    How to identify fake profiles on Facebook?


    Are you confused with the ways to identify fake profiles in Facebook? if so just go through this thread.

    Sometimes I am getting friend request in Facebook from some unknown person. He / She doesnt have any mutual friend or even any details in common. I know there are people who randomly give request to people once they join as they are not aware of what they have to do in Facebook, but we cannot ignore that many profiles are created with fake names either to make fun of someone or with bad intentions. Though, I find it by some manual methods like checking the friends, status updates and photos. Is there any tool or software which helps in sorting out fake profiles? Even if you dont have idea about any legitimate software, kindly share your technique to find fake Facebook profiles.

    (1) Identify a fake facebook account by photo: The profile photo can help us to know about the account whether it is fake or true. If in profile page there is only one photo of the individual, it shows that the account may be faked.

    (2) Identify a fake facebook account by updates, wall posts and comments: The user is not active in his account for a long time. He did not update his status. He did not comment on others for a long time. It shows that the account may be faked.

    (3) Identify a fake facebook account by recent activities: we can identify a fake account by observing the resent activities. If the user makes new friends but does not link or join new groups, it means that the account is fake.

    (6) Identify a fake facebook account by birth dates: We can identify a fake account by the date of birth. Generally the common date of birth in fake account is written as 10/08/13 because it is easy to type. So if you find such type of pattern in date of birth writing, you can generally assume that the account may be faked.

    (7) Identify a fake facebook account by contact number: If you find in any girls account with her contact number, you can assume that the account may be faked because girls do not generally write their mobile number in their account.

    (8) Identify a fake facebook account by recent wall posts: If we see that there are many people who are sending 'Thanks' or 'Do I now you?' but the user does not responds it and his most posts are unanswered, it means that the account may be faked.

    Friend, I am sharing my way to Identify the fake profile because analysing is the best way to identify that the profile is fake or not.
    1. The first and foremost method of checking the profile is fake or not by viewing their profile pictures check whether there is profile pictures or some wallpapers if there is wallpapers its hint its fake .

    2. Second way is that he/she will be following too much people because a fake profile always want to fool all.

    3. Now, check the likes section:-

    a.If the profile is of boy than likes would be of men type and there will be many pages like by him.

    b.If that profile belongs to a girl than there will be likes to the pages of cosmetics , Shampoos other ladies items , Serials, etc.

    and if no more pages are liked then it's absolutely a fake Id and in a girl account likes section there is showing the likes of a boy interest then also it's a fake id and viceversa, this analysis works mostly.

    4. Check the date when the Facebook user has joined facebook if it's a new id that is opened recently then the chances for its fake get increases.

    5. Check the friend list if its privacy is set to public - if number of friends is more than normal then it's fake and all friends are from different different field then it's really fake.

    6. Try to chat with the fake Id and if the messages you are recieving shows that in first meet she is mad to you it's prove it's a fake.

    7. If you are not knowing whom you are talking to the other knows many things then you should make a doubt about that Facebook Id.
