It sounds tempting. Many times we are interested to know who is looking at our profile. This is just a human nature to be curious about those who are curious about us! Is it possible in Facebook?
In a single word, it is not possible. If this were the case, people would have been cautious and Facebook probably would not be able to retain its “informal” ambiance. LinkedIn may allow this to happen because the social site is more “formal” and “professional” in nature. Thus, it is quite possible that professionals don’t feel the panic of others seeing their profile in LinkedIn. In fact, Facebook does not allow its members to trace this information on who is visiting friends’ profiles, nor it seems possible through third party applications. Some apps seem to be scams that may actually stress you with spams, if not more trouble like hacking your Facebook profile or sending you spam advertising to mobile phones.
Interestingly, Facebook has a section in their Help menu that reads “Common Myths About Facebook” (click here to visit). Under the menu, the answer to our question can be found. It says, “No, Facebook doesn’t let people track who views their Timeline. Third-party apps also can’t provide this functionality. If you come across an app that claims to offer this ability, please report the app.”
