How to know fake facebook account

Lets try to know fake facebook account

1. If there is only one photo of individual in profile it quite clear that the account is fake.
2. If the user not updated a status from long time and not involved in any wall posting or commenting of other statuses, it means that the profile is likely to be fake.
3. Fake profiles of girls usually have a contact number in their information Lets face it, girls hardly will have their contact number in public.
4. Check the friend list, if maximum friends are opposite gender, it can be assumed that the profile is used either for fun or for random dating.
5. Look at the recent activities. If it is that the user has just been adding randomers and making new friends.
6. Check the info. If found that there is no ideal links given regarding school or education institutions or workplace and that the user is looking for dating and interested in both men and women, it shows signs of fakeness.
7. Check the birthdate. Birth dates like 2/2/XX…..or……23/10/XX are common between fake accounts as it is quite unique and easy to type in.
8. Look for common traits used in facebook, like. using applications such as farmville, pet society etc….and adding siblings. If these traits are not found among the user, the profile is highly inactive or fake. This point can’t single handedly prove the fakeness, however this will be a supporting clue along with other points.
9. If you are quite certain about the profile’s fakeness, and want to be absolutely sure, try browsing google for some random profile picture. Fake profile pictures are usually selected from google and while browsing through it, you might as well come upon the picture the user chose for the fake account.
So this is minor summary of fake facebook account. The recently survey shows the percentage of fake account given below:
