Quick TEQ: Facebook is working on a new account identifying tool that will help reduce harassment online, and will improve account authenticity. It will automatically alert you if it detects another user is impersonating your account by using your profile picture or name.
Believe it or not, but making social media accounts on platforms like Twitter and Facebook is fairly easy. In fact each phone number can link up to four Facebook accounts. You might just have one account, but who knows maybe someone has created a fake account that goes by your name. In some countries of the world, the social and cultural ramifications of being defamed can have a serious impact on people’s lives. It is important that social networks have proper tools in place that help identify actual accounts, from impersonating accounts, and Facebook is currently working on that.
