How to spot a FAKE PROFILE on facebook

Well ever since I lost my facebook profile (the one where I had 4000 people) , random profiles of me popped up either using my full name or some other name. So I have decided to blog about how to […]

 

Zero respect

Lately it seems that if you bring something disturbing to technical support of a portal, the responses
become more and more unprofessional, devoid of any humanity.

It really makes one not want to bother using a platform because the way that it cares about its customers.

I am not going to list names of portals that give this zero respect because I don’t want to clutter my blog with this type of negative energy.

I just think that one should be made aware that just because a portal `thinks’ it is big – does not mean that the responses from it will be anything close to good.

Some responses to Christy Mack being brutally beaten

Christy Mack who was beaten so badly last week that she was hospitalised.

Her account of her own attack shows such intelligence and her incredible escape after such a horrific attack and such injuries makes me think she’s literally indomitable.

These are just some of the responses to Christy Mack being brutally beaten by her boyfriend.

Some people have zero respect for women.

Robin Williams died at age of 63

I remembered the master of impressions for his tender portrayal in “Mrs. Doubtfire”, when he played the part of a British nanny whose identity he assumed as a divorced father to be with his children.

I really appreciated that he , Robin Williams, would do absolutely anything as long as he was with his children.

RIP Robin Williams

Hero Cat Saves Boy

I love animals.

But I love cats more…

A cat by the name of Tara, in Bakersfield, California, came to the rescue of a vicious dog attack.
The dog belonged to one of the neighbours randomly attacked a 4-year-old boy, Jeremy Triantafilo as he is playing on his bike in the driveway.

Jeremy had to have stiches, but the attack could have been far worse.

The neighbour’s dog had to be euthanised.

Dangers of allowing randoms to add you as a friend on facebook

Some people think it is cool to have as many `friends’ as they can to seem popular on social-media.

There are quite a few dangers to allowing randoms that you do not actually know in reality:

1) IDENTITY THEFT
They can save all of your photos, date of birth, all the personal details that make you , you and create a new profile under a different name.

2) STALKING
Many people that use a smart-phone to access facebook , use the Check-in feature to show where they are currently
(By default, that setting is set to `Public’). Even if you change that setting to `Friends only’ , unless you actually know the people you are allowing onto your facebook – there is quite a possibility that they can stalk your every movement …

3) FAKE PROFILES using fake genders to get you to add them

Here is an example of a FAKE PROFILE with the name Sana Naz. The profile uses a female name, a profile photo of a female and the profile reflects as a `her’ in the about section…

notgirl

But after accepting the friend request, thinking that it is a female – an inbox message showing the male genitals is visible…
notgirl2

Now if you allowed the setting that anyone as friends can post on your timeline – this FAKE PROFILE could have spammed your wall with their photo of their genitals – it would have come up on your timeline and your friends and family would have been exposed to that … and you would have received some nasty emails from them asking if you allow that type of content …

RATHER AVOID ADDING RANDOM PEOPLE YOU DO NOT KNOW IN REAL LIFE !!

To wake up one day and realise that your online presence has been compromised is a really frightening feeling.

I hope that she gets sorted soon.

Impersonation

Just thought I would let you know that I did report that profile that tried to impersonate me on facebook.

This is the result.

rem04072014

Yes, it does seem to be a WIN for now … but I will be checking randomly to see if more profiles on socialmedia appear and take action accordingly.

Always be on the lookout if you too have been impersonated by some random somewhere in this world …
