How can I figure out who has visited my profile?

Is there any way to see which users have viewed my profile?

Either a simple distinct list (each user would only appear once) or a complete history of who and when?

    Why do you want this information? Could access to this data help the community at all?

    @Lix - curiosity, these could be users who have asked similar questions, share common interests or have favourited one of my questions - it could be a launching point for Chat.

    @SteB That gets dangerously closed to social networking, any hint at which is often shot down here. ;)

    While I don't want to turn SO into another social network site, doesn't any site with a vibrant community (like SO) have social-like attributes?

    @SteB - No, we are all nerds here. We don't socialize.

    Chat is really as far as the social aspect goes here. I also think that's part of its success. SO/SE does Q&A and does it really well. Keeping things "clean" of anything other than that is not a bad choice.

  • @Bart - good points, you've convinced me. After all, you can't see who up-voted or down-voted you.

    Any attempt at starting a chat with "Hey @meagar, I noticed you just viewed my profile" would drive me away from this network forever.

Simple answer: No. There is no way in which you can find out who viewed your profile. All this kind of data is anonymous. (If any of it is stored at all) I often wonder why the number of views is displayed at all.
