There are lots of ways to make a fake news story appear legitimate, but some users have found it easier to create fake Facebook profiles and posts than others.
The problem is, these sites often don’t show a clear distinction between fake and legitimate content, and users have been sharing their own stories and photos to make them seem authentic.
Some fake Facebook accounts can even appear to belong to real people, according to a new report by the nonprofit group Project Veritas.
Some of these fake Facebook pages can even contain fake accounts.
The group said the trend is growing in popularity because of the spread of fake news on social media, and the “social contagion” of fake content.
One user wrote that he was trying to make the fake Facebook account of his mother look authentic by posting a photo of her wearing a hijab and using a fake Twitter handle, @KhalifaBabila.
He then used the handle @KharifAbuAnsari, which is not the real name of his father.
This fake account was created on April 30, the day after the Boston Marathon bombing.
“I’m going to share this photo of my mother and I have my family to thank for me,” the user wrote.
“This is a photo that has brought us together.”
Another user who shared the photo said that the photo was meant to show the photo of his grandmother and that the mother had just passed away.
“As a result of this photo I was asked to become the ‘Mum’ and ‘Grandma’ of this account,” he wrote.
Another user claimed that his father was an “accused” of the Boston bombings, and that his mother had been an eyewitness.
He said his father had been arrested after a shootout and was still being held.
“He is an accused terrorist,” he said.
“And he has not been arrested.”
Project Vertex said the same story appeared in an Instagram post, with the name “Hannah” in the caption.
Hannah is the name of Hannah Johnson, who was killed in the Boston bombing.
The Instagram post has since been deleted.
The Project Verita report also found that fake Facebook posts from people with fake names are gaining traction.
A user named @TanyaDana said that she had set up a fake account in order to post a photo to Instagram.
She then posted it to Instagram in a photo she said was of her and a friend.
“People were seeing this and sharing it,” she said.
“@TanyaDaana was creating a fake Facebook profile to make it seem like a real person,” said the Project Verity report.
“But this was a fake profile.
It was only a photo.”
A user by the name @MollyDale posted a photo in which she said she was “pushing my limits” to create a Facebook profile.
Molly Dale is a 23-year-old professional athlete from New York City who competes in the CrossFit Games.
The photo is a fake, and it shows her wearing what looks like a sweatshirt and an orange cap.
“A photo posted by Molly Dale (@mollydale_nyc) on Apr 26, 2018 at 8:58am PDT “It is my personal account and my real name,” she wrote.
I was told I was a fraud,” she told Project Veracity. “
My name is Molly.
I was told I was a fraud,” she told Project Veracity.
Project Veridad said that Molly Dale used the photo to create an account called “molly” that was later removed.
“It’s hard to say whether this is a genuine account or an online prank,” Project Verida said in a statement.
“If Molly had set her fake profile to be public, it’s possible she would have used the same photos and fake profile for multiple people to create the fake profile.”
Molly Dale, who also goes by Molly M. “Buck,” also told Project VERITY that she set up the account in hopes of making a Facebook friend.
Molly’s account has since disappeared.
“When I posted my photo I thought I was making a good post about CrossFit,” she claimed.
“So I created my fake Facebook page.
It has been empty for months now.”
Molly’s profile has since changed to the name Molly Cole.
She told ProjectVeritas that she uses an online photo editing program to remove fake photos.
Molly Cole was a member of the New York Knicks and New York Giants teams from 2008 to 2017.
She won a league MVP award in 2015 and was named a finalist for the 2017 NBA MVP award.
Molly said she is also a member the National Basketball Association’s Women’s Basketball Team and a member “of the United States Olympic Committee.”
The team has yet to comment on Molly’s claim.
