One of the great concerns that users usually have when using an application to flirt or meet people is knowing how to recognize fake profiles on Facebook Dating , Tinder, Badoo or any other similar app . Many times everything indicates that they have finally found the ideal partner with whom to have a good time and get to know each other, but the fear that everything has been a castle in the clouds is latent.
Like any platform of this type, Facebook Couples is not 100% a scam, but there is never a lack of people willing to take advantage of users who want to use the app legitimately, so it is important to detect some signs that allow us to determine if we are dealing with a fake account or really the person on the other side of the screen is who they say they are.
One of the first keys to detect this type of profiles is the number of photographs they have in their profiles . If they only have a few photos and there is nothing else (no news, no reflections, no reference to their work), it is likely that you are dealing with a fake profile.
However, the clearest sign that we are dealing with what is known as a catfish in the Anglo-Saxon world and simply as a fraud in the Hispanic world is their reaction to a simple request. If said user is constantly putting off the possibility of making a video call or a voice call through Facebook, the result is clear and it is not because he is a shy person, it is because he is probably not even the one that appears in the photos of their profiles.
Another clear symptom of a fake profile is when you are reluctant to meet in person . Facebook Couples is a branch of Facebook dedicated exclusively to meeting people with romantic intentions or having a good time, so you will have more than enough reasons to be suspicious if it shows more resistance than normal (even for a shy or introverted person).
The behavior of these fake profiles is also usually easily identifiable since they write in an intense and sustained way over time. The usual thing in this type of application is to write during the day as free spaces are found at work or in daily chores, so it is a sign (not 100% infallible, everything must be said), that we are against potential fraud.
HOW TO DISCOVER THE BOTS IN FACEBOOK COUPLES
Other users have also been concerned about the number of automated accounts in this section of the app, wanting to find out how to discover Facebook Dating bots quickly and efficiently. In general, bots are fake profiles that try to get some benefit from you, so it is likely that sooner rather than later they will provide you with a link to take you to a platform. Be very careful with these phishing or scam attempts , as they can compromise your computer and infect it with a virus.
Beyond the obvious reaction to a bot speeding past a link, pay close attention to the little details. On Reddit there are quite a few users who have detected a pattern whereby many profiles of Chinese women appear in locations in the US and Canada , with very attractive high-resolution photographs, and curiously, all of them interested in the world of cryptocurrencies. If they’re not bots, they look pretty similar.
Another method that works to detect bots on Facebook Dating is the language advantage, since most are configured in English . If we meet a person interested in us who only speaks to us in English even though he is in our location, white and in a bottle: robot.
