Whether a Catfish has assumed a fake identity to stalk & harass you for the purpose of emotionally bullying you or to do something much worse, the presence of Catfish lurking among your Facebook Friends is an insidious problem that can be very difficult to eradicate.
Until now, the 1.2 billion Facebook users have had two techniques to try to prevent damage from Catfish lurking among their friends:
It is human nature & a cultural expectation among some younger generations of users, to accept Friend Requests almost automatically, from everyone, with no screening whatsoever. So Catfish protection technique #1 runs counter to the culture of many American teenagers using Facebook. Plus, the average Facebook user between the ages of 18 & 24 have an average 510 Friends. Taking just seven minutes per Friend to validate whether the person is a true, real life friend or a Catfish lurking among their pool of Friends will take those users, on average, 60 hours! Plus the screening for Catfish must be performed periodically, not just once.
