Yes, we would all like to know our stalkers and just how popular we are, but Facebook has made it clear that there is no ability to do that yet. Any third party apps that tell you they can tell you who's stalking you and how many pageviews your profile is getting aren't telling you the full story. There's always a catch. In this case, it's malware. The applications shows itself as a link saying “My total Facebook views are ___ (insert some number here). To see your profile views, click here (insert malicious link here)”.

Curiosity won't really kill you, just expose you. Forever.

The link takes you to a survey asking you for some pretty personal information after promising you the goods at the end of the survey. Many people take the survey thinking it's just a formality. And then they get a random number at the end of it. The survey is really a spammer's way of getting into your computer (when agreeing to take the survey, you're agreeing to the spammer infiltrating your computer). Once in, he/she has full access to your personal data. And the number at the end of the tunnel is completely made up. Don't let it excite you/bring you down/change your life plans.
