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.

Re: List of 10 Friends On Facebook Profile
So I look at my exes profile, yes you could say I'm stalking, and he always has this one girl as his first friend on the list. So then i look at her friends list and he is number two on hers. Does that mean that they are private messaging each other, or just interacting publicaly?

A girl I liked I had a falling out with, she was on my top 9 all the time (before the falling out). After we stopped texting, Facebook messaging, etc. cold turkey. She doesn't show up at all. I never directly look at her profile either.

I have a feeling that she tailored her preferences to block out certain photo posts, etc. I had her under a "Group" category list by herself to tailor my stuff to limit what she sees out of me.....sometimes it says a number in the "all by herself group" where there should be updates, but I look in the group, and there's no change. I guess its proof that things are being published but I'm unable to see them.

Hi, I'm just curious why you still have your ex as a FaceBook friend, instead of defriending him. The only reason I'm curious is because my husband still has 3 of his exes on his FaceBook page. I have asked him repeatedly to remove them as I feel they are only there so he can FaceBook stalk them, but he hasn't. Thanks!

People I haven't contacted on facebook for months and who I was never active with pop-up to the number one spot in the top 10. So, I must conclude that they are looking at my page regularly since they are up at the top.

Re: List of 10 Friends On Facebook Profile
Thank you for a very interesting and highly probable explanation; it has been driving me a bit batty to keep looking at the same faces in those 10 boxes. I maintain a small number on my list, including my mother, so here's where the theory hits a snag (darn): due to illness, my mother hasn't been on FaceBook for at least a year, and she is almost always in one of the friend boxes. While I love looking at my mother, it is annoying to always see her on my page. That pretty much applies to everyone, with the exception of my beloved. One step further, "Murphy's Law" apparently rules that I will be forced to always see the few I don't enjoy viewing, all the time.

if you have the facebook app on your phone, they also have access to who you text and call. your "top friends" does have to do with frequency of communication, but the communication doesn't have to be thru facebook itself. creepy right?

Recent Findings....

top 6 box shows people I interact with the most (usually messaging/group chat or attend the same events) and a few random ones I believe might be viewing my profile.

I tried to stalk 2 friends of mine and they just wouldn't show up until I messaged one of them and had a little chat he then began to appear.
I think it's based on mutual interaction since when I stopped to view/message my crush's profile he stopped to appear in the box but in the box of 8 (but doesn't stay there, he would just appear for a few hours then off) until I started to view his page again (without commenting/talking to him) he started to appear in the box of 6 again and sometimes the box of 8.

top 8 box shows people I recently posted/liked their status/wall plus one to two random ones.

others see a different set of friends than you do...so you can't tell what he/she sees on his/her own page
