Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I would like to know

  1. where I can see who has viewed my profile?
  2. where I can see who has downvoted and upvoted my questions and answers?
  3. where I can see who has viewed my questions?

Is there a feature which would allow me to find the information requested above?

1. Nowhere, 2. Nowhere, 3. Nowhere. The voting is private for good reasons, tracking who viewed the questions or profiles, why bother? – Daniel Fischer Jan 3 '13 at 10:49
just for information brother because everyone giving such feature including Facebook not by themselves but through third party apps. – Dipesh Parmar Jan 3 '13 at 10:50
@DanielFischer see this is the reason bro people come and down vote it without knowing answer because sometime user came who don't know answer at all but still they down vote that question because they don't know the answer. – Dipesh Parmar Jan 3 '13 at 10:52
@DipeshParmar that's quite a lot of assumptions right there. Fact is, without an admission of the user you can't know why you were voted up or down. And with all the previous discussions on the subject here, voting is most likely going to remain anonymous. – Bart Jan 3 '13 at 10:53
Repeat after me: Stack Overflow is not a Social Network. – Martijn Pieters Jan 3 '13 at 11:01
If people are upvoting / downvoting your questions suspiciously (such as the same person always downvoting you) then that would be tracked and picked up by the moderators and the general site audits 'behind-the-scenes' so if you're concerned about serial downvoters then that's a separate issue that is already able to be managed. – JonW Jan 3 '13 at 11:01
Half duplicate: Is there a way to see who voted on your posts? – hims056 Jan 3 '13 at 11:12
@DipeshParmar You do realize that Facebook apps which purport to show who has visited your profile are all scams, right? (I guess not...) – Andrew Barber Jan 3 '13 at 19:21

Addressed individually:

where I can see who has viewed my profile

You can't. As far as I know this information is not even recorded beyond the server logs. There's no reason to show it. Stack Overflow is not a social network.

where I can see who has downvoted and upvoted my questions and answers?

You can't. Voting is private. Users need to be able to use their votes as they see fit based on the quality of the post they're voting on without worrying about confrontation. They have an option to leave a comment to explain their vote, but it's just that - an option. The only people that can see your votes are developers, and they have to work rather hard to get it. That's how it was designed.

where I can see who has viewed my questions?

You can't. Similar to profile views, this data isn't interesting in the context of asking and answering questions. This would be useful for a site like Facebook or Linkedin where the focus is deliberately placed on ephemera.

We share and curate programming knowledge, no more - no less. Take a look at the FAQ index, it's a pretty nice summary of how the site works and a rather comprehensive list of features, just broken down into small pieces that are easy to digest.

Voting is private on Stack Exchange. And I don't see any reason behind seeing who viewed my profile and posts.

If it would be a , I am sure it would be declined

I re-tagged this as support, as I don't think he's proposing the feature. – Tim Post Jan 3 '13 at 11:26
@TimPost - You haven't re-tagged yet.... – hims056 Jan 3 '13 at 11:30
Weird, I did actually. Did it again, appears to have taken. – Tim Post Jan 3 '13 at 11:32
@TimPost - Now it is updated. :) – hims056 Jan 3 '13 at 11:33
