Wanna find out anything about that person you just met at the gym or that new coworker that just started? Easy as first name, last name and the internet. Sometimes if you are lucky you don’t even need a last name just a mutual connection you can make.
1. Start on Facebook
These days Facebook is the goto for finding someone you might now or wanna know. It’s like a virtual yearbook. You can find that photo of the cute guy two grades older than you and enroll in all of his classes next year. No not really, but if you wanna be that creepy you can totally do that.
2. Find Your Mutual Connection
If you met the person at work, start on LinkedIn. If you met them at the gym go to the gym’s Facebook page, if you don’t know anything at all about them good luck you need a better stalker how-to-guide than this stupid blog.
3. Don’t Add The Person
Whatever you do, don’t add the person or like a photo of them from three years ago, that’s creepy. As long as you don’t break any of these rules social stalking is totally acceptable. Also do not offer any information about the person that they haven’t told you IN PERSON. It’s super weird to bring up their trip to peru from last year or the girlfriend they dated two years ago, just don’t do it.
4. Never Admit to Your Social Ninja Stalker Ways
It’s ok that you know they have 4 dogs and are really into deep sea diving, just don’t tell anyone. Welcome to the world of social media, where you can know everything about anyone without even knowing their last name. Makes you wanna put everything an private right? Don’t worry the 15 pictures of your dog and photos of food you posted are safe with me.
