Must-Read: Crazy Facebook Women
Social networking is strange. Even though we’re on our, what, third big social network now with Facebook after Friendster and MySpace — not to mention the more niche social networks like Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, etc. — as a people we are still trying to figure out exactly how to use it. Where does your real life begin and where does your digital life begin? Is there even a difference between the two? These are all philosophical questions that may find answers in time, but until we get there, there’s going to be pockets of insanity going on. Like crazy women on Facebook.
The wonderful article over at AskMen.com is vital reading. It details a list of behaviors that women have been known to pull on Facebook. For example:
Women set up fake profiles to follow exes on Facebook
This one may seem a bit extreme, but it is certainly not unheard-of for a woman to set up a fake Facebook persona in order to creep on her ex’s profile. At the very least, she might get a mutual friend to allow her a little access to an ex’s Facebook page. Whether you broke up badly or it was mostly mutual, if you don’t keep in touch, she probably wants to know what you’re up to. Instead of calling or e-mailing you, it’s easier and less embarrassing to scope out your profile while you are blissfully unaware that she is checking up on you. If you want to prevent this from happening, don’t add any strangers to your friends list. If you have a friend you know is still in touch with her, keep your interactions limited.
And listen, yes. We’re sure that men have done all of these same behaviors. Jealous men are as bad as jealous women, in our experience. But this site’s readership is dominated pretty heavily by members of the penis-having population.
In any case, this brings up the question: Have any of you readers had any experiences with crazy women (exes or otherwise) using Facebook in insane ways?
