    https://chrome.google.com/webstore /detail/profile-visitors-for-face/ ihjbpjahiibmjdlcgodcnmpelpmilamk/details?hl=en ... how about this one .. is it also a fake? .. I heard that some people installed it, or they got the word "visitor" on their timeline .. I don't know if it actually worked for them or not.. but I really need to know ..

      Yes, they are all fakes. Currently, Facebook doesn't allow any application to tell you who have visited your profile.
