Advocacy group Working to Halt Online Abuse (WHO@) publishes comprehensive statistics on cyberstalking and online harassment. According to this information, victims of online stalking are spread evenly across all age groups, although over the past decade the number of males being stalked online has almost doubled. An estimated 1 in 12 women in the US has experienced stalking either online or offline.
Victims of stalking are also more likely to know the perpetrator than one may think. Nearly 75 percent of those affected by this crime knew their stalkers in one way or another. Of this demographic, those who have been victims of domestic violence are the most vulnerable when it comes to online stalking.
