1st. Not everyone will click the link, especially any "stalker."
2nd. The IP... whoop dee doo, you use a geoIP site and find out somewhere within 20 miles someone visited the link, that narrows it down to everyone minus far away relatives... x/

Back in the day you could do this shit on myspace. It would involve writing a fairly simple algorithm that matched IP/UAs to the timings of comments on your page to make an educated guess on who was viewing your page .... only it was fairly trivial though because myspace let you directly embed HTML ( oh all the xss bugs a 15 yr old Thetan found at the time <3 )

Haha, yeah, MySpace was one fail of a security attempt, if ever attempted. xD

Unfortunately Facebook is pretty locked up.

I am quite sure you could also serve images and append them to your message.
Code: Select all
header("Content-type: image/$imagetype");
@readfile("My/pic.jpg");

Then you just embed it and boom! You get everyone's referrer.

I remember someone here is doing it with his signature.

This guide seems to imply otherwise.

Otherwise, I agree with you; facebook won't give out the info, even if they have it, unless you could get a subpoena. good luck in this case, lol.



First of all, any "stalker" (should one even be checking your Facebook) will most likely not follow any links you post. Just sayin'.


If they were seriously disturbed, I bet they would, given enticing enough bait. E.g. 'hey guys, check out my personal site'.


the refferer logger would be pointless unless you have the same script for multiple places, ie. Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, etc.


I thought at the time I wrote that that the referrer could track the page from which the post came--thought it might work if they clicked on it from their main 'wall', but that assumes they're friends with the target. Lol, my goof.

Thanks for fact checking my post; admittedly, I wrote it a bit too quickly before work.

That "guide" is 2 years old and does not imply it keeps track of every IP that visits a Profile page. If the person was stupid enough to continuously check out the page WHILE LOGGED IN then maybe.

But still, what are you going to figure out with the information you collect?

Not much but it's a piece of info you wouldn't otherwise have. It's a stretch but a person might have a website hosted with PII on it.

Also, it might be something to go on if something else happened, like someone tries to attack you irl. Turn whatever info you have over to the police and maybe they could find cause to actually get a subpoena.

I'm not claiming this is a great idea, but it's the best thing I could think of that would even have a chance at getting a 'facebook stalker' without a subpoena.

I don't think it's out of the question to think that facebook might keep this data. I'd think they'd mine every piece of data they could, don't you?

That said, you could be totally right; idk. I was just throwing an idea out there.

Well don't know what else can be said but otherwise these are the bare facts.

First off, no one is gonna break into facebook to view logs or whatever way facebook keeps track of things for you. This is extrememly difficult and a huge risk.

I am gonna assume your one of those people that add everyone on facebook that sends them a request. The best way which has been said is to put your facebook profile setting to max protection and also take a look at your friends. Don't just add people whos name you recognize.

In all honesty just be more protective of your information, and not so willing to add people on facebook.

Just link everyone there. Optionally encode the destination with base64. Anyone watching your wall and potentially stalking you would pass trough the logger. You can more info if you please; read the manual.


Focusing strictly on the code posted, I have to say that wont work. header will be run and you will be redirected before any of the logging code is run. Move the first line to the last line and you've got a better chance of it giving you the info you're looking for.

As for the thread itself, I have to agree with pretty much everyone who's spoken...if you're worried about stalkers, get off facebook. If you want to know who is viewing your profile, build your own social networking site, and add that functionality to it.
