Usually I find someone pretty fast, because I have a good space orientation.

Good!

Not in a public place but sometimes in the university I have hard times finding with a friend in a library for example

I think that many times we don't listen carefully indications and we assume where is a person who are looking for . In this way we lose a lot information

I'll tell him to come at the start point, in this case the entry of the store.

somtimes but i use mobile to find them

I like when Sammy says: "there is anybody here", but what is the difference between anybody and anyone, everybody and everyone?

Hello Alexander Bladeck,

There is no difference in meaning between anybody and anyone, somebody and someone etc. Forms with ~one are perhaps a little more formal and less common in everyday speech, but even here it is a very subtle difference.
