Facebook: Who Has Viewed My Facebook Profile?

Who Has Viewed My Facebook Profile?..

There are quite a few applications etc., being mentioned on Facebook, that say they can show you who  has viewed your Facebook profile.

But do they work?

Facebook say they don’t:  www.facebook.com/help/www/117257561692875

Can I know who’s looking at my Timeline or how often it’s being viewed?..

Facebook Tracking

No. Facebook doesn’t let you track who views your profile or your posts (ex: your photos). Third-party apps are also unable to do this.

If you come across an app that says it can show you who’s viewing your profile or posts, please report the app.

Beware of “Who Viewed My Profile” Apps on Facebook.

Some Facebook posts, linking to these applications will use a text link like this: http://adf.ly/tLYRF to direct you to the application. It will do something, but first goes to a page with advertising, and you need to click on the Skip Ad button after 5 seconds, to be redirected to the final target page.

I tried one myself today, and all it gave me was the number of times each person had LIKED any of my posts, not exactly the same as the number of viewers.


‘Profile visitors for Facebook‘ is a free Google chrome extension that enables you to track who views your Facebook, with just one drawback. It only tracks visitors who have used the Chrome browser to visit your Facebook page AND who also have this ‘Profile visitors for Facebook’ extension installed on their computer.  Not exactly a complete guide to who visited you…
