on someone's facebook profile. Usually someone that you never speak to, only hear about and see in the hallways. Facebook stalking usually requires having set rounds, or in other words certain profiles that you like to visit each day. You read everything on the new's feed avidly.

When an individual (male or female) scours another individual's profile, frequently checks their status updates, or reads their wall posts to and from other people. This is usually done either because the individual wants to know as much as possible about the individual whose profile they are reading, or they're bored and haven't looked at that person's profile yet after they've gained them as a friend on facebook. Some people admit to it, other's deny they have been doing it, even when caught in the act.
