This is the opposite of funny.

We are all guilty of Facebook stalking. All of us! And I’m going to tell you that I think that’s perfectly okay. Isn’t that what Facebook is for? The hard part about Facebook stalking is that you can never let people know that you do it or else you will be known as a creep (even though the people calling you a creep Facebook stalk as much as you do, if not more).
If you took our 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.
It's summer. There's a bonfire. You look fabulous in your bikini. You've had a drink (or two... or three...). And that guy is hot. And you just want him to notice you and become your cabana boy for the next three months. It happens. But there is a very thin line between flirty and creepy.
Introducing Foursquare for Facebook, called Facebook Places, that takes everyone's favorite stalker application to the next level. Not only will your friends, frenemy's, second cousins, and co-workers be able to check into locations, but they'll also be able to check you into locations. Apparently they're claiming that it's just like tagging someone in a photo because it has a detag option.
Facebook can turn even the most confident girl into a crazy stalker. Whether it's clicking rapidly through photo albums and tagged pictures or checking out every. single. girl. who posts on your random hook-up's wall, we've all been there. And that's OK. It's not like we're sitting in a windowless van outside someone's house for hours, watching their every move.
We’ve all done it. We claim that we are the best of friends, but the truth is that we are all guilty. We sit and listen to our friends complain about their breakups, lend a shoulder to cry on, and then offer consoling words: “You can do so much better” or “he’s the one missing out, not you.” The sob-fest concludes and what do we do?
A few weeks ago I was set up with a boy. We chatted for a bit, made some small talk. He was sarcastically funny and he was tall, and in my book, those two things will warrant a first date. (Let’s face it - Jewish boys are usually not tall, and even less so if you buzz down that J- fro.)

You've done some crazy things in your love lifetime: Sleeping with your cell phone near your head as you wait for that boy to call. Googling him to find out his interests...and then getting interested in professional hot dog eating yourself. Eating only half of your burger when you could have eaten the whole thing and the fries so he didn't think you were a heffer.
I’d like to consider myself a fairly sane person. I wear clothing, avoid drama, and know nothing about voo doo. I don’t have a secret alias, or an imaginary friend, or a meth problem. No skeletons in my closet, just a bulging IKEA shoe rack and a gallon-sized refill of Febreze. Decidedly not crazy.
Today is Facebook’s 5th birthday. Can you believe it? Five years? We’ve been stalking our friends (and friends of friends...
