    A fake profile scare

    With the advent of more social networking sites,people of all ages and gender have taken a plunge in this virtual world.Many a time,we may not even be sure that the person we are communicating with online is a male or a female!Multiple fake profiles are created by cunning people who want to extract personal data like photos and videos by building confidence and befriending the targeted individual.
    Even though it is stupid to share selfies,photos etc with unknown people but it's a sad reality which happens.Teenagers especially trust their peers easily and try to share their problems thus creating a trap for themselves in the future.Hiw to stop this menace and create awareness about its implications?

    No one can teach you how to behave in internet while sharing details and personal information, It all depends on your understanding of a person and his positive behavior. Normally in Facebook or other social media, we are only in contact with those who are been chosen and given approval by us as the friend and in that case you might have judged the person and given the nod. What I feel that if you are in good group and having good friendship with that group on interaction every day, nothing goes wrong. But never ever approve a person as friend by not knowing him with his entry to your profile. That is danger and never share photo or other details.

    Few people fake in real life also and exploit the gullible one. In a virtual world, it becomes easier for them to indulge in such activities. Since most of such sites thrive on advertisements, only statistics count. The websites project that they are having so many visitors or members and fix their advertising rates accordingly.
    Generally, people add or connect only with known people on such websites, but the teenagers lack experience and easily fell into the trap of the fakers.
    Social websites have become so common that the individuals having basic knowledge of operating buttons on a smartphone have started using the same even without knowing that they can be easily traced. Many anti-social elements are also using such websites for their ulterior motives.
    Sleaze/porn is being posted/shared and marketed on such sites and in the name of chatting, fantasies are being fulfilled. Only a few months back the Government had to retract its order of banning port sites in the name of freedom of expression etc.

    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

    Voice conversion softwares and apps are also freely downloadable and they help you gain total control over the age and gender of your voice. One can easily access and modify every characteristic of one's voice. Your voice will sound deeper, higher, younger, older, more feminine, more masculine, or modified in any way you like; you're in charge. With the help of voice preferences and voice effects, each setting combination you create defines a truly unique voice that you can save and access at any time, or update/modify any time you like.This is a tool used for befriending with the intention of not revealing one's true identity and it is misused by such cunning people.

    I am proud and happy to say that I don't use social networking sites/apps like Facebook, twitter, WhatsApp etc,. I don't have an account in any of them and may create one only if it is highly necessary. In my opinion, using such sites is mostly a waste of time. Most of my friends spend hours with those sites/apps but I spend that time with ISC now. The crimes happening through these sites are rapidly increasing now a days. So, it is better to use these sites only when required.

    Let us continue learning.
