In this article, I’m going to share how to see who viewed your Facebook story and other related queries.
Firstly, let’s talk about Facebook Stories.
Facebook Stories are disappearing photos and videos that can be viewed twice and disappear after 24 hours. Facebook Stories was first introduced in March 2017 but were only available for a select few users. The feature was rolled out globally to all users on July 2nd, 2017.
To create a Facebook Story, open the Facebook app, tap in the upper left corner of the screen, take a photo or video or upload one from your phone’s library and then tap to add it to your story.
There are several ways to customize your Facebook Story. When you begin creating a story, you’ll see four icons in the lower right-hand corner of the screen: Text, Stickers, Markup, and Aa.
The text allows you to add text on top of an image or video. Tap this icon to open up a menu with different fonts and colors you can use.
Stickers include emojis and other graphics that can be placed on top of an image or video. Tap this icon to open up a menu with different sticker options (date/time stamp, current weather conditions, birthday cake). You can also search for stickers by tapping the search bar at the top of the screen (e.g., searching for “dog” will bring up dog-related stickers.
Now, let’s shift our focus to this – How to see who viewed your Facebook story?
How to See Who Viewed Your Facebook Story
The ability to see who viewed your Facebook story is only available on the Facebook mobile app.
Steps to see who viewed your Facebook story:
1. On the Facebook app, navigate to your profile page (it’s the one with your name at the top).
2. The first thing you’ll see is a circle with your profile picture in it and the words “Add to Story” underneath. Click on this.
3. Once you’ve taken or uploaded a photo, you can add text or stickers to it by tapping them on the screen. You can also add a location to your image by clicking “Add Location,” which will let people see where you are when you posted. Once you’re done decorating, click on “Your Story.”
4. After that, friends will be able to view your post, and you’ll be able to see who has viewed it below your story.
How to see who viewed your Facebook story that you are not friends with
Facebook doesn’t allow you to see who viewed your Facebook story if they are not your friends on Facebook. You can only see the number of views and the names of people who viewed your story in case they are your Facebook friends.
However, you can see the names of people who might have viewed your story from your followers’ list.
The reason why Facebook doesn’t allow you to see who has viewed your story is to prevent cyberbullying and other social issues associated with it.
Can you see how many times someone has viewed your Facebook story?
In the future, Facebook may have a feature to see how many times your story was viewed. But, as of now, you can’t see the views of your Facebook story.
The only way to check the views on your Facebook story is by checking the ‘Seen’ list. You can see who has seen your story here. Just go to your profile, tap View story, and then swipe up on the screen. A list of people who have seen your story will appear at the bottom of your screen.
Can you see who viewed your story on your Facebook business page?
When you create a Facebook page, a Story is created at the same time. The Story is located just under the cover photo and profile picture at the top of your page.
The Story is updated when you post on your page or if other users check into your business. You can also tag your business in posts and photos by using ‘@’ and then typing the name of your business to update the Story.
The list of users who have viewed your story appears directly below it. User names are listed with their profile pictures next to them. Only people who have liked your page can be featured in the story viewer list.
