If I look at someone's Facebook profile that is not private, is there anyway they can find out (ie profile views increase) or see my profile or ip address?

UPDATE: See the link below for more information about if you can find out your IP address from Facebook:

Are you sure a person cannot know that someone is viewing their profile? I used to view someone's profile often (he was my friend) and all of the sudden he has everything on private. We are still friends on FaceBook but i can't see his wall nor his pics... lol

Can I tell if someone who is on Face Book but is NOT one of my friends is looking at my profile? If so, how?

Absolutely Unequivically not! We has several IT Grad students try to find a way for several weeks- result impossible as it stands now. Probable if you are a facebook employee. So you can be voyered or you can be a voyer.A friend of a friend will just see limited profile if you have privacy levels, but you can't tell if someone is checking you out and vice a versa. What you let them see or not see is up to you. If you have an open to all book, or friended. Tyhe other posters or posers are just having fun making you paranoid.

Re: Can Someone See You Looking at their Facebook?
Let me rephrase that. I meant legally obtain, as others suggested within TOS. Others have been or will be easily caught and viamitly prosecuted. Towards the top of the app it says. "For privacy reasons, this app only lists users who have already interacted with your profile at least once within the time of yourfriendship (perhaps by writing or commenting on your wall, or I" I like" ing something). Even Creepers or Stalkers (predators)are protected by Facebook Privacy, and will never be revealed, by this or any other app" so pretty much, it will show the person(Drunk that talk to you the most, comment, etc.not the person that actually goes on your profile the most amount of times. We are all probably grateful for that. Otherwise, that would be embarassing. lol if you went on someones' facebook a ton of times. A Crush? Jealosy? or just nosy or trying to get someone elses facebook you are actually trying to get a hold of because they may be friends or family,etc. of that person. Again nothing to worry about if you are a casual un harming "friendly stalker". If you are a real creeper , get a life or better yet get some professional help.

Re: Can Someone See You Looking at their Facebook?

Exclamation Mark trackers are not allowed on facebook. it's against the TOS.  a facebook app and the authors would be banned from facebook.  Persons who somehow find a way to put trackers on their profiles would be in violation of the TOS as well.

the current facebook trackers that are advertised don't work.  although i have heard of talk of a google analytics code telling you how many visitors you have had to your profile.  i'm not sure of where that is in regards to the TOS though.

if someone came out with a functioning FaceBook tracker, i would not run the risk of putting it on my profile.  wouldn't want my profile deleted!

YES. you can become a fan of "who is looking my profile" on facebook and it will show you who was looking at your profile, dates, times etc.

NO !!! Facebook does not allow this for us thats not even possable on facebook I watched a video on this there is no way anyone can see this . only the FBI can see what you have done on facebook thats it no one else can . and the FBI has to get paper work to do so . so rest easy on this . I look at facebook like this it is nothing but a place for nosey people to be nosey . after all if everbody was your friend on facebook than why are there profile pages BLOCKED what are they hiding afyter all aren't they your friends ?

are you sure? i would think that would only work for those who choose to participate in that, and wouldn't track anyone who wasn't a willing participant.

Re: Can Someone See You Looking at their Facebook?

I'm on facebook everyday...I've never seen a view counter. Its not like myspace....Facebook is very tight on privacy...If you don't want to be seen, you won't be seen or found! I'm sure theres ways...but not for the average joe. I don't even think that facebook allows trackers.

YES. I know someone who has a programme on FaceBook that allows him to check who has been logging on to their account, when they log on and how long for. As a result I deleted my account.

I believe that the side bar, where it shows you a quick shot of some your friends has a relationship with who's viewed your page.

Re: Can Someone See You Looking at their Facebook?

not the case - - from Facebook:

Facebook currently does not provide an application that allows users to track profile views or statistics on the views of any specific user content. Third party developers, however, may offer applications that provide some of this functionality. Please keep a few things in mind for these applications:

Applications CANNOT track profile visits for users who simply go to another person's profile; Facebook has made this technically impossible.

In order to be tracked by an application, you will need to specifically agree to allow the application to track your actions.

Adding an application that provides this functionality is purely optional. If you do not want to participate, please do not add the application to your account.
