Will a facebook user know if someone clicks on their pictures or surfs their profile ?
If you are new to Facebook, then you might have some questions running in your head, especially if you have been a part of other social networks earlier. The concept of Social bookmarking is the core of face book, but it offers a lot more security when compared to other social networks like bebo.
One of the common question I get is: users want to know if they search for a particular name/person on Facebook, and click on one of the result that turns up, whether that person will know if someone has clicked on their profile or browsed through their pictures/profile.
Few things you need to know here is, by default all the profiles are private, which means only those in the friends list can see and browse through detailed content and not everyone. If someone has chosen to let their profile be public (so that anyone can access), they would have done for a reason.
Next coming back to the actual question, Facebook does not provide any means to track who has visited the users profile. So there is no way any one find who visited their profile or browsed through their pictures or albums. The question doesn’t rise at all as Facebook has a high level of Security and Privacy.
I have not come across any Apps that can do this either as the API’s provided by the Facebook for the Application developers doesn’t specifically define any such API.
Now this doesn’t mean that everyone should start spying unnecessarily 😉
