Facebook: The Anti-Stalking Platform

Like many women, I’ve had my fair share of stalkers. This is especially true since I am somewhat known. The issue of stalking, as well as other public safety concerns, are the issue of this post. Herein, I will show that Facebook over Twitter is the way to go.

Social media has had it’s fair share of problems. Some of them include fake news and fake accounts.

About a year and a half ago, I received a text from Mark Zuckerburg himself. He was, to be honest, down in the dumps about all of this. What could I do? I don’t have the solution for everything. So, I simply offered what I could: “Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius. I also offered this bit of advice: “Don’t carry the weight of the world on your shoulders.”

I think those helped in, perhaps, perking him up. He later said he did, in fact, read Meditations and he appeared to enjoy it.

He probably got advice from somewhere else, but I did what I could and, hey, it’s never a bad day to read Meditations.

Now, on the the point at hand. Facebook has several features, including privacy settings, friendship closeness and proximity and hacking protections that make it, very simply, a better choice over Twitter.

On Twitter, anyone can create a fake account, anyone can follow you–and sometimes that can end up far too creepy.

I do not use Twitter anymore. You can find me on Facebook.
