Hello, my name is Ariana and I am a Facebook stalker. My confession isn’t one of shame or embarrassment, but one that likely half of Facebook users could make.
Facebook is basically an open vault of information and a web of relationships and acquaintances. It allows its users to see a friend’s friend’s pictures, to find out their interests, where they live, what school they go to and how old they are. Unless someone’s profile is locked or private, this website opens up a whole new way to approach stalking…and I’m taking advantage of it!
The most common group of people I stalk on Facebook is that of attractive boys. I’ll admit it, I’ll see a cute guy in class and I will look him up on Facebook to find out more about him (or just look at his pictures). Admit it girls, you have all done it! Looking at their profile can also actually help you to converse with the guy in real life: once you know his interests, you can casually bring them up and voila! You instantly (and coincidentally, of course) have things in common!
My second most chosen of stalkees are people who I think have really amazing senses of fashion. I love to look at their photos, draw from their styles, and become inspired for my own wardrobe choices!
Although this confession of mine may seem creepy and weird I can honestly say that almost every girl and guy I know Facebook stalk as well. It is natural to want to know more about people and just plain interesting and entertaining!
