I want to see who marked my questions as favorites

I can see that one of my questions has been added as a favorite by another user. I don't see how I can view who has marked it as a favorite. It would be nice to know who favorited your question. I am fairly new to the site so maybe there is a way to do this already. If not then it would be nice to have the functionality added.

SO/SE is not a social network though. So I don't see why you would want that information. What would you do with it? –  Bart Mar 16 '12 at 12:43

Do note that people use the "favorite questions" feature all different ways. In theory it might mean that they liked your question and wanted to save it for future reference. But in practice, it often just means that they temporarily "bookmarked" it, intending to come back to it. Maybe they weren't able to give a complete answer at the time but intend to do so later, or maybe they cast a close vote and want to make sure that the question actually gets closed, or whatever. It may not be positive feedback, or even feedback at all. –  Cody Gray Mar 17 '12 at 4:16

This is not currently possible via the site as it is.

However, FWIW, since a user's favorites are public information, you could look up who favorited your stuff using the Stack Exchange Data Explorer.

Incidentally, I already made a query that does this: Who favorited my questions?

Hey, I didn't know that the Stack Exchange Data Explorer existed. Thanks for letting me know. –  Linger Mar 16 '12 at 17:08
