Thiruvananthapuram: A post containing guidelines for detecting fake accounts on social media has been withdrawn from the official Facebook page of the Kerala Police. Police withdrew the post amid criticism and trolls on social media.
The troll said that if he read some of the instructions given by the police to find fake accounts, the readers would think to themselves whether he was a fake or not. Following this, the police edited the post several times but it was eventually removed.
If a woman’s profile has more than 4,000 friends and followers, the risk of being hacked is very high.
Police had said that if the profile picture is of a film actress or actor, the chances of a fake are high. Some on social media pointed out that the same police had posted a few days ago that the profile pictures of the girls were being misused.
Here are some suggestions on how to use it properly:
Ways to identify a fake profile.
1. Profile Image If there is only one profile photo in the album, there is a chance that it will be fake. If the profile picture is of a movie star or actor, the chances of a fake are high. The profile image album will have more pictures of celebrities.
2. Check the timeline and status update. False if no status has been updated for a long time.
3. Do not post, do not comment on other people’s posts. These are the symptoms of fake. Most liars are those who have never had a status update
4. Take a look at recent activities. Profiles that focus on simply increasing the number of friends without liking any page or joining any group may be fake.
5. Check the friends list. The fact that the majority of a woman’s account is male, or the majority of the male account is female, is a sign of fraud.
6. Notice if the profile responds in a non-serious way, such as date of birth, place of work, place of study.
