Abstract

In today’s life almost everyone is in association with the online social networks. These sites have made drastic changes in the way we pursue our social life. But with the rapid growth of social networks, many problems like fake profiles, online impersonation have also grown. Current announces indicate that OSNs are overspread with abundance of fake user’s profiles, which may menace the user’s security and privacy. In this paper, we propose a model to identify potential fake users on the basis of their activities and profile information. To show the effectiveness of our model, we have developed a Facebook canvas application called “SocialMedia” as a proof of concept. We also conducted an online evaluation of our application among Facebook users to show usability of such apps. The results of evaluation reported that the app successfully identified possible fake friend with accuracy 87.5%.
