I only ever found out about the people I stalked from what they publicly posted on social media

Then I wouldn't call that stalking.

To me, the only truly clear-cut stalking is following someone around in meatspace.

On the Internet it's a fine line. Like, if you're reverse-image-searching pictures and paying a subscription to one of those background check sites, I suppose one might casually call that "stalking."

But what's definitely not stalking, is simply reading someone's Facebook and Twitter history. They put that shit up to be read.

You’re right they do put what they put up to be seen. Some people will just say someone is stalking them if that someone happens to be someone they don’t like who views their social media content. People are more likely to think the worst of someone if they don’t like someone.
