The world’s largest social networking site, Facebook, was founded by Mark Zuckerberg in 2004. A student at Harvard University at that point, Mark had initially created “thefacebook” for college students to connect with each other. However, even Zuckerberg hadn’t imagined how big Facebook was going to become, and how much internet users were going to love it. Today, Facebook has over 2.8 billion active users worldwide, making it the most popular social media platform in the world.
Facebook’s rise to fame can be attributed to its easy-to-use interface and how it let users from around the world connect with one another. It allows people to share photos, videos, and messages with friends and family, making it the default destination for socializing. In addition, Facebook’s Feed ensures users are presented with content that’s relevant to them, further increasing its likeability.
Facebook has continued to introduce new features like Facebook Live, which allows users to broadcast live videos. Marketplace is another such feature; it enables users to conduct their business online on the platform, allowing them to target their audience more optimally. It has also acquired other popular apps like Instagram and WhatsApp, which cemented its position as the dominant social media giant.
Today’s blog will discuss how you can see the users who have viewed your story after 24 hours.
How to See Who Viewed Your Facebook Story After 24 Hours?
First and foremost, we’d like to answer your initial question: Facebook does not provide an official method to see who viewed your story after 24 hours. But don’t worry; we also have alternative options that could be the answer to your problem.
As social media platforms are becoming an important part of our lives, it’s natural to be curious about who viewed our social media stories. Facebook, being one of the most widely used social media platforms, offers a feature to share temporary posts, known as Facebook Stories.
On Facebook Stories, you share pictures or videos that will disappear after 24 hours. In this blog, we will discuss some methods to view your Facebook Story viewers even after its time has ended.
Method 1: Use third-party apps
There are many third-party apps on the market that claim to show you who viewed your Facebook Story even after 24 hours. Keep in mind that these apps aren’t affiliated with Facebook and might need access to your Facebook account.
So, you must remain careful while granting access to such apps; they might collect your personal data. Some of these apps might even charge a fee for their services.
One such app is the Story Saver app, available on both iOS and Android platforms. It’s the highest rated in terms of efficiency, but it’s still only by third-party tool standards.
Similarly, you can try other third-party apps such as StoryWatcher, Story Stalker, and Story Views to satiate your curiosity.
However, keep in mind that these apps are generally unreliable and might not provide accurate information.
Method 2: Take screenshots
Another way to check out who viewed your Facebook Story after it disappeared is by taking screenshots of your Story viewers’ list before under 24 hours.
When you post a Facebook Story, you can view the viewers’ list by swiping up. Take a screenshot of the viewers’ list before it disappears, and you can open it later to see the viewers.
Method 3: Analyze story insights
Before we proceed, we’d like to mention that this method isn’t applicable to all kinds of Facebook accounts. Moreover, it’s also not the top of the list when it comes to accuracy or efficiency.
Facebook provides story Insights to business accounts, allowing them to see the number of views, impressions, and engagements on their stories. However, on the downside, story Insights don’t provide the names of the viewers, but only the number of views.
Method 4: Asking viewers directly
If you’re here looking for an answer, it’s possible you’re looking for a specific person’s view. Think about it: even if you’re looking for the full list, doesn’t one name stand out?
The most straightforward, albeit a bit difficult method is to ask your viewers directly. Simply reach out to them and casually ask them if they happened to see your story, because you had posted something truly weird.
While this method won’t give you with a comprehensive list, it might just tell you what you really wanted to know.
