Social media can keep you up to date with the lives of your friends, family and old acquaintances, whether you’re scrolling through your Facebook news feed or browsing snaps on Instagram.
However, if you find yourself wondering what your partner looks at and likes on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, there’s a way of finding out.
If curiosity gets the betters of you, here’s how to look at what someone else has liked on Facebook.
1. Click on the search bar at the top of the web page or app
2. Type in ‘photos liked by’ followed by your partner’s name
This should then bring up a selection of photos liked by the person you chose.
The pictures usually aren’t in order and this search often brings up older pictures first, but it also includes more recent photos.
Facebook will also usually automatically bring up the option of ‘by my boyfriend/girlfriend’ when searching for a particular person. This will also work if you’re in a relationship with someone on Facebook.
The search is not just limited to your partner either, so if you’re feeling nosy, you can search what family members or friends have recently liked too.
If you’re also a fan of Instagram and want to see the activity of your other half on the social media platform, this can also be done.
To view the recent liking and commenting activity of the people you follow:
1. Open the Instagram app
2. Click the heart icon at the bottom of the home screen. The first thing that should appear is a list of likes and comments on your photos.
3. Choose the tab near the top that says ‘Following’, and then you can see the activity of users you follow.
This will then allow you to see what all the people who you follow, including your partner, have liked on Instagram.
The information available shows if someone has liked or commented on a post, but if a user was tagged in a photo or story, this will not show up on this notifications page.
