Can I See Who Views My Facebook Profile?

Can I See Who Views My Facebook Profile

If you ask yourself  ”Can I see who views my Facebook profile,” then you’ve come to the right place. You can, but not through Facebook itself. There are some third-party applications and some tricks and ways to do this, but Facebook does not recommend them.

Facebook has privacy standards and terms of service that they have posted to ensure that people are not able to find out who exactly views their profile.

Facebook Standards

On Facebook’s privacy page, it states that they do not provide any functions that “enable you to track who is view your profile, or parts of your profile.” It even specifically goes on to say that third-party apps can’t provide that function, and any that do offer that ability will be removed from Facebook because it is a violation of their policy.

Switch That

The same standards apply for others being able to tell when you’ve viewed their profiles. There is no way to track these profile views or statistics of views for any specific personal content. For this example on Facebook’s page, however, they say third-party applications can provide part of this functionality, but has specifications.

Specifications

Those applications can’t track profile visits for people who just go to another person’s profile. To be tracked, you would have to agree to allow that application to track your actions. This application is optional, so if you don’t want to participate, you don’t have to.

Applications

I don’t personally know of any specific applications that you can use to help you do this, but, like I said, Facebook doesn’t like you to anyway. It’s a violation of someone else’s privacy and if you use an application that Facebook doesn’t like, they’ll suspend it and you won’t be able to use it anyway. So be smart before you decide to go forth with any applications that state they can allow you to view who’s been looking at your profile.
