The purpose of mitzvot (Jewish commandments) is to connect with God so I tried to connect with Him on Facebook but didn't find Him. Can anyone help?

Well, you can try to see G-d on Facebook, but you'd be committing suicide as it says:

Exodus 33:20:

וַיֹּ֕אמֶר לֹ֥א תוּכַ֖ל לִרְאֹ֣ת אֶת־פָּנָ֑י כִּ֛י לֹֽא־יִרְאַ֥נִי הָאָדָ֖ם וָחָֽי׃

And He said: ‘Thou canst not see My face, for man shall not see Me and live.’

Unfortunately, to connect on Facebook one must "friend" the other user, and (Berachos 34a):

חברותא כלפי שמיא מי איכא

There is no such thing as a friend of Heaven

You'll have to find some other way to connect.

Maybe LinkedIn? – Seth J Mar 11 at 14:00
    
@SethJ I tried it as well, see here – mbloch Mar 11 at 14:18

@mbloch, that's unfortunate. – Seth J Mar 11 at 14:50

God is everywhere. Unfortunately, at times, and especially on Purim, He is hiding His face (hester panim) as it says (Dvarim 31:19)

וְאָנֹכִ֗י הַסְתֵּ֨ר אַסְתִּ֤יר פָּנַי֙ בַּיּ֣וֹם הַה֔וּא
And I will surely hide My face on that day

Therefore God is not active on facebook these days.

I didn't find him on LinkedIn either but he might be outside my network. Check the Mechaber to see if he can connect you.

I did find God on twitter but his identity is not verified there so proceed with caution.

Perhaps more concerningly, the facebook account mentioned in GreenAsJade's answer actually is marked as being verified... – reirab Mar 12 at 0:34

I'm not sure what the problem is.

He's easy to find there:
