Facebook-stalking does not mean you like someone.

...Right?

Vapid.

I went through a Facebook-stalking phase but it was more about gathering annoying info on people I didn't like, so I don't think it directly translates to a crush or anything. Boredom and irrational hatred, maybe, but not a crush.

please, Richard. It sounds like they are having fun.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
