A message being shared on the social media platform instructs users on how to find a list of strangers who aren’t their Friends but are following their activity.
The post advises users to search “Following Me” on the Blocked section of Facebook‘s profile settings, which will draw up a list of names.
However, rather than a list of secret followers, the results are the names of people whose profiles include the letters from the words “following” and “me”. These words could appear in the user’s name, or any part of their profile.

“Learned something that was rather disturbing tonight. Time to tighten up security on your Facebook profiles!!” the hoax reads, “I just blocked about 20 foreign people from following my profile and I thought I was already locked down! If you go to Account Settings > Blocking > Block Users and type in ”following me“, without the quotes, you may possibly see a bunch of people following you that you don’t know Block each one and confirm!”
Currently, Facebook doesn’t allow users to see who is viewing their profile and has made no plans to introduce this feature.
The following button does however allow strangers to see public changes to your Facebook profile.
