I too am staying away from people that post on FB. Especially the ones posting about other people. That is called stalking and most of those people are really creepy!

You might want to actually look up the definition of stalking

"Stalking is unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual or group toward another person." There it is. I didn't need to look it up. It's what I thought it was. Did it help you?

Not at all, you said "Especially the ones posting about other people". People posting about other people is not stalking.

When people are posting about the activities of other people who do not want that posted. It is unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual or group toward another person. What words there are we disagreeing on - unwanted, attention, individual, group? That definition appears to be exactly what people, who post about others, are doing anytime the person they are posting about doesn't want that to happen.

Unwanted maybe, but hardly stalking or obsessive, you might want to look that term up as well. Go ahead and try to get someone convicted of stalking because they talked about some of your activities and see how far you get.

Got news for ya', pal. "Those people" are everywhere. Even people you are very close to.
Posting on Facebook....

And I really love the term "SHEEPLE" to describe people on Facebook, Dude111.
1 Billion people couldn't actually enjoy the service??? Of course not. They just do what everyone else does.

Facebook may not be for everyone, but people that know nothing about it shouldn't judge others. That's for Rich and Dude...

The definition that I looked up, at your request, was clear. If you disagree with the definition that's your choice. When a word has meaning in the law it can still have meaning outside the law. Don't complain to me! Or try to make me look wrong when it is your *opinion* that differs from the definition of the word.

There are people *everywhere* that are addicted to illegal drugs. I'm not going to join them. Also many of the people on FB don't stalk other people.

I saw a chemtrail yesterday. I drove 800 miles to avoid it. No one on Facebook seemed to care.
