Who’s Stalking You on Facebook?
Thanks to a fun Friday night nerd session with some colleagues, I recently learned how to find out who my top Facebook stalkers are. Don’t try to pretend like you’ve never been curious about who’s looking at your Facebook profile? Do you wonder if your ex still checks up on you or if the person you’ve secretly had a crush on for the last year is equally curious about you? Well search no further (at least for now). Thanks to an unnamed source (brilliant guy!), I’ve discovered how to see exactly who is interacting with your page the most… But before I reveal the secret, all I ask is that you +1 this page or tweet the link to this article (don’t share on Facebook…I don’t want them to fix the vulnerability in their code).
INSTRUCTIONS FOR FINDING FACEBOOK STALKERS
1. Sign into your Facebook account from Chrome.
2. Go to your profile page and select View > Developer > View Source
3. Once the tab with the html source code has popped up, search for “ordered_”. From there you will see a list of numbers. This is an ordered list of people that view your page, your messages, and engage with you the most on Facebook.4. To find out who each person is, type”http://facebook.com/paste-number-here” into your browser URL. For example, if the first number is “649805976” then type this into the URL >> http://facebook.com/649805976.
This reveals the person who looks at your page or your content the most. Here’s what I found so far from the sample of people that we’ve tested this with. If you are already in a relationship, chances are that your stalkers are the people that you love the most…your spouse, your siblings, your BFF’s….but if you’re single… watch out…you might be surprised by who’s spending their time gazing at you online.
Good luck…and next time think twice about stalking your ex 😉

If you fall between the ages of 18 and 22, chances are that you made your social networking profiles when you were a preteen and much of the content you posted is still floating around on the net. This is great if you want to take a stroll down memory lane, but not so great if you consider the fact that future employers may be taking a peek at your online activities to see what you have been up to. No need to panic! There are steps that you can take to repair the damage, or prevent you from making a mistake in the first place.
