💁🏽‍♂️ Why Someone’s Name is Missing from Viewers?

When a Facebook friend of yours has blocked you on Facebook right after she or he views your story, the name of the user will go missing from the viewer’s list, and instead of displaying the name, it will be counted under the other viewers and it will display as 1 viewer instead of showing the name.

1 viewer

When you’ve put up a story after changing the privacy but you’re still seeing 1 viewer under your story, it means that one of your friends has blocked you out of their account or you’ve blocked him, which is why their name is missing from the list of viewers and is presented by number.

So now, you won’t be able to view their profile name instead it will be shown as the number of other viewers.
