- If someone’s profile pictures seem to from google images then that’s prolly a fake account.
- If most or all of that person’s friends are not from where their status says they live then its most likely a fake profile. Example: Profiles says they live in Chicago, IL but they don’t have any friends in Chicago. RED FLAG.
- Anyone can add pictures but if they are all not tagged maybe they’re stolen pictures from real accounts or from Google.
- On twitter if they tons and tons of tweets, like 200,500 tweets then they are probably not real.
- If the photos just seem too pretty, this should raise a red flag. Just remember the perfect person is not real.
- Check out the follower count. If they are following tons of people but have very little followers. Not good.
