Facebook stalk

verb; compounding
To closely follow the activity of others through use of the networking site, Facebook
 
This means to stalk and surveillance the activities of a person without them knowing through the social networking website, Facebook. Although originally two separate words, through continued use, it has become slowly accepted as a singular word and are often found paired together when speaking about cyber tracking someone through Facebook. This word is similar to cyber stalk, which has been around since the widespread use of the Internet. However, instead of cyber, the word Facebook is used to specifically narrows down the location on the Internet where the stalking is taking place.
Etymology : A compound word combining ‘Facebook’ and ‘stalk.’ ‘Facebook’ comes from the name of a website. ‘Stalk’ comes from O.E. ‘stealcian’ meaning ‘pursue stealthily.’
