There's no authorised way to see who has viewed your Facebook profile, according to Facebook -- whether through your settings or via a third-party application. However, many people are seduced by scam applications that claim to allow you to see who has visited your profile. Despite such claims, Facebook states that no application can help you see who's been looking at your profile.

Your Facebook profile is the page and associated information that your friends see when they click on your name or avatar. You can choose various privacy options for your profile, from open to all to make only some information visible to chosen friends. However, within your profile no options allow you to view who has clicked on your profile, whether friend or not. You can see how your profile looks to other users by clicking the "Preview My Profile" button in the Customize Settings section in your privacy settings.
If you encounter an app that says it can show you who visited your profile, report it. Facebook recommends that you click the app's About page and find the "Report Application" link near the bottom of the page. If you see suspicious status updates in your friends' news feeds, message them and let them know that the application is bogus and that they should delete the message and remove the application as soon as possible.
