Facebook is Displaying who all visited your Profile Recently. . .

    Well Its not a trick.. its not an application.

    facebook themselves are showing the recent visitors.

    5 days back I met one of my very old friend whom I met around 4-5 years back in my Mathematics coaching. Till now I have never seen him on Facebook but 3 days back suddenly in my "People you may know" section on my FB Home Page my friend's name came. I was high surprised how come Facebook know about this ? We have got no mutual friend and still Facebook finds it out..

    My doubt was then 100% clear when I called him and ask him did he visited my profile. he got shocked and said ya he searched me the day we met and how come I know.

    To test it more yesterday I asked one of my Office friend who was not in my friend list to open facebook from my office itself and ask him to visit my profile twice.

    To my surprise just an hour back I can find him too in my "People You may Know" list.

    So well People you may know are no one but those who have visited your profile.

    Those people whom you are sharing your many mutual friends are given high priority to enter your People You may Know List.


    I am sure this Information would be highly useful.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Focequartz

    Perhaps I can't agree with you.

    "People you may know" list the friends which are related to your account profile. I tried to create a new FB account, there are no "people you may know" list on the right side of my account. Then I ask my friend to visit my new account, still no "people you may know" list. But after I filled some information for the account, such as College,High School..them there are a list of friends shows in the "you may know" list. Check one of friend, it also comes from the same high school with my account.

    That's my testing experience. If you have any other interests, welcome to share with us. :D

    Well I have mentioned my experience in the very first post how a person with whom i do not have any mutual friends 's name appears in "people you may know" When I asked him, he himself told me that he visited my profile 2 days back..

    Same case I tested with my office friend too. Well thats my testing experience . Which is quite true

    there are many people on FB with whom I am having 50+ mutual friends and they were in my college but not my friends, why didn't their name ever reflect on my "People you may know" List.

    I have observed many things before making this thread.
    I posted what I felt, and what I feel is the possibility.

    Well Views are invited .... lets discuss on this more if there are any contradictions

    Well, I think we can't say all the recent visitors will be showed in the "You may know" list, and also can't say all the friends in the "you may know" list are recent visitors.

    My personal opinion is facebook choose some ppl who have related information with the account by random (there are too many related accounts with it, facebook can't show all the friends in this list). But if the recent visitors have some related information with this account, it may be also in the "you may know" list. Have related information with the accounts, that's why there are lots of marketers want to add friends for his accounts from "People you may know" list.

    So what about your thoughts? Glad to discuss this problem with you. :D

    IMHO, I think FB does show who visited your profile recently in a general search with just one or 2 letters, if they are not on your friends list. There is a caveat. You must have visited their profile at a time as well. I know that if I visit someones page right before the search, if I just press one letter , either first or last name , their name appears first. I discipline myself , not to check their profile for a while. When I do this, I will notice even a couple months later or longer, their name appears first many times with the first letter. Again this is my opinion and I could be wrong. Do not think I am though.

    in my opinion both the things are right.of course facebook is not keeping eye on the people who are visiting our profile.but facebook is helping us and collecting data like our mutual friends and friends from same school and collages.so we can easily find them.and keep in touch with them.:)
