Yes, it is possible. It is something called "stalking" someone, and Facebook has a feature for that (though not actually created for stalking people). In Facebook, there is something called the "Close Friends" list on Facebook. If you want to know everything that your friend did, you would add him/her onto this list and even his/her likes will appear on ...

It seems to be a useless app. I've not accepted any requests - Facebook already has the ability to post your birthday and alert your friends to that event.
