Are you a cyberstalker?

Cyberstalking Infographic

Sure this image is to do with personal matters but I think it also applies to the handmade industry. Many people in this industry at some time or the another have checked out the competition.  What I don't think is okay when it becomes obsessive, when you HAVE to look at their page each day or when you simply MUST comment on or Like every image posted.  

I have seen first hand some truly awful behaviour on Facebook - mainly to do with perceived copy cats.  I have also read some down right nasty comments and I have marveled at the downright rudeness of some.

My rule of thumb is

"If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all".  

If a post or images makes you feel jealous, sad or angry simply unlike the business page.  You don't have to look at it ever again.  

If you have a business page on Facebook and you find someone being negative on your page or you feel they are trying to provoke you to stir up a trouble - simply BLOCK and DELETE.  Don't waste another minute on these people.
