Facebook Stalking, like regular stalking, allows the stalker to secretly gather information about the person they are interested in; the stalkee if you will. Unlike regular stalking, Facebook Stalking is less likely to have an illegal component and is generally accepted by it's voyeuristic victims. The argument being, that if you didn't want others to know about your life, you wouldn't post it all over the internet.

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.

A euphemism for finding out about a person on their Facebook page so as not to need to ask for all the mundane details (hobbies, favorite quotes, marriage status) so conversations can go straight to arguing over the relative merits of Shadow of the Hegemon vs. Xenocide

Creeping 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. If someone's status is dramatic, you quickly click over to their page to see if you can find the cause. Changed relationship statuses bring you joy. Somehow a quick trip onto facebook turns into a three hour stalk fest of people that you only distantly know.
