Facebook Fail Friday: Busted Facebook StalkerPieter posted in "Humor". 6 years, 9 months ago
Every Friday we post a Facebook Fail and today’s mishap is one that could easily happen to you, if you’re stalking an ex or a secret crush on Facebook. So be warned!
This is what happened to GeekSugar recently, while she was stalking an ex boyfriend on Facebook…
So every now and then I’ll type his name into the search box at the top of the Facebook home screen. Such was the case earlier this week when I typed his name, hit return, and waited for search results. (…) I was waiting for search results, except there were no search results because I typed his name into the “update” field, not the search bar.
I deleted it as quickly as possible, but was already busted by a friend. Now I’m praying that none of our mutual friends were logged into Facebook during my 10-second gaffe. Stalkers take note: make sure you’re typing into the search bar!
So pay attention: the status update box is NOT the search field. GeekSugar’s advise: “Stalk carefully!” Or rather, don’t stalk at all.
