Stalking in a harassing manner
Many people think that only celebrities are stalked. However, every other person can fall victim to stalking in a harassing manner. Stalking is constant and unwanted attention that has a harassing and intimidating effect on you. Stalking in a harassing manner starts with as little as two instances of stalking and is often accompanied by a fear of violence. This kind of harassment is especially frightening because it can last for a long time and make you feel constantly afraid or anxious. People do not just stalk each other in real life (on the street, at work, etc.), but also on social media, for example, by threatening or intimidating you. In this case, it constitutes cyberbullying.
