Génial pour suivre nos enfants

Très bonne appli

Excellent application que j'utilise pour partager ma position sur Facebook, le petit plus serait de savoir qui clique sur le lien. Je publie souvent sur Facebook en mode public avec "1 vue" ou plus mais je sais pas quel profil y va . Donc une prochaine mise à jour, il serait intéressant de dire quel personne vous observe au lieu de simplement 1 ou 2 ou 3 vues

Édit 1:
Je me répète mais lors d'un partage Facebook, serait-il possible d'identifier le profil qui vient cliquer sur le lien en cours de partage

Developer Response ,

Bon retour, merci!
