    It depends on your motive on why you're checking out their profile.

    Not really. As long as you're only looking and not constantly going to the same person's link.

    If you do it once, it's just "checking out". If you were paid to do it, it's called "character investigation". If it's to help you analyze his character, just one time, then say it's "research". However, if you do it in all social sites habitually day in and day out, trying to learn everything about him through the internet without really speaking to him face-to-face then that's stalking!

    No is the short answer if that is all you do.

    It's called cyber stalking, but we've all done it. Never had a crush?

    No, it sure isn't. People do it all the time.

    No, there’s a reason you can just look up someone on those sites.

    It can be part of stalking, but that alone isn’t stalking
