    We all know they've been doing it, but it looks like they are stepping up the efforts... Article on Valuewalk under facebook-fake-account-tool (sorry not allowed to post URL) talks about Facebooks latest efforts, and they are using a multi prong approach.

    Thoughts?

    you can steal real info of other people from other social media and use it on facebook, so it looks real. :3

    How could they detect my bots that use a real browser that mimics Chrome, Firefox, etc. and uses quality ips that not even they would know are proxies?

    This article is about accounts being used to IMPERSONATE real people. It doesnt mention anything about fake accounts that are pretending to be people that dont exist... so none of this info really applies to us imo.

    The technology they use in both situations would be completely different.
