How to be Shady – Tip #3

(This is related to Tip #2. Actually, there will probably be a few more MySpace-related tips in the future).

If you’re going to lurk someone’s MySpace profile, don’t just go on their full profile constantly. If they are as sneaky as you, they could have a tracker!

What you can do to still keep tabs on this person is to go on their page, find out what their MySpace user ID number is and write it down for future use. This is an example of a user ID number:

If you go on the profile by typing in the person’s unique username (such as:, this will not show up in the address bar. What you will need to do is click on another section of their profile, such as the Pictures section. This will then reveal the user ID number in the address bar.

Now when you want to view a certain section of someone’s profile, do this: Go to your own profile, click the link of the section you want to view (such as pictures, comments, or view all friends). Replace your user ID number with the person you are lurking.

You’ll still want to go on that person’s page from time to time to view full profile updates, such as relationship status or whatever. But at least you can minimize the amount of times you show up on their tracker!
