Can You See Who Views Your Featured Photos on Facebook

A Featured collection is comparable to Instagram’s highlight feature. It enables you to upload a collection of photographs or videos to your Facebook page for others to see. It will not be permanently erased if you remove a photo or video from your Featured section. 

In this post, we will be talking about the steps in which you can view your Facebook Featured stories.

What are Facebook Featured Photos?

Facebook Featured Photos

The Featured section of your profile allows the users to select images to highlight to let others learn more about you. It produces a replica of the original photo when you upload photos to your Featured area. This implies that the original photo’s likes and comments will not display on your Featured photo. The photographs are public, which means that anybody may see them, both on and off Facebook.

To upload photographs to the Featured section, follow these steps:

  1. In the upper right corner of Facebook, click your profile photo.
  2. To the left of the Intro, click Add Featured.
  3. Select Add New from the drop-down menu.
  4. To add photographs, click the checkboxes next to them.
  5. Select Next
  6. Save the file.

Learn how to modify or delete photographs you’ve contributed to the Featured section in your account.
