List of 10 Friends On Facebook Profile

On the newest Facebook profile, how does Facebook determine which 10 friends show up on your profile?  I thought it was based on who you communicate with the most.  But I regularly show up in the top 10 of one of my friend's profiles.  (They never show up on mine).  We don't really communicate with each other on Facebook.  Does this mean my friend is looking at my profile a lot?  Thanks.

It means you are looking at them a lot.

No it doesn't mean you're looking at them a lot. Half of the "Friends" in my 10 list are people I haven't "looked" at in months.

It show's the people that look at your profile a lot. That explains why sometimes there are people on that list that you don't talk to much or look at that much.

Do you have a link to the Facebook support article that confirms this? Because based on our testing, this is not correct and this statement is nothing more than urban-legend..

Why would they bother to confirm it? Test it again, it's true.

Well this is huge news! But.. why is the list totally different when looking at the profile 10 seconds later..and totally different again 10 seconds after that? Almost like if it's...random? Please explain and clarify.
And, Facebook wouldn't need to 'confirm' per se, but surely there is a Help page that answers 'how is the list of 10 friends determined' where it says 'these are the friends that look at your page the most'.. I mean, right?

I don't know about your profile, but my list shows to same 10 people whether I look at it now, or 10 seconds later, or 10 seconds after that. There is the OCCASIONAL 1 or 2 person difference. I have over 400 friends to choose from so it can't possibly be random that the same ones show up consistently.

I refreshed my profile page 10 times. Out of these ten times, only 3 people have changed. 7 of the 13 people are people whom I do not talk to - well never. They are people I have lost contact with. What does this mean?

Nothing.. It's random.

Not really random. Refreshed by page at least ten times. Used 3 different browsers. Still same 10 people just in different order. Definitely not random.
