Users comments :

"If you can not find the defendant in New Jersey you can publish the matter in the newspaper by court rule.The rule does not say Facebook i think the alternative service should say newspaper.That is up to the State Supreme Court to change the rule.The Supreme Court in New York is not their highest court."

"Good point when you can not find the defendant it is a lot of extra work."
