At the top right corner of the Friends page you will see an arrow. Click on this, and then tap on the Find Friends button. The next screen will list all of your contact in your phone that you are theoretically not friends with on Facebook. Keep in mind that if your friend on Facebook has registered a different phone number on Facebook, you may actually already be friends with one ore more your contacts on Facebook.

Facebook no longer lets you search for friends by phone numbers
Facebook users have a new privacy concern after discovering that the social network apparently stores a list of phone numbers belonging to your Facebook friends and, apparently, to contacts stored in the mobile device that you use to access Facebook's mobile app. Before you panic, this list is not publicly visible to your entire social network. According to The Washington Post , this Phonebook Contacts feature has been live for "a few years," though many users are just noting its existence. Your personal list, created from contacts stored in your mobile device, is accessible on your Facebook profile.
Whether you remember it or not, you may have once granted Facebook permission to store the contacts in your phone's address book. If you did, Facebook is continuously uploading these contacts to its servers. Sign up for free newsletters and get more CNBC delivered to your inbox.

As part of its overhaul of user privacy, Facebook has announced a raft of changes to how it handles user data, including removing the ability to find other Facebook users by searching for their phone number. Facebook has also taken steps to limit the data available to third-party apps. It's tightening the review process for apps that request your photos and posts, and apps are no longer allowed to request sensitive data including marital status, religious views, education and work history — the type of data that enabled organizations like Cambridge Analytica to deliver precisely targeted ads to voters in the US presidential election. In the same blog post, Facebook admitted that its Messenger and Facebook Lite Android apps gather users' call and text history on an opt-in basis. The site reiterated its earlier claim that it doesn't access the content of any messages, but said it was necessary to review the feature to make sure that was the case, and has cut down the amount of information it records. These are all positive steps, but are small comfort following the revelation that Cambridge Analytica might have in fact harvested data from 87 million Facebook users, rather than the 50 million originally reported.
