Are there online stalkers on Facebook?
There aren't. Because your profile information can be hidden except to your friends.
I would have to disagree with this answer... there are always opportunities to be stalked, i was stalked by one of my ex girlfriends, she made a profile with a person name i knew, and i added her, and then she was able to look at my profile and harass my current girlfriend, so pretty much, if you dont add people you dont know, then you cant be stalked!
This is debatable. Stalkers often use search engines to stalk, and Google is probably the most popular search engine. However, stalkers would also use sites with more local scope such as Craig's List (to hook up with actual victims), Facebook (many users put their personal details there and thus helping stalkers), or even a message board site like Topix (sometimes used for harassment and cyberbullying).
I am guessing there are many stalkers on Facebook. But as long as you prevent this you shouldn't be worried. Try not putting personal information like your mobile, home phone, address and email address on there or make it so only some friends can see it. You should also make your photo albums private and not take revealing photos. Try not adding people you don't know aswell. Be safe!
Facebook was originally a college only website, the whole idea of facebook is to communicate with people you know in your current network(s). Facebook does this to minimize "the badd stuff" that can happen on myspace. Stalkers and such finding you. Also, to find people simply search for a netwrok they would be in, school they go to, city they live in.. etc..
They stalk your online social website profile(ex. Facebook, MySpace, etc.) and collect information about you. Such as, your address, where you go to school, your cellphone number, when you're home alone etc. They may never contact you personally. Although some do talk to their victims and that is how they collect the majority of their information. They may ask to meet in person so that they can do as they please.
Why don't some of my friends who I know are online on Facebook not show up on the Friends online box?
Yeah you can just block Facebook stalkers and then they wont b able to look at your picture wall or like if you like something on someones page and they has that person what you liked they wont be able to see that you liked it or you cant get any messages of them if you just block them quick , easily, no hassle
