What Is A Featured Viewer on Facebook


If you have a ‘Featured Photos’ section on Facebook, you must have also come across the terms, “Featured Viewers”, “Viewers” and “Others”. These terms are located in the “Insights” section, underneath each photo.

But, what exactly do they mean? What is a Featured Viewer on Facebook? Find out here!

What Is A Featured Viewer on Facebook?

Featured Viewers are friends who have looked at your photo. In other words, these are people on your friend list who clicked on your profile and then viewed your “Featured” story.

For instance, if you posted something and you can see that your photo has “2 Featured Viewers”, this basically means that two of your friends looked at this photo. Most likely, they were already on your profile for some reason or another, and decided to click in on them.

Can you see which friends viewed your Featured story?

No. This data appears to be anonymous. In other words, it is currently not possible to view a list of the friends who have looked at your Featured story. This is most likely by design, as such a feature would allow you to figure out who has been snooping around on your profile.

Viewers and Others on Featured Stories

So, now that you know about “Featured Viewers”, what exactly are “Viewers” and “Others”?

“Others” are non-friends who clicked into your profile and viewed your Featured story. On the other hand, “Viewers” appear to be the total number of friends and non-friends that have looked at your photo. In other words, it represents the sum of “Featured Viewers” and “Others”.
