Do you stalk friends on social sites (in a good way)?

It's sad when people delete their profiles. You get used to stalking them and suddenly they're gone. Your top friend's list is all messed up. Your favorite blogs, pictures and music, no longer there. Seriously, I had a number of friends over on Yuwie, also Multiply, who deleted their accounts. I used to hang out on their profiles to listen to the music. Or I'd go back and re-read a great blog. Or revisit some of their pictures. Poof. Gone. Do you stalk people like that here or on other sites? For what reasons?

I don't think I will delete my account on any social networking site but I have so many accounts on these sites that I forgot to login on many. Currently I am at Facebook, orkut, Hi5, tagged and many more sites! Let's see if I can continue on these sites!

Stalk ? Or just see it the normal way ? In my opinion, 'stalk' is something like spy. =) And if you describe 'stalk' as what you wrote above, then I do the 'stalk' almost every day. I take a look on my friend's photoblogs, or social website'a acccount and anything to keep us in touch. Sometimes I'd spend my (lot of) time to see their photos or even their videos. =) I also feel sad if one of my friend's account is deleted by the owner. But, maybe they want to keep everything underground (or private).

No bad stalking here
11 Sep 09
Yeah, yeah, no bad stalking! =) But it's still, isn't it? Sometimes we do that even if we already know that bad stalking is not good, it's about another's privacy.

Well yeah but if you put stuff out on the internet and invite friends to see it, that isn't really privacy, is it?

"Yuwie" "Multiply" what are these places? I don't stalk as such. I do follow closely though sometimes. But then I can't be bothered or have to cut my nails and..................

One of my friends signed up over there and got a bunch of suggestions for people to add. One of them was a Yuwie person that he really doesn't like very much. But you don't have to accept either...

Sometimes I do that on Yuwie when I'm working on something else, I'll go to a site that has good music so I can listen to it while I'm working.

lol good one! The fun has gone out of Yuwie. I've been very standoffish about it for a couple of weeks now. Two of my very best friends deleted their accounts there and that just totally took the wind out of my sails. Not that I have a problem with their reasons, but I will miss having them there. But the good news is, they're here. lol

Heck yeah, all the time! LOL Shoot, I even stalk you from time to time. In all seriousness, I have done this with some of my old friends and acquaintances. I like to check on them to see what they're up to and to sometimes to say hello. It's like having a reunion without actually having to meet up. LOL Because chances are I'll never see them again in person. Happy mylotting!

Was that you at the grocery store yesterday? Yeah I follow people around sometimes, if they're interesting, if they've shown interest in me, if I notice they're among the missing I go check it out, etc.

WoW, you are on Multiply too.. I have an account there but it's been super ages that I've logged on, must make it a point to visit the site sometime. Reason that I stayed away is the same as you. I used to love interacting there, and suddenly they are no longer blogging, moving on to other sites permanently, deleting their account because of online wars and all those things. And friends made along the way; totally changed just like that. Sad.. I get what you mean. I do stalk friends on that site before and it was fun because they would make blog posts and we would comment on each other respective blog posts.

I actually do that especially with people I like or am interested with because i get to know them better. I get to read on their thoughts through their blogs or listen to the music they like. You actually get to have an idea of what type that person is just by looking at their profiles. Also, I like comparing my profile themes with other people's themes so i love sneaking around spotting some cool designs.

Yes I do stalk friends on social sites. I guess I tend tocomment stalk more than anything. I read a friends comment. Than have to go read what they commented on. I have found many great photo, blogs and posts that way. Also made new friends.

I had a lot of fun checking out people's blogs and photos and so on. I'm temporarily disenchanted with the whole thing (especially on Yuwie) though.

Some very good bloggers on yuwie had private profiles. I very seldom requested friendships, so I accessed their blogs from friends' profiles. I couldn't comment on them but I enjoyed reading them. I accessed a few from your profile. Same thing here, I suppose. I admire several people who comment on your discussions, so I access their discussions from yours. If that is stalking, I am guilty.
