Someone who is constantly on myspace looking at the same people that they don't know over and over again to see if they have new pictures, who their friends are etc. etc.

Lurkers often lurk in packs, to show their fellow lurkers their lurkees, and to show off their taste in lurkees.
Koala is such a lurker, every night she sits in front of her laptop on myspace, lurking people she suspects may be cooler or prettier than she is.

A person who is just "there." Nobody really knows why, other than they show up and don't say a word. Possible reasons for this could be:
-They don't know what to say
-They are pretending to have friends
-They are trying to scare you
-They are there just to be seen with you, as if they have some kind of relationship with you.
Person 1: Who's that?
Person 2: The lurker. He shows up everyday, just ignore him.

Dude, how come you never comment about anything I write on my site? You're such a lurker.

A guy who hangs around your girlfriend as a "friend" who is really just waiting for the day when you and your significant other are on the rocks. That is when he swoops in to make a move, as the comforter, supporter, and basher of her current bf. Women are oblivious to them entirely.
Oh you need to talk to Matt? Jeeze that guy is such a lurker!
