If you were to say you've never wondered who's been looking at your Facebook page, you'd be lying. We're all interested in the people who've been searching for us and flicking through our profile pictures.

And although apps that claim to tell you who's been on your profile exist, they evidently don't workwhich is why you're here, reading an article titled: 'How to know who's been stalking you on Facebook'.

The answer? Facebook's fancy new feature, which shares a distinct likeness with Instagram Stories and Snapchat Stories.

Yep, Facebook Stories existsa function on the Facebook app that allows you to upload photos and videos for a 24-hour period, and see which of your friends have viewed them, and which specific bits they've watched.


OK OK, so this isn't an exact way to see who's been on your profile and what they've been looking at, but it will almost definitely unearth some long lost 'friends' who are still interested in what you're doing every day.

People on Twitter aren't convinced about the whole thing though, calling Facebook out for 'copying' Instagram and Snapchat stories, with one person writing: "Facebook stories aren't and will never be a thing", and another adding: "Snapchat stories made sense. Instagram stories I let slide. But Facebook stories is where I draw the line."
