Everyone of us have nicknames. For some, it is given by their parents and for some, by their friends. Nicknames are kind of a second identity for a person. And its highly probable that are more popular among your friends by your nickname rather than by your real name.
If someone searches you on Facebook by your Nickname, then she may not be able to find you because you’re probably using your real name on Facebook.
Facebook now allows you to include your nickname in searches so that people who know you by just your nickname can also find you using the Facebook search. To enable this feature:
1. Go to Settings > Account Settings
2. In the main window that appears, click on Name Change
3. Now type your Alternative name / Nickname there
That’s it. Now you can be searched by your first name as well as your nickname.
