According to Wikipedia, Cyberstalkers (cyberbullies/cyberharrasers) “threaten a victim’s earnings, employment, reputation and/or safety using things like Weblogs, industry forums or boards and commercial Web sites.
One of the ways you can protect yourself online is to be active on social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. If you use these tools to build your reputation, to help those in need and show that you genuinely care about others, people will soon begin to trust and depend on you. Then, if someone tries to blacken your reputation or write untrue stories about you, your friends and contacts can leap to your defense.

By searching for your profile online, you can see what type of content leads directly to you that people might be using in their efforts to harass you.
