Privacy is one of the most important things for us humans. But at the same time, social media made it so easy to stalk a person and know almost every basic information that person. Therefore, stalking has become easy. You can easily get the information about the birth date, sometimes address or hometown name likes and dislikes and even photos from social media platforms. No matter how private settings you keep, one can still find things about you. Isn’t that creepy? It is but sometimes it helps to provide the information in case of missing person an accident scenario.
Whatever be your reason to stalk, we are providing 10 ways to stalk someone.
10.Track them down
It is hard to believe that many people are not aware of the Facebook feature which helps us to track people down. If you apply the filter on working and provide the specific name of the company and mix another filter like the college that person went to or the hometown he belongs to, it is highly possible that Facebook will shortlist 2-3 people and sometimes directly the person you are looking for. Sometimes, using one filter is enough too. How crazy is that?
9. Use Google
Obviously, the easiest way to find anything under the sun is Google. If you know the name of the person, just enter the name and you will get all the possible information that is linked with Google. Sometimes, you may get email Id or the places that person have been to. If the online presence of that person is higher, then it is like hitting the bull’s eye. Google can help you find if the person is active on any digital platform like a blog, YouTube channel and related stuff. It also shows the social media accounts linked with the name. In the images section, some photos which are used as a profile picture of the social media accounts of that person can also be found.
8. Have a phone number? Great!
This is quite difficult to get the number of a person who you don’t know. But if that happens by some means then just type the phone in Google. You may get some information about that person if his phone number is linked with his social media accounts. There are few reverse call search websites which track the person but that might be illegal to use. Also, the app Truecaller can be used to find out the name of the person and then use Google once you know it. The app also shows location sometimes, but that location is usually wrong.
7. Search the pages liked by that person
This is useful when you are going on the date with someone. Before going, you must know the likes and dislikes of that person. Just search the pages like by that person and get to know what they are about. For example, if most of them are of sarcasm and puns then you know what you have to do and how you have to turn your conversation interesting.
6. Zoom it, stalk them!
When you stalk someone on Instagram and the person has a private account, you can zoom the profile picture of that person. But there are many tools and tricks available to zoom that picture. Search the Instagram page on your PC and right click on the profile picture. Then, click on “Open in the new tab” option. The new tab will open, and you will be able to see the picture. You can zoom in using the mouse.
5. What friends are for?
A friend in need is a friend indeed. This statement holds good everywhere and so in the case when you stalk someone. If your friend follows that person and you don’t because the person is not accepting your request, use your friend’s phone. Of course, not without asking your friend. At least keep that much of gallantry. In the case of crush and liking, you can ask your friend to arrange the meetup of you and that person to improve your stalking efficiency further. While stalking on Instagram and Facebook, do not accidentally like the post which is posted long back. That may give stalking alerts to that person.
4. Dating sites will help you
Dating sites are matchmakers of today’s generation. If you know a person’s name, you can surf on dating sites and see if that person is there or not. Try to get in touch with the person whatever the procedure you need to follow on different dating sites. If you both get matched, then you can start the conversation and get to know things about the person.
3. Why leave Twitter?
Many people keep their Twitter profile public as it can be used for raising an opinion rather than just posting pictures only. If you track the person down on Twitter, see what that person usually talks about? What disinterest that person more? What he retweets and at what time he is active? , then you will get to know the opinions about things of that person.
2. Appear engaged when stalking outdoors
Never let a person know that you are stalking him. That will push you into an embarrassment or maybe into the jail. Always appear engaged so that nobody would blame you. Do not look straight towards the person. Always keep the safe distance to avoid doubts and hints. Cover yourself casually and do not overdress or be under unusual covers because that may make the person alert.
1.React correctly when caught
Getting caught for the stalking may be dangerous because that can put you behind the bars if matter takes the serious route. You must have the prepared explanation for what you were doing. If you know the person or the person is your friend, then explain the whole thing properly to him/her. It will be difficult for that person to trust your explanation but make each word count because you failed to make your stalking skill count.
Stalking someone is not easy, and not advisable too. But if the situation demands, you can use the above-mentioned methods. Some of them are super-easy as they can be employed on your phone or PC but stalking someone outdoors is quite risky. That may mark you as a creep if caught. So, watch your every step and make it count.
Though how to stalk someone is highly searched question on the web and many tricks are available too, it is not like a piece of cake. Be careful of what you do. Stalking someone for fun or interest is another thing but never let your feet turn towards the dark world of crime out of stalking.
