How To Test What Your Facebook Profile Looks Like To Others

Title image

I am sure you must have wondered about the outlook of your Facebook profile and how it is viewed by the others who stalk you. More importantly it is important to keep track of what information is being given away to others, as one of those stalkers might be a job recruiter or an old relative looking out for you on the social media.

Under such circumstances you need to keep a balance of the personal or public information on your Facebook profile so a potential beneficial stalker like a job recruiter or may be a date gets viable information that is required and is restricted to what you would not like them to see.

For this, you need to see how your profile looks like to the general public. Here is how you can do that.

Step # 1 : Go to your Facebook profile and click on the cog icon visible at the bottom right of your cover photo. Choose View As from the short drop down menu that appears. This is shown in the figure 1.0 below.

Step # 2: Successful execution of step 1 will take you through to the view of your Facebook profile to an average user. This will be how, people who are not friends with you on Facebook, might view your profile. You can scroll down and have a look at all of your posts and photos that are public and make any modifications accordingly. A general view of my Facebook profile to an average user is shown below in figure 1.1.

All you need to do is click on the View as Specific Person at the top of your cover photo as shown in the previous image of figure 1.1. Just enter the person's name and there you are looking at your profile from his/her eyes.
