Friday dilemma: What’s a Facebook stalker to do?
Anonymous says: “I started doing it at night when everyone else was in bed. Then sometimes on the train, while I’m on my way to work. I’ve even done it at parties, or at the pub. Everyone just used to think I was busy checking work emails. But I wasn’t.
The truth is I’m a Facebook stalker from waaay back. And now, thanks to these pesky new changes, I’m going to have to fess up or give up before everyone catches on. Unless, they already have.
Oh, god! Thanks very much Facebook, they’re hardly improvements you know.
Has the hide function has disappeared? Will all my friends know that I looked at Susie from high school’s wedding photos. Not to mention Steve, my ex. Actually my very first ex, will know I look at his status updates. Someone just told me you can work around that. But can you? What if I screw it up? It would be just my luck to think I had it sorted out when really, all I’d done was reveal my own pathetic obsession with the past.
Then there’s the time wastage factor. The sheer amount of information that’s now flickering on my newsfeed will keep me glued to my computer at work. Or my mobile when I’m out on the street.
Goodbye clandestine joys of Facebook! My reputation will be on the line as soon as anyone bothers to check my news scroll. What should I do?”
