9 things all dedicated social media creepers know to be true

Deep creeping is a way of life.

DEEP CREEPING IS so therapeutic. Everyone does it… don’t they?

1. You constantly have to stop yourself from admitting too much

What you want to say:

Oh heya, haven’t seen you in literal years. How’s the new baby? The new gaff? You split up from Adam didn’t you? Thought you were going to Portugal this week?

What you really say:

Oh hey, long time no see. How’s life?


2. Sometimes you’re genuinely concerned about the amount of expertise you have in online stalking

You suspected that girl you went to playschool with was doing well. Better find her Facebook history, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram to really confirm it.

EASY. Now, if only you could apply this skill to your every day life.


3. People having their profile on private is merely a temporary obstacle

You can run, you can hide, but we will access your business.

4. You’ve gone back so far on someone’s profile you’ve genuinely started to feel like you know them

You don’t. They’re your mate’s ex’s cousin’s husband but they look like great craic. Thank God for timeline.

5. Accidentally liking a really old Instagram or Facebook photo is acceptable grounds to tip yourself out the window

You’ve definitely done this at some stage.


Oh, just tagged yourself in your ex’s new girlfriend’s group photo at Electric Picnic 2009? You had a good run.

6. You’ve chatted about events you saw on Facebook like you were actually there

Yeah did you see Kayleigh got married. Down in Tipp, Jess and Siobhan were there.
Oh did you go?

7. Your Facebook search history is a mess of randos you briefly met or heard of

Your secret shame.

You delete it out of habit about twice a week. Oh, nothing to see here. Nothing at all.

8. You’ve sent too many accidental friend requests to count



9. When Twitter moved the update box, all hell broke loose

It’s TOO close to the search box, dammit.
