Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of a social-networking site that allows people to covertly stalk their friends and loved ones, has gotten a restraining order against an actual stalker. Pradeep Manukona was ordered to stay at least 300 yards away from Facebook founder Zuckerberg, his girlfriend, and his sister Randi, after Manukona threatened all three. The restraining order claims Manukona “follow[ed], surveil[led], and contact[ed] Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety.” How far did he go? Well, aside from writing pleading notes to Zuckerberg via his Facebook page — including one that read “please help me, then I am ready to die for you … Please understand my pain” — Manukona also traveled to Facebook’s headquarters in California to beg for Zuckerberg’s help in person.
