If you use Facebook, you might already be connected to hundreds of people and wondering who is viewing your profile, who leaves comments on your posts, and who gives "likes" to the photos and statuses you post. There is no way to know for sure who is viewing your profile, but by researching the users that Facebook believes are most connected to your profile (based on their likes, comments and posts), you might get an idea of who your "groupies" are. Usually, your close friends are the ones who see your status updates first and sometimes they might even be the only ones to see them, unless you get a lot of likes and comments. If you want to know who is most connected to your Facebook, you can just check out the users at the top of the page with your friends list or check out the friends at the top of the list by taking a look at the source code.
Method 1 of 2: Try the basic method
Step 1. Open your profile
While it's impossible to know exactly who regularly views your profile, you can get a feel for the users you interact with the most and who Facebook thinks of your closest friends. If you see someone on this list that you don't often have contact with, they might express their interest in your profile through their likes, comments, or visits.
You can quickly access your profile by opening the Facebook page and clicking on your name in the top left corner
Step 2. Open your friends page
Click on the friendship link on the left side of the profile to open a list of all your Facebook friends. At first, it might seem like they're randomly ordered, but some evidence suggests they're actually put in order by a complex algorithm that shows who you're most connected with.
The outcome of the algorithm is determined by many factors, including photo comments, material shared, and profile visits
Step 3. Observe the friends at the top
The users at the top of the list are the ones who might be most connected to you. This connection can be the result of various settings, for example their interest in your status updates or your interest in theirs (as well as likes and comments).
Method 2 of 2: Observe the source code
Step 1. Understand how it works
This tip will give you a little idea about who is viewing your profile, but you won't get a clear confirmation. The list that Facebook maintains is determined by many factors: who comments on your posts, who you frequently message to, who views your profile most often, and so on.
- There's no way to tell who looks at your profile the most and an app that claims it can do that is brazenly lying to you.
- You must learn to interpret the list in question. For example, you can observe which users are near the top of the list, who are not sending you messages, and to whom you are not leaving comments. If someone you interact with infrequently appears at the top of the list, it may mean that they check your profile often.
Step 2. Open your browser
You must choose one that allows you to see the source code of the websites. Google Chrome is one of the easiest to use among these. You won't be able to do this from a browser on your cell phone or from the app, you need a browser on a computer.
Step 3. Go to your profile
You'll take a look at the source code for your profile page. You can get there by logging into Facebook and clicking on your name in the top left corner under your avatar.
Step 4. Review the source code
If you are using Google Chrome, right click and select View source code. You can also use the shortcut Ctrl + U (or ⌘ Cmd + U on a Mac). Other browsers often have other options on the menu.
Step 5. Use the search function
You can search the source code by pressing Ctrl + F (or ⌘ Cmd + F on a Mac). This allows you to search all of the code for the page in question. Type InitialChatFriendsList in the search field.
Step 6. Take a look at the list of profiles
The numbers immediately after are the ID numbers of your friends' profiles. You will see strings of numbers, in quotes and followed by -0, -2 or -3. Copy the string of digits without the hyphen and the final digit. Go back to the Facebook home page and paste this number right after the.com /. This will bring you to the profile page of the user in question.
Step 7. Find out who owns each profile
Copy the number you found in the source code, leaving out the -X at the end. For example, if the number you found is 1111111-2, copy only 1111111. Open a new Facebook page and paste that number at the end of the URL. Following the example above, the URL should look something like this: www.facebook.com/1111111. Press Enter to load the page and find who owns the profile.
Step 8. Find the profile that interests you
To get there, you need to search for the specific ID. The best way to do this is to open a user posted photo and then try out the different numbers that appear in the photo URL. One of those numbers should be his profile ID.
