Social Media Is Fostering A Big Rise In Real-World Stalking

Needless to say, many unreported cases like these are likely to have occurred. In the UK, for instance, reported cases of stalking trebled in the four years from 2014 to 2018, rising from 2,882 cases to 10,214. It’s very likely that the existence and pervasiveness of social media has played a significant role in this increase, making it very tempting to conclude that we should all delete our social media accounts in order to guarantee complete safety from digital stalking.

That said, while this author would certainly welcome liberation from the pressures and obligations of social media, those who believe that they genuinely need to be online should at the very least think twice before they post on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Because if we don’t routinely stop to think before publicizing our own movements, we may find that we end up letting one too many people into our lives.
