Facebook seem to have taken some action against facebook profile spying applications. Many of the crap applications reported spam by facebook users have been taken down by facebook. But still the thing to worry about is that the facebook profile spying spam is not spreading through apps only, in fact it is spreading with the help of Facebook Events, Pages and groups too. So facebook needs to filter out those spam pages, groups and events too.
Most of the profile spying groups, pages and apps takes you to a page that’s completely filled with advertisements and affiliate links. Quite often they ask users to complete certain offers or surveys (see screenshot below) after which users end up passing their important information to the spammers or downloading infected files to their PC.
You will find large number of facebook pages, groups and apps that claims to tell users about who checked/viewed their profile. Actually they all are spam. Their sole purpose is to get a large user following by tricking people and then directing them all to pages heavily loaded with advertisements which in turn generates revenue for them.
Facebook itself says that there is no way at all with which you can see/check who is visiting your facebook profile. This is what Facebook’s recent status update states about this rapidly growing spam.
On Facebook, there’s no way to see who has visited your profile. We’ve also prevented others from providing this functionality. We’re working hard to block and remove websites, Pages, and applications that claim to do this. If you see one, don’t be fooled, and report it to us immediately.
Following are some of the Facebook spam apps, events and pages along with their URL’s. If you wish you may report them to facebook as spam (this would take just few seconds) but still that would not make much difference because there are so many apps, pages, groups with same stuff under different names.

In order to get rid of these crappy profile visitor checking stuff Facebook must have a proper screening system to evaluate the content of any facebook app, page , group etc.
To stay away and safe from all these scams/spams please don’t ever join or go to any facebook page, app, group, event that claims to tell you about who visited your profile or similar kind of information. This will certainly help you stay safe on Facebook.
