** This is a great article for people that are new to networking sites like Facebook and My Space. Don't be fooled.
I've been seeing some pretty obvious poseurs on Facebook pretending to be celebrities. There's a particularly bad one claiming to be Robert Pattinson, hitting on the girls who add him. Do you know of any place the fans can go to check if a Facebook page is legit?
A Facebook page owned by a "Rob T Pattz" who hits on every chick who passes through, and that supposedly represents one of the most hotly desired actors on earth? And you thought it might be fake? Gee, what gave it away?
As you've already deduced, I can guarantee, 200 percent, that the page is fake. In fact, I can guarantee that every single Rob Pattinson profile is also a fake.
...because I called Pattinson's manager today, and the person who picked up the phone told me that the actor—who, to be fair, possesses many other impressive communication tools, including hair that can pick up radio waves from Neptune—is not on Facebook. At all.
But what about other sites? How to know whether this innocuous-looking profile for this here Project Runway contestant is legit? (It is.) Well, there's no one place you can go to confirm that, but there are telltale signs of fakedom.
