It sounds as though they have their profile set to private..which I do on mine. But even if you get into someones profile I don't think it will tell them that you have looked at it..as far as I know. I could be wrong though.

You can't look at any profiles on Face book unless a) you are already friends b) they poke you or send you a message (and even them its usually just a limited profile. In some groups/networks you can look at the profiles of other members but only if their profile is set up that way. I think the default setting on Facebook (as opposed to say Bebo) is that even if you don't have really high privacy settings its still hard to view people without have some contact with them iykwim.

yeah like the other posters have said you have to be friends with someone to look at their profiles. you have to click 'friend request' which will ask them to confirm that they know you and then you can access their profile. without doing this the most you can see if who they're friends with by clicking 'view friends' although some people also make this private.
