Who is spying on you on the Internet? Stalkers under the microscopehttp://grahamcluley.com/2013/09/spying-internet-stalkers-microscope-video/
A relationship doesn’t have to be long-standing to lead to stalking.
Clare Bernal, for instance, was shot dead by her former boyfriend at the Harvey Nichols store in Knightsbrige, London, in September 2005. Her former boyfriend began stalking her after their three-week relationship had ended.
The sad truth is that one in every five women will be stalked during their lifetime. In the case of men, although not so high, a staggering 10% will be the victims of stalkers.
These are just a couple of the facts that came out of an illuminating talk given last month by Jennifer Perry at the Campus Party Europe event in London.
Perry’s talk focused on how the internet can be used by stalkers, and how the risks have increased because of new technology.
Perry says that staying in contact with an ex-partner via a social network like Facebook means that it can take longer to get over a relationship, and make it more likely that people’s resentment and feelings of anger and revenge will fester, and could lead to stalking. (Continued on link)
