I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly being bombarded by friend requests on Facebook. Constant! At first, I indiscriminately accepted via my author profile. I wasn’t going to know anyone personally, except bloggers, so how could I judge fan or foe? Well, the messages began to come in…and boy did it get wacky. I learned quickly how to spot a creeper on Facebook.
how to spot a facebook creeper
They Have a Lot of Weird Promotion Stuff on Their Profile
They accept every friend request they get, especially from hot looking women. And spammers love using hot girl profiles to spam your timeline. Just desserts for them, that’s what they get for being a creeper and it’s also a great way to tell that they have no care about which friends to accept. You don’t want to be associated with that either, because spammers go from friend to friend to friend. Stay far away loser.
All Their Friends are Chicks…
Make sure to stalk them before you accept them. If they’re a creeper they’ll be going after chicks, mostly hot chicks. They’ll have pictures with their family on their timeline and cover photo, but there won’t be many family looking members in their friend list. Creepy Facebook guy is going to have an abundance of chick friends – which is where you want to check first. Faces like the ones below are not because he’s everybody’s fave GBF – it’s because he’s a creepy Facebook dude.
Sure – He’s a Male Model…
Oh man, check out this hottie that wants to be my friend!!!! Don’t fall for it ladies. The truth behind the profile…
They Message You With a Random Weird Comment.
Along with the friend request they also send you a bizarro message through messages, which go through filtered requests, which you might find AFTER you’ve accepted their friend request. Once you find this weird message, go find them and MAKE SURE you aren’t their friend. And if they keep persisting…well you might consider blocking.
They Go Through Your Archive
If they go through everything you’ve posted publicly and LIKE it, even the crap you posted five years ago. That should be a SURE sign that they are a creeper. And think about it, that crazy creeper just looked through all of your facebook posts that you posted publicly. Even those ones that you accidentally posted publicly. Like maybe your kids picture.
They Request Information From You
Yeah – don’t share that stuff with them. That is just weird, weird, weird. Why does this even exist on Facebook??
They Poke you….
Again – WTF is the Facebook poke?? Why does it exist but to encourage weird creepers to pretend like they are physically interacting with you.
