Whether you use Facebook personally or professionally, follower count is one of the best metrics you can use to know who might be visiting your profile outside of your close friends.
So, want to know how to see who is following you on Facebook?
The “follow” option is a quiet way to see your public posts instead of sending you a friend request, meaning there might be some people who can see your public updates (if your profile is public) without being on your friend list.

How to See Who Is Following You On Facebook
If your Facebook profile posts are set to “Public”, you can have followers. If it is set only for private, then you can’t have followers.
However, you can also allow users to follow you by selecting “Public” next to your post settings.
Follow the steps below to check your Facebook followers on your personal profile:
- Open up your profile and go to your “Friends” tab.
- Then, click on “Followers”.
- View your follower list there.
If you’re on the Facebook app, you can also see your follower count under your “About” section. Simply click on that count to see who is following you.
How to See Who Is Following Your Facebook Pages
More than checking your Facebook profile followers, you can also see the list of your own Facebook page followers.
Here is how to see who is following your Facebook page:
- Go to your Facebook page
- Select “Settings” from the left sidebar menu.
- Then, choose the “People and Other Pages” tab.
- Click on the dropdown menu from the page and select the “People Who Follow This Page” option.
- View your page followers list.
However, keep in mind that you may not able to see all of them because some people have made their profiles private.
