50 Ways to Define Facebook Stalking, According to You


A little while ago, we conducted The Most Epic Facebook Survey Ever. We asked you guys about everything from how annoying sonogram photos in your newsfeed are, to how many of you have broken up with someone simply by changing your status. We also asked you about Facebook stalking (don’t act like you’ve never done it). If you took the survey, you’ll know that we asked you to define Facebook stalking.

And you guys gave us weird, creepy, hilarious and wacky answers. We learned that some of you are really weird and will probably be arrested soon if you continue your stalking ways, and we learned that some of you are practically undercover detectives when it comes to finding info on your crushes and exes.

Here are 50 ways you guys defined Facebook stalking.

1.  Some call it stalking, I call it L O V E. Enough said.

2.  Brute forcing someone’s password to friend request yourself and monitor their chats.

3. “Facebook Stalking” is like rape, without actually committing a crime. You stalk your prey and watch their every move. However, they can’t know you’re doing it.

4. Sending creepy messages, viewing someones page more than once every few days, looking at EVERY pic and status update.

5. Tracking someone who won’t friend you to try and find out what they are doing. Also, scoping out your friends’ friends based on their profile pic.
