Unlike other social media, like LinkedIn, you can easily see who’s viewed your profile using the provided tool, but Facebook is still not ready to show that feature, although many users wanted to have that.
Is there a way to find out who always viewing my Facebook profile?
While searching and finding a way to see who are checking Facebook profile or if it is possible, I came across some popular ways that are shared online.
Many videos with millions of views and popular pages, sharing the same instruction on how to find out who is viewing your Facebook profile, they use InitialChatFriendsList.
This can be found when viewing the source code for your profile and the list of the numbers that follows is the list of IDs that are arranged from top which shows the one who constantly viewing your profile.
To tell you the truth, this method is not precisely the list of people that are constantly viewing your profile, instead, this is the list of friends that you have recently interacted with (in chat, message, comment thread, etc).
Why I said this is not the list of who recently checked your profile is because I tested it, I tell some of my friends to check my profile for some times and check if the list changed, it didn’t.
How to find InitialChatFriendsList
If you still want to check using the InitialChatFriendsList, I will share with you the steps.
1. On your Facebook Profile, perform right-click in the empty area on the side, then select “View Page Source”
2. It will open the page source of your profile, to find the list simple press CTRL + F (Windows) or Command + F (Mac) and enter InitialChatFriendsList then press enter. You will be taken to the list of codes which is the Facebook ID of your friends.
3. To convert numbers into Facebook profiles, simply put this into your browser address bar https://www.facebook.com/NUMBERID, and change the NUMBERID with the first group digit numbers that you find right after InitialChatFriendsList, do not include number after hyphen (-).
If you are checking source code, and it seems complicated to you, then, you can see this visually using the chat window. If you are using Facebook in the browser, you will see on the right side of your friends’ list. You can also use this to observe who you constantly chat with like the InitialChatFriendsList.
What you have to do is turn off the chat and then refresh your web browser, then turn it back on again using the gear icon. The first friend that appears on the top is most likely to be your Facebook friend that you recently interacted with.
