Stalkers are people who create a profile online in order to keep apprised with what is going on with friends and family without actually participating in Social Media. Each have their own reasons for not getting involved. Being a Stalker is a step towards cybermissions.
It’s good because the person cares about the people he chooses as friends. It’s bad because their friends won’t know whether the stalker cares about them or not, especially if the friend is not a family member.
Cybermissions is relational. It’s more than liking or loving something. It’s like real life. It’s getting involved in that person’s life. It’s showing through action that they care.
So here are ways a stalker can compromise without much impact on their personal life:
- Leave a comment. Comments are gifts you give, so make it good.
- Let them known in the comments you are praying for them.
- An hour a week interacting is good enough. It’s not quantity, but quality of using social media.
- Be available and flexible.
- Meet one of them each month in real life for coffee, lunch, or a hike.
We love our stalkers, but they can accidentally get deleted from our friend’s list because they look like a neglected account.
