Can I tell who viewed my Facebook Profile?

Many persons and apps claim that they can tell who viewed their profile, but Facebook has reported that that functionality does not exist.

There are quite a few Apps on Facebook that claim that they can tell you who viewed your account but neither of them actually seem to work.

Facebook’s FAQ reports the following

Can people tell that I’ve looked at their profile (timeline)?

No, Facebook does not provide a functionality that enables people to track who is viewing their profile (timeline). Third party applications also cannot provide this functionality. If you come across an application that claims to offer this ability, we encourage you to report it. You can report applications that provide untrustworthy experiences.


In my opinion, the only sort of public tracking system available would be Facebook insights which caters to Apps, Facebook Pages and Websites. The idea of tracking persons who view another user’s profile, would make a good app but until Facebook allows the proper tools to do it. I don’t see a possible way at the moment.


I am a passionate PHP user with a love for Open Source systems. With a few years of programming these technologies, I am fortunate to be able to share my thoughts. Joomla and WordPress are my favorite systems to develop. That's enough for now.
