Social Impersonation

Fake profiles expose brand owners to serious threats including identity theft, theft of customers, revenues and damage to the goodwill of a targeted brand. Twitter estimates that approximately 8% of its profiles are fake and identifying fake profiles as they appear is trick without technology constantly scanning social media platforms. Fake profiles vary in intent. The most common reasons that we see fake profiles are:
  • opportunistic registrations¬†– 3rd parties hoping to sell a handle back to the brand owner
  • sell counterfeit products – on a handle branded with the IP owners logos, content and products
  • steal traffic – normally competitors or advertisement/traffic firms trying to direct your customers to their web properties
  • harm your reputation – disgruntled customers, ex-employees or business associates intent on harming your brand
