Recent statistics show that at least 10% of approx. 1.35 Billion Facebook users are not authentic. In addition, there are millions of users who take fake identities and appear as regular users. Fake profiles are divided into several main groups – criminals, commercial, psychological, etc. – that can risk our reputation (identity theft), our children (pedophiles & sexual abuse), our property (home break-ins) and our personal safety.
The FakeOFF application is using a highly sophisticated internal algorithm that’s specifically designed to investigate the behavior of suspected "friends" and rank them according to a 1-10 credibility score. The application scans up to 365 days of timeline activity for every unscrupulously devised Facebook ‘friend’ and checks for abnormal activities conducted by these individuals.
As fake profiles on Facebook usually can't use authentic images on their timeline, FakeOFF also runs an image scan that searches the web for the source of the suspect image.
