How to Know Who Visits Your Facebook Wall

by Carolyn Luck ; Updated September 28, 2017

The Facebook wall feature allows you to connect and share with friends by updating your status, posting photos and "liking" Facebook content. You'll find most of your Facebook activity displayed on your wall, which can leave you wondering just who is visiting it. While Facebook does not provide the technical means to allow you to track your page views, you can see the visitors who interact with your wall. Check your notifications and your wall to see who's been actively checking it out.

Email and Text Notifications

Sign in to your Facebook account.

Click the "Account Settings" option in the "Account" drop-down menu in the upper right corner of any page. Select the "Notifications" tab that appears in the upper toolbar of the resulting "My Account" page.

Scroll through the list of options that appear on the resulting "Notifications" page. Check off your desired options to receive notification of Facebook activity via email or SMS text. Wall activity options include "Someone Posts On Your Wall," "Tags You In A Photo" and "Comments On A Story On Your Wall." Click the "Save Changes" button that appears at the bottom of the page.

On-Site Notifications

Sign in to your Facebook account.

Click the "Notifications" icon in the upper left corner of any page. Note that any new notifications will appear as red alert notifications, depicted by the number of notifications in a red-colored bubble.

Click the "See All Notifications" link that appears at the bottom of the "Notifications" pop-up box. Scroll through the list of activity that appears on the resulting "Your Notifications" page. Items that pertain to your Wall will be listed with links to "Your Status" or "Your Wall" that, when clicked, will direct you to the activity.

Tip

  • You can also click the "Home" tab that appears in the upper right corner of any page upon signing in to your account. This allows you to scroll through your wall and view activity by "Top News" or "Most Recent."
