Even though I am a LinkedIn Profile Writer, I do spend time on Facebook. It’s my guilty pleasure! One of the things that I often see are spammy links deposited on my Facebook wall that promise the ability to “see who has viewed your Facebook profile!” Apparently this is extremely tempting to people because they giddily click on the link only to find themselves in a rat’s nest of spam, viruses, and Trojan horses. I am going to let you in on a little secret… Facebook DOES NOT allow the ability to see who has viewed your profile. If you see a link promising that ability, run the other way!
ON THE OTHER HAND, LinkedIn allows you to spy on your profile readers! Yes, it’s true! You can see who has viewed your profile!!! Wait! Don’t get too excited. There is a caveat.
