Use of fake Facebook personas – Spread doubt, misinformation, rumours

Fake Facebook accounts created to sway the online community and invoke rage


Fake accounts help feed the fuel between rioters and the digital lynch mob, between lynch mob members, distract police investigators, invoke hate, racism, sexism.  Plain misinformation.  Create the fake account.  Post fake messages, fake pictures, fake videos, Facebook chat.  Discredit all sources of information, and lastly, the faker calls out the errors of any “real data”.  The faster that fake Facebook accounts are set up.  The faster the misinformation lives.  The first to establish the collective opinion with the online reader, the longer misinformation will prevail.  Turning the online victims of any crime into the online “bad guy”.
