One of the things that distinguishes and may be the cause of the success of Facebook than Friendster is the respect for privacy. In addition to the number of ads that really annoy users, Friendster is not also allow monitoring of user activity Friendster else if you see your account. Instead Friendster introduced the "Who's Viewed Me" in the month of September 2005 giving information who sees your Friendster profile and worse still this feature is enabled by default. For some people this may be interesting, especially enthusiasts dating sites or dating search sites to know who's visiting and see her profile. But this is clearly a violation of privacy and profile visitors will lead to reluctance to service users known activities. Instead, Facebook is not only the identification of account activity to support the activities of others even if she visited your profile, but it was clearly prohibits this and did not give permission to access the database for this activity, contrary to threaten anyone making applications (apps) monitoring activity monitoring another person's account will be blocked. Many apps that have suffered the fate of being blocked by Facebook, one of which is fancheck http://apps.facebook.com/fancheck/
RationaleIn the policy, Facebook is clearly saying that Facebook does not provide functionality to track who sees your profile, timeline or photos. 3rd party applications (apps) will also not be able to provide this function, and if there are apps that claim to perform these activities will be removed from Facebook for violating policy apps Facebook for doing victimization on the user. (See figure 1)
Figure 1, Facebook does not provide functionality to track who sees your profile.
If you are wondering why Facebook does not allow us to know who visited our profiles, but these profiles are belong to us the answer is quite simple, Facebook allows profile owners to determine who can view their profile, if the profile can be seen by the public, friend or himself alone. If you do not want your Facebook profile seen by the public, you can set up the [Custom Privacy] in option [Privacy Settings], and you can determine if your profile can be seen by the [Public], [Friends] [Friends of Friends], [Specific People or Lists] or [Only Me].Conversely, you can not determine when you just visit your friend's profile and did not do a post, like or comment, and without your knowledge you can tell your friends that you make a visit to their profile. If you agree, that means you agree with Facebook, if you do not agree with this, maybe you can consider using Friendster that allows this.
