Facebook: See Who Has Viewed Your Profile

Did somebody send you a link in Facebook telling you to that an application can see who viewed your profile or your pictures?

And did you really click on that link?

Well, the bad news is you’re a scam victim.

Status updates, Facebook groups, and pages claiming to let users see who has viewed their Facebook profile pages are all scams.

According to Facebook, there is no way for anyone to see who has viewed profile and they won’t let any application to create such function. It’s stated in their Security Page that they’ve prevented others from providing this functionality already and they are working hard to block and remove websites, Pages, and applications that claim to do this.

A typical message reads:

See who viewed your profilee original version 2.0:
now you can see who viewed your facebook profile

And mostly accompanied with a Status update from some of your friends (who unfortunately were victims of this scam already):

“OMG OMG OMG… I cant believe this actually works! Now you really can see who viewed your profile! on [LINK].”

“If you click on the link you are taken to a third-party website which (to the untrained eye) may at first glance appear to still be on the real Facebook site, but is in fact designed to trick you into sharing their link further,” wrote Graham Cluley, a Senior Technology consultant at Sophos, in his blog post.

Cluley suggests,”If you’ve been hit by a scam like this, remove references to it from your newsfeed, and revoke the right of rogue applications to access your profile via Account/ Privacy Settings/ Applications and Websites”.

Remember there is no such application to access your Facebook profile or parts of your profile, even Facebook denied it on their FAQ.

Facebook Privacy Going Public

If you are into Facebook, I think you seldom read the changes on their privacy policy.

Facebook is making big changes to its privacy settings that may mean millions of people begin to expose information that they previously considered to be restricted to only their Facebook friends to the entire internet.

According to Facebook definition of terms, "Information set to 'everyone' is publicly available information, may be accessed by everyone on the Internet."

Also, "The default privacy setting for certain types of information you post on Facebook is set to 'everyone.'

Facebook is aiming to get people to be more public on the site and that anyone who hasn’t changed their privacy settings will now see it “recommended” that their status updates, photos etc. be exposed to “everyone” – to the entire internet.

If you make your information available to “everyone”, it actually means “everyone, forever”.

You are free, of course, to change that setting.

If you’ve never edited your privacy settings before, Facebook will set the new default on the “transition” page to share all your posted content with everyone.

Only 15 to 20% of Facebook users have ever changed their privacy settings before, so 80 to 85% of people will now be switched by “recommendation” to share their content with the whole web.

There’s a real danger that people will go along with Facebook’s recommendations without considering carefully the possible consequences.

This is the first time a social network company – Facebook, to break the top 10 list. Facebook had been on the privacy blunders in the past but because of  the new privacy features that Facebook has offered, they were able to convinced the panel of judges to give the company a top spot on the “trusted list”. Some of the features added recently is the include friend list and increased control over public listings.

Among the criteria that were used in assessing the level of trustworthiness is whether a company:
