To check what pictures someone likes on Facebook, firstly open Facebook app on your device. Then, login to your profile if you are not already logged in. Tap on the magnifying glass icon and type, ‘posts liked by’ followed by the name of person you want to spy on.

Make sure that you have spelled the name exactly as it appears on Facebook. If you want to see only pictures instead of posts, then you can simply type ‘photos liked by’ followed by Facebook name of that person.

Once you hit the enter button, you will witness the pictures or posts liked by that specific person. To see more results you can tap on the ‘see all’ option in the bottom.

One thing that you need to remember is that if the person has liked a (friend’s only) picture of a user, then you might not be able to see the photo. You may also not be able to see pictures posted by people who have restricted you on their posts.

You can also know about the pages your friends have liked. To witness it, search for the username in the search bar.  Next, open their profile and then look for ‘More’ option in the menu at the top of the page. Now tap on the option “Likes” from this list, you will witness all the pages that person has liked, unless they have made this part of their profile private.

This trick can also be used to see the likes of celebrities and public figures as well. It also works if you want to check the photos you have liked over the years. Just type “Photos liked by me” in the search bar and check all the pictures and posts that you have liked over time.
