Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

How can I find out who are my profile visitors?

Install a virus on one of the Stack Exchange Valued Associate's work computers, log in very, very early one morning, and alter the codebase slightly. If that's not an option, install a virus on every Stack Exchange user's computer and have it tell your web server every time they visit your profile. If that's not an option, work your way up the ranks in the NSA, then bug the dataline to the Stack Exchange servers. If that's not an option, buy Stack Exchange and Make It So(TM). – Adam Davis Aug 11 '14 at 13:30

You can't. This isn't Linkedin or some other glorified social network.

-1: A simple "you can't" would have been enough. – Pëkka Aug 11 '10 at 11:55
@Pekka: What's wrong with providing a rationale? I despise answers that don't. – Nicholas Knight Aug 11 '10 at 12:00
you and I can't really provide a useful rationale, because we didn't build the site. Even though you are probably right, it adds no value to the answer and sounds unfriendly and snarky to me. – Pëkka Aug 11 '10 at 12:02
@Pekka: "It's not a social network" is also the standard answer of those who did build the site to questions about why SO isn't more like a social network. It's hardly a secret. – Nicholas Knight Aug 11 '10 at 12:04
@Pekka: Conveying truth is not unfriendly or snarky. – Nicholas Knight Aug 11 '10 at 12:08
