How to see anonymous people who see my story on Facebook

Other viewers or anonymous people are Facebook users who saw your story who are not your friends. If someone other than your Facebook friend sees your story, it will be counted as other viewers. This happens because your privacy settings for stories are set to public.

Unfortunately, there is no way to know who the anonymous people are who see your Facebook stories. Facebook has decided to keep this information confidential. What you can do is prevent strangers or friends from seeing your stories.

If your Stories setting is set to ” Public “, everyone on Facebook can see your story. To avoid this, you must set the privacy settings to ” Friends “. On your cell phone, go to Facebook, click on stories and choose Story settings > Friends > Save.
