Every now and then I get a message, or see a wall post by a friend about an app that can track profile visitors on Facebook. Is it possible to track the visitors or views on your Facebook profile? Let’s find out.
In an FAQ, Facebook clearly states that its impossible to track profile views or visitors. Any application that does that is not accepted by Facebook as it against their TOS.
Can I know whoâ€™s viewing my profile or how often itâ€™s being viewed?
No, Facebook does not provide the ability to track who is viewing your profile, or parts of your profile, such as your photos. Applications by outside developers cannot provide this functionality, either. Applications that claim to give you this ability will be removed from Facebook for violating policy. You can report applications that provide untrustworthy experiences by clicking the “Report Application” at the bottom of the applicationâ€™s About page, or by clicking “Report” at the bottom of any canvas page within the application.
So basically when you get any message or see any wall posts about any Facebook application that can track profile views and visitors, chances are that these are automatically generated from already scammed Facebook profile.
If you click on any of these links and add these apps, a similar status will be automatically posted on your wall, thus making your friends also vulnerable. Check this post on malicious Facebook apps to learn more.
Conclusion: Its impossible to find out who has visited or viewed your Facebook profile, so stop looking for any app or method that does that.
Note: In case you have already clicked on any scam link or added a scam Facebook app to your account, remove that app from your Facebook account immediately to prevent further damage.
