Everybody knows the FB ritual. Friending, following and liking people you don’t know very well or do not know at all. Mark Zuckerberg somehow predicted this twitterish human need to be in almost constant contact and profited immensely beyond description.

Again, read the account below for what would actually happen if you interacted in real life like folks on FB do. This lady after a few socially awkward eavesdropping thumbs up was being followed by police officers and a PI.
