Facebook stalkers be warned as your stalking habits could now get you caught.
For the many users that take pleasure in checking out people’s Facebook pages in the comforting knowledge that no one can see what you’re doing – well look out as that is about to change.
Checking out how that annoying friend from school is doing, what your ex partner is up to or just being plain nosy seems to be a common activity these days.
So the above headline, suggesting that might all be exposed, is likely to strike fear into the hearts of Facebook stalkers everywhere.
That’s because of a Facebook feature called stories. Stories actually launched earlier this year, but only in selected countries.
As you many know both Instagram and Snapchat already have the stories feature and if you have used these before then you’ll know what is about to happen.
The stories can tell not only exactly how many people have viewed your videos or seen your images but you can actually see who has been looking at it.
Hence creepers could be about to get caught out.
The feature basically allows users to share updates and form a story that lasts for 24 hours before disappearing entirely – unlike a normal status that remains there forever. It also lists who has viewed the story and how many people have looked at it.
This is a huge change for Facebook … so stalkers be warned.
