Use parental control apps
If you want enter a Facebook profile without friendship, you can use some app for parental control, which allow you to control the activity that is carried out by other users on social networks, including Facebook.
When using this kind of applications, however, remember not to use them improperly: using them to control the activities of your children is legitimate, but the same cannot be said if you use them to control the activities of other people. In the latter case, in fact, a serious violation of privacy would be incurred, a crime punishable by law. Then don't tell me I didn't warn you!

Create a second Facebook account
Another way to see what is posted on Facebook by a user who is not your friend, is to create a second Facebook account and use it to ask for friendship from the person whose profile you want to see. By becoming his "friend", in fact, you should be able to see much more information about his Facebook profile than a "non-friend".
Before creating a second profile, however, be careful! On Facebook (as with many other social networks) it is forbidden to create "secondary" accounts or fake profiles: by doing this you could violate the conditions of use of the service and run into the closure of your account. I warned you! OK?
If you have problems or difficulties in creating a new Facebook account, do not hesitate to examine the tutorial in which I show in detail how to create a Facebook account: there you will find all the info you need to proceed.
After creating your “secondary” Facebook profile, you will need to send the friend request to the user whose profile you want to see, hoping that he will accept the request. To submit your request, click on the white button add to friends (from PC) or presses on the symbol oflittle man (from mobile). If the user in question accepts, you will be able to see more information relating to the Facebook profile of the user in question (based on the privacy settings used by the latter) without having asked for a friendship with your “main” profile.How to join a Facebook profile without friendship
