Facebook, the worlds biggest social network, has been prime land for people to exercise their stalking capabilities for years.

Can you solve Elon Musk's favourite interview riddle?

Whether you find yourself late at night scrolling around the profile of an ex or you have decidedyou want to see the pictures from your hairdressers holiday to Greece in 2010, most people love a good stalk on Facebook.

Facebook allows its hundreds or millions of users to search, stalk, creep and enjoy the full scope the social network offers.

One of the main novelties surroundingFacebook is the anonymity of your stalking abilities.

However, rumours circulating on the world wide web had people worried that what they thought was innocent anonymousstalking actually had a consequence.

A rather embarrassingone.

The idea that if you viewed someones profile on Facebook your name would come up in their People You May Know section was doing the rounds, and it has people in hysterics regularly.

The rumours aremost likely not true, and as Facebook has asserted multiple times that people do not know who views their profile.

Facebook states on their website that: Facebook doesnt let people track who views their profile.

There are also apps you can sign up to or even buy to see who is viewing your personal private profile but they cannot, in fact, provide the functionality they promise and Facebook says: Third-party apps also cant provide this functionality. If you come across an app that claims to offer this ability, please report the app.

The answer is no, someone cannot tell if you have been looking at their Facebook and stop being paranoid, throw caution to the wind and stalk to your hearts desire.

Facebook did, however, introduce Facebook Stories this year and you can see who views those posts and ho has viewed your Facebook story, much like Instagram and Snapchat versions of the feature.
