See Who Stalks Your Facebook | Over the previous couple of weeks much of my trainees insisted they know 'a way' to see who looked at your facebook profile one of the most. Generally I do not care about such 'misconceptions' but since it didn't pass away and trainees didn't think my 'that's impossible to work' here a brief post about it and the reason that it will not work.
See Who Stalks Your Facebook
The idea: Learn your facebook ID (if you do not know the best ways to do that, google it. Easy as 1,2,3), browse to your profile through your very own ID, right click, open source code then see your 'stalker'.
Here are some screenshots that reveal how it should work.
1.) Navigate to your profile through your ID, ideal click and see page source.
2.) Browse for the entry 'friendslist' in the source code.
And here the factor why this DOES NOT WORK!
1.) Pals and the personal data Facebook collects from them and you is their biggest great. They would NEVER EVER EVER make it accesible and easy to discover. If you can discover it out like this, everybody else could find it out too. Simply consider the issues this might trigger. That's something Facebook would never ever want to occur because they would enter into lots of difficulty.
2.) This part of the source code does reveal some type of a list, real. However it is rather most likely that it shows the pals you are probably to communicate with. As you might now Facebook ranks your pals and the news you see and on wich position your friends appear on your interaction with them. So if you are most likely to interact with a pal (say it's your sis or somebody you utilized to talk with a lot over the previous couple of days) this friend will make it to the top of the list. It is NOT the person who visited your profile the last.
3.) If you do not think me, believe some of the other geeks and Facebook addicts out there. Example: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13789565/what-is-the-significance-of-orderedfriendslistinitialdata.
Hope that assists and the misconception of 'I understand who visited my profile last/ most' will finally die.
Ways You Can Block A Facebook Stalker
1. Via Your Block Lists
You can obstruct both individuals and applications.
In Facebook, go to > Account > Personal privacy Settings and find the product called > Block Notes at the bottom of the page. Click the > Modify your lists connect to continue.
On the following page you can get in Facebook users by name and email address and block them.
If there are several individuals with the exact same name, you will see a list of matching profiles. Click the > Block button next to the individual you were trying to find.
2. Via Their Profile.
On each Facebook user profile there is a > Report/Block this Individual link at the bottom left. Click this link and a window will pop up that enables you to make a selection.
For instance, you might report the person for > Unwanted contact and examine package to > Block this person. If you opt for the block, the name will appear in your Block Notes, as described above.
3. Via Their Messages.
If the individual you want to block has actually sent you any messages, you can block them by clicking the > Report link beside their name and the date the message was received. To see the link you must open the message. Once you click it, a window with further options will turn up.
Note that no one you obstruct will be notified of the action. Nevertheless, if they are on your pal list, they will be eliminated and your profile will not show up to them. Similarly, you won't be able to see their profile. You both will be invisible to each other, with the exception of 3rd party applications.
If you mistakenly obstructed somebody, you can easily get rid of the block. Go to your Block Lists and click the > Unblock link beside the individual's name. You will be asked to confirm. Uncloging a person will not restore a previous connection.
4. Eliminate Your Standard Directory Site Info.
If you have a major stalker, opportunities are they will simply establish a new Facebook account once you block them. In this case you ought to consider making your profile private, so that strangers can not find and pester you.
The very first thing you ought to do, is eliminate as much of yourself as possible from the > Basic Directory Information. Go to > Account > Privacy Settings and click > View Settings.
On the following page you can define who can search and find you on Facebook, send out good friend demands or messages, see your friend list, and more. For each item choose carefully from the following alternatives: Everybody, Buddies of Buddies, or Buddies Only.
Sadly, you can not totally conceal yourself. Facebook specifies that "your name, profile photo, gender, and network are constantly open up to everyone." This discusses why.
5. Tighten Your Personal Privacy Settings.
Besides restricting standard directory information, you ought to likewise restrict who can see the important things you are sharing. Go back to > Account > Personal privacy Settings and click the > Customize settings to adjust your > Sharing on Facebook options. You can also select from a default setting.
A new page with a list of options will open. Go through all the points and choose who you desire to see your posts, your personal details, or things others show you. You can pick from Everybody, Pals of Buddies, Buddies Just, or Tailor each point and make the information noticeable to just yourself or conceal it from particular people.
It goes without stating that Facebook is just one medium through which a person can stalk you. No matter how tight your privacy settings or how trustworthy individuals on your good friend list are, someone determined to find and bug you still has the remainder of the internet at their disposal. Make sure to treat your personal details, your contact information, and your online privacy in general like a raw egg.
