Who Views Your Facebook Profile

  • Posted by DCC Scotland on 10 November 2014

If you'd like to view it for yourself, you can easily find this list by viewing the source code of your profile page. To do this, just go to your profile page, right-click in an empty area on the side, and select 'View Page Source.'
This will you show the page's source code. From here, go ahead and pressCommand+F (Mac) or Control+F (Windows) to open the find feature. In the search field, enter InitialChatFriendsList and you'll be taken to the list in the code.

However, it will not show names or links to your friends' profiles. Instead, it shows their Facebook IDs (numbers).

This large list of profile IDs (each separated by commas) is actually your full list of friends.

Turning Numbers into Names

To see whose face matches a number, go ahead and copy the number ID of who you want to check out. You only need to copy the full number that appears in-between the quotation marks, and before the hyphen (the last number after the hyphen doesn't matter).

Then just paste it into a new tab or window using the URL below, substituteNUMBERID for your friend's actual ID number.


Hit enter and you'll be taken to your friend's profile.
