"There's nothing I hate more than being on a really good Instagram stalk and stumbling across someone with a private profile - WHO DOES THAT?!"

I love being really nosey and finding out things about other people's lives - whether they're an old school friend, a celebrity, or a complete stranger.  I literally have the biggest nosey streak ever!  

I get so much enjoyment out of noseying at people's pictures and reading bits and pieces about what is going on with them.  It's one of the reasons why social media is so useful because you can keep up to date with what friends, family and former classmates are doing without having to make a huge effort to send out updates to individual people.  If I had to do that, I would probably keep in touch with nobody!  I'd either forget people, and end up sending stuff to different people every time, or I would just forget to do it altogether.

With all these different types of social media we can literally keep up to date with people's every movements.  From an Instagram post of what they had for breakfast to a Facebook status about how their day was.  People literally share everything and I love it!  

There's nothing I hate more, though, than being on a really good Instagram stalk and stumbling across someone with a private profile.  WHO DOES THAT?! 

It's like LinkedIn - when I want to stalk someone I went to university or college with, I don't want them to know that I have looked on their profile.  Imagine if Facebook or Instagram had a similar setting so you could see everyone who looks at your profile!!  I can't work out if that would be brilliant or a complete tragedy.

It would certainly stop my mammoth stalks, that's for sure.

You know the ones - you start off on a friend's profile and suddenly, before you know it, you're 60 weeks deep into someone's profile that you've never even met but feel like you have because you've stalked them so many times.  You know the names of their kids, their pets, their partner, their favourite places to eat, their daily routine... Then, when the time comes when you bump into them or chat to them, you have to act like you know none of that stuff otherwise you'll look like a complete and utter weirdo.

I'm really hoping other people can relate to this or I will look ridiculous and will probably be strapped with a social media restraining order!!

There's a eCard thing I've seen on Instagram (probably during a stalk!) which literally sums my life up to a T:


I'm sure I'm not alone with this, either.

With all that in mind, if you want to find out a bit more about me without having to stalk my social media, you may like this: a big long list of weird and wonderful things about me
