I’ve even got a fake profile for spying on people. Six years ago, my boyfriend left me for another woman. That’s when I became an Instagram ‘stalker’. I wanted to understand what she was like and why my boyfriend had left me for her. Was she a 6ft blonde who practised Tai Chi every day, while 5ft me sat at home watching Netflix? Did she cook amazing dinners while I was ordering take aways? At first I tried not to look at her social media profiles as I knew it would just upset me, but in the end I typed her name into the Facebook search bar.
I scrolled through her photos of AvocadoOnToast and quirky quotes, scrutinising every detail. I analysed her fashion sense, and checked out how she looked in a bikini. I meticulously examined every selfie, from her pore size to her frown lines. I even looked at what pages she had followed and liked, to get a sense of her interests and opinions. It was devastating. Her hair was perfect, even in tagged photos, and all her checked-in locations showed her hosting charity events.

In one online poll over a quarter of Americans admitted to having engaged in trolling at some point. Now new research into the personality of trolls suggests building their empathy for others could be one way to modify their behaviour. We define trolling as deceptive and disruptive online behaviour , which typically involves posting inflammatory and malicious comments to deliberately provoke and upset people.
An example might be posting a deceitful and inflammatory post on a Facebook memorial page, deliberately designed to upset the person’s family and friends. Our definition of trolling is different to how the media sometimes uses the word trolling to describe a broader range of anti-social online activities. Regardless of the strict definition, trolling and antisocial online behaviour in general can have serious physical and psychological effects on victims.
These include lowered self-esteem, sleep disruption, depression, and in some cases suicide. Psychological studies show trolls tend to be male, show higher levels of psychopathy traits — low levels of empathy, guilt and responsibility for their actions — and higher levels of sadism traits, the enjoyment of causing others physical and psychological pain. Trolls are also motivated by what psychologists call “atypical social rewards”.

And if you’re watching a loved one cycle through the typical emotions associated with this trying chapter—grief, fear, anger, and frustration—not to mention lengthy legal proceedings , it’s easy to feel helpless or concerned that you’ll say the wrong thing. The words, “Don’t worry, you’re better off without them,” don’t always cut it—or even come close to soothing a very complicated situation.
