Are you still in love with your ex? Things ended badly and you can’t get any news of his life? Or that ex-friend you’d like to get to know better without it being obvious? Most of us have probably been there, and none of us want people to know that we want to know more about them. Although it is officially called harassment, we all want to know more about this person; it’s not that great, and even if it’s great, don’t you like watching other people’s lives?

For most people, especially Gen Zers and Millennials, Facebook was their coming-of-age app and held all of their precious memories of youth. This information is still there, and it can be used. Facebook is therefore the perfect place to get rare information about people.

Quick Answer: Start by finding them by name or phone number; then you can check their recent photos, stories, activities and interests. If you don’t see any and they’re not in your friends list, you can add them. You need to be subtle when applying all of these skills and not comment or like their old posts.

How to Stalk on Facebook

This article highlights the specific things you need to know if you are being stalked on Facebook and what you should do if you want to stalk someone. Let’s get into the thick of it.

Step 1: Enter their numbers

If you have the contact details of the person you would like to track, you are one step closer to obtaining the information you are looking for.

Search her from her phone number, and if this number is linked to her Facebook account, her Facebook profile will appear. You can find out who their mutual friends are, their birthdays, and even their relationship or educational background.

Unfortunately, if their phone number is not linked to their Facebook account, you have to take an extra step.

Step 2: Name Luck

Sometimes you have the phone number of the person you want to track, but that number is not linked to their account, so nothing shows up; that’s where their name comes in. Look up their name or nickname. Facebook displays a list of searches that match the names. You can click on each of these profiles to see which matches your interest.

Step 3: The chance of recent photos

Now that you have found the profile that matches your interest, it is possible that he only has a few photos on his profile, that most of the photos are old or that his profile does not provide information. That’s where this step comes in.

In the search bar, type “recent photos from” and add the person’s Facebook name. Facebook will show that person’s photos and you might even be able to see what they were up to in 2011.

Enter ‘photos of’ and add their name to see photos they’ve posted. To see the photos they’re tagged in, type in “photos of” and add their names.

Step 4: The Activity Search

If you want to take your harassment to the next level, you can search for posts they like. This will show you the posts they’ve liked over time, and you can find out their likes and interests. They might even leave comments on these posts, and you can tell what they think by some of the comments they leave on the posts.

Step 5: Subtle harassment

The main reason you harass without expressly expressing your interest is that you don’t want the other person to know that you are harassing them. That’s why you have to be subtle. Don’t leave comments on their pages, especially if they don’t interact with you much.

Also, do not follow many of their friends. You might find that you’re stalking them, and since you don’t want to be labeled as a stalker, limit your interactions. And of course, don’t like all their old posts! They will notice and mark you as a stalker.

It is essential that you know that you do not have to always search a person’s profile on Facebook before harassing them. Once you’ve sent her a friend request, and she’s been accepted, you can find out more about her from her shared stories and posts.

People usually post life updates on the 24-hour limited story feature. Unlike profile posts, story feature posts disappear after 24 hours. So we tend to share more about this temporary space.

With this sense of security, snippets of our life are presented, which can help you learn more about the daily activities of a specific person.

At this point, it is essential to give you specific tips that can help you find out if you are being harassed on Facebook. If you notice strangers liking your old photos, an account constantly viewing your stories, or your account has been hacked, someone may be stalking you.


Stalking people is considered scary in society, and if you do it, it should not be done excessively to avoid a compulsive obsession with stalking people. You might end up stalking more people than expected.

Also, the more you stalk people, the more annoying things you come across that could mess with your sanity. Still, stalk if you wish, but don’t cross borders and avoid stalking everyone.
