to see.
