Explaining stalking

Well, what is stalking? I think when we think about stalking we may think of that T-Mobile ad where we saw the girl sitting up in the tree texting away to the boyfriend that she had. But stalking isn't always someone just hanging outside of your house. Stalking can be someone shows up at your class when it lets out. Maybe you have an event or something that you're doing with a friend and all of a sudden, they're there. Stalking can be someone maybe at your house but it can also be that they're constantly checking in and seeing where you are or they're posting information about you on your Facebook page – maybe going through your Facebook page and seeing like where you are or going through your friends' pages and seeing is there any new photo of you. Is there any new information about you? Maybe it's constantly contacting you on your chat or texting you. Mostly stalking is one of those things where someone is constantly showing up or constantly invading your privacy for no reason at all.
