Facebook stalking

Facebook stalk

To attempt to learn more about a person (typically someone whom one does not know very well) by looking at their Facebook profile, posts, photos, etc. I Facebook stalked Josh yesterday and saw no signs of a girlfriend, so, you're welcome. Ugh, Facebook stalking people I went to high school with is just depressing anymore. They all have kids and houses and intense careers, and here I am, living at home.
