Lately facebook has been creeping me out . . .
although it may seem like a fun place to catch up and keep in touch with friends, and . . . I often use it for publicity on current events.
There are a lot of weird things that go on, that I don't normally think about . . . or even pay attention to.
Here are just a couple to name a few . . .
Someone who uses facebook but is looking at other peoples profiles, going through their pix, reading their messages. It's a little like stalking.
People who take advantage of the new facebook layout to try and be part of other people's lives, a.k.a, read wall-to-walls, look at pictures, and comment on everything.
Someone who looks at people's pictures and wall posts even if they have never talked to them before in their life.
Someone who is obsessed with someone else and stalks them on facebook. Not always traceable or noticeable, but clues are: wall posts replying to every status update, viewing every posted picture of the stalked, etc...
A person who spends large amounts of time on facebook looking at other people's profiles. often browsing photos, walls (or wall-to-walls), groups, or recent activity posted on the stalked person's mini-feed.
An individual who secretly looks up people on facebook, going through albums, comments and personal information to piece together a picture of this person. Potentially developing into an obsession.
Above definitions from: Urban Dictionary
Makes you think twice about being on facebook, but this is why you have the capability of blocking certain people from your wall and info.
I think I may look into this a little further, personally I don't accept people as 'friends' unless I know them. laff.. makes sense.
Unless I guess if you wanted to get to know them. But thats where it might start being a little creepy.
AND . . . Recently . . . I heard someone only joined facebook . . . so they could look at my wall!!! OMG!!!
On the UP-side,
I have some friends who really make my day or crack me up with their comments . . . that is priceless!!
There is literally hundreds of stereotype definitions HERE
