Is There a Way to View My Facebook Profile Visitors?

Facebook is a way to connect with friends, family and business partners. If you are curious about who has looked at your profile, you won't find an official widget or app on your profile showing who has visited your page, looked at your pictures or read your comments. Facebook does allow third-party software developers to offer some of that functionality; the applications that can track profile views are listed in the Facebook application directory.
Navigate to the Facebook Applications Directory.
Type "Visitors" or "Top Stalker" into the search box, and then press the "Enter" key. A list of current applications will appear.
Choose an application that suits your needs. Click on an application's title to view the application details, then click the "Go to App" button at the top of the page.
Click the "Allow" button to accept the application and install it on your Facebook profile. The directions for how to use the application will appear after you install it.
Many applications require your Facebook friends to also accept the application for any stats to appear about how often they have visited your page.
Don't click on any links that lead you to a website outside of Facebook; you could be accepting a virus.
