What is cyberstalking?

Cyberstalking can be done through email or social media.

By Vinod

Cyberstalking is using electronic means to harass, monitor or threaten another person or group.

It can include direct contact through emails or social media or covertly or overtly collecting information on a person.

For example, users of Facebook who surreptitiously collect the photos of other users would fall under the cyberstalker category.

Cyberstalking may be one part of wider stalking activity, including physically stalking somebody.
