How To See A Log of Everything You Have Ever Done on Facebook
Social networking app/website, Facebook keeps an activity log of all its users do int it. It records things you like, post, or share on someone else’s timeline. Facebook lets you view all that, and in this post, we will be talking about how to check your Activity Log on Facebook.
What Activity Log is Used For
Finding out you can check every Facebook interaction you have ever had and going through them might seem a bit terrifying and maybe creepy even. Well, it is beneficial though.
Go to your News Feed on Facebook, and you will see different posts which your friends have liked or commented on. If your friends didn’t share such posts, they wouldn’t appear on their timeline. The way you see such notifications about your friends is the same way your friends also receive notifications about your friends too. The only way which you can see what all the others might see it by going to your Activity Feed. Check each item there, and you will see some people who can see each of them. In the screenshot below, for example, all of Ferdy’s friends can see that I’ve commented on his post. There is a huge chance that Facebook has displayed that activity to some of our mutual friends too.
You can also use the Activity Feed to make sure that apps aren’t doing stuff on your Facebook account without you being aware. I, for example, check it every time I give a new app permission to do something on my Facebook account just to make sure it hasn’t posted to his timeline or done something else which I didn’t give permission to do. In the screenshot below, you can see that, although Spotify has posted something to Facebook, only I can see what it posted (the lock icon means it is private).
You can also undo anything you have done on Facebook from the Activity Feed. To do this, click the edit button (the little pen icon) beside any post to edit it. Here, you can unlike, delete or hide such post. So, if someone tries to “frame” you by liking a few hundred Wizkid fan pages, Activity Feed is the easiest way to undo all whatever has been done.
How To Access Your Activity Log on Facebook
Log in to your Facebook account, go to your profile, and then click the “View Activity Log” button which is at the bottom right of the cover photo space.
The Activity Log will come up as a big list of everything you have ever done on Facebook.
If you can’t seem to find what you are looking for, you can use the “Activity Search” box. You can also use the search box if what you are looking for is an older activity. You can also perform filters on the feeds to bring up specific types of activities by choosing one option from the ones provided in the sidebar on the left. You can also navigate through different years with the sidebar on the right side.
If you are on mobile, you can check your activity log on Facebook’s mobile app by going to your profile and tap “Activity Log” below your cover photo.
