Just that really. Should I be snooping and stalking?

I do it all the time wink

Isn't that the whole point of Facebook grin

One of my favourite pastimes and I have only been on Facebook since moving abroad

It seems I know more about people I do t know than those I do hmm

A look very now and then at random acquaintances fine.
Repeated checking of exes/enemies not so good from your mental health point of view. If you have a need to find info on someone secretly you are giving them way too much head space. Move on.

Oh absolutely, i love a good stalk.

Oh I bloody love a good stalk-it's like hitting the jackpot when you find someone you want to stalk AND they have barely any privacy controls on there. Hours of fun!

I have a thorough stalk of anyone I may be about to become acquainted with. Helps you make sure they are what they say they are LOL

It is perfectly normal!
I have a separate account for it too.

Please set up a separate account for snooping. Accidents happen and Likes and friend requests get sent. wink

Oh my god. A separate account? I'd never even thought that you could do this......archers

I've just started doing it (very late starter), just looking up old friends and acquaintances, it's great fun.

I do worry that people will know I've been snooping, but not enough to put me off doing it.

They may well get a people you know suggestion which if your number isn't in their phone,generally suggests a bit of stalking.

I love it. Can spend a whole day delving into someone's life that I don't even know ha ha

Seperate account all the way

Secretmetalfan Tue 06-Sep-16 20:06:24

Ooh I'm going to set up a separate account now

It depends. I think if you are stalking ex's or their new partners that it's best if you don't- block them if you don't trust yourself because you aren't going to read anything that will cheer you up. If it's someone you fancy, an old school mate/enemy or just someone else's friend who looks like they have an interesting life then go ahead.
