Yes, it's the marketing lie and psychological manipulation technique known as "Creating a sense of agency". It is -- like "only 3 left, act now" -- designed to make someone order something via the bandwagon propaganda technique.

By making you think other people are looking at it, it makes you think "I better get it before it sells out" at the SUBCONSCIOUS level.
