Creepy Facebook Stalkers

Further to my post about social media stalkers, I note that there are stalkers on this site. A member actually looked up another user's Facebook account and obtained details this user and thought it was appropriate to share these details in the public domain. Such behaviour is not acceptable. Most of us would not dream of doing such a thing let alone publishing personal data on this site. Also, it is against the rules. Do you feel this is a horrible thing to do? The weather in the UK is glorious now so I won't be online much longer. I want to enjoy the weather. Photo is of a baby Robin which was messaged to me by my daughter yesterday. He looks a real mean critter!

People need to cut down or be wary of what they post on FB. Take responsibility.

True John but supposing I did a search for John Roberts and found you there is no way I would publicise anything I discovered on here. It's against the rules and goes beyond common decency. I can't imagine why anyone would waste time like that. I did once look for a person who sold artwork as she was dodgy but that was the extent of my detective work. It's just so silly.

@Gillygirl I am not on FB so no worry there. But for those on FB, don't post every facet of your life. Keep your private life private.

@JohnRoberts Amen! I am on FB but careful about what I post. Even if it’s friends only, I post nothing I wouldn’t want the whole world to see.

@Gillygirl She should go back and delete the comment with that personal information in it now, so that nobody else sees it.

I am wondering how he/she got hold of your fb profile? I do not know but I never share my FB account in here because I know it is quite dangerous to do so.

I am not talking about my profile. I do not have my real name on here and nor would I. However those mylotters who do choose to put their real name on here have a right NOT to have any personal details disclosed in a public discussion area where ANYBODY in the world can access these details.

@Gillygirl oh ok that’s a risk if they would use their real name in here. The site is quite transparent and vulnerable to it I guess. So far no one has tried to go beyond my account in here and most of my acquaintances here i have no knowledge about their real selves and I usually do not bother about it except if they will post it here.

I had three years away from Facebook but recently started back with it. It is okay if used properly. I have deleted many things and changed my history. I like being back in touch with people I have met whilst travelling.

Yep Facebook posts can be used by private investigators, Insurance fraud squads, police etc. In the UK if someone commits a crime Facebook info is used in the media.

It occurs to me that, if a person is able to see 'personal' information on a Facebook page, then it's just as open to all the world as it is posted on here. Even so, it is quite wrong (and also against the rules here) to reproduce that information elsewhere without the person's specific permission. What information was shared and in what manner and with what intent would be the main things which would determine whether it were 'horrible' or not. Did you report the post? It would be a good idea to do so, if not, so that Admin can decide what should be done.

Many of us have reported it. The details included a lady's husbands name, the lady's profession and the location of the place where she works. Yes, these details can be accessed by anybody who wishes to find someone. However not to be used in a disparaging manner which did happen in this case. Quite nauseating that this could happen here.

@Gillygirl Obviously I haven't seen the posts in question but the name of a person's spouse is not confidential personal information, in fact it is intended to be public knowledge (that's why the banns are read before a wedding). And I guess if the person in question wanted to keep her profession a secret she should not post it on FB, that's just like writing it on a giant worldwide billboard as far as I can see!

He has the 'How dare you post my details to the public' look about him. I agree. People shouldn't go to another media site and post information about another user with or without their permission.

There are never enough filter systems on social media sites to not allow this stealing of info to occur, that is social media platform owners problems they wish not to address until it happens to them. It was a very bad thing to do and the person who did will inevitably never understand what is coming to them, why it happened either . . .

That is true Erica. Most social media sites turn a blind eye. In this instance any details that were disclosed on this site were removed this afternoon and the culprit dealt with.

I think Facebook is something that is a public domain and very social, people can do whatever they like, and the only way to deal with this is not to put any information on social medias that is way too personal

I find it very hard to understand why anyone would do that. I know it happened, I saw the discussion, but I find it hard to understand why the person found it okay. I would never look for information outside myLot, and I definitely wouldn't post the information in a comment.

Thanks! My daughter made me laugh last night. There is a nest behind her shed and she watched the Mummy and babies flying around. A cat went for one of the babas. She has stationed herself on birdwatch. She also sent a video where she is telling the mother not to leave one of the babies out.
