Government, Social Media, and Fraud
I don’t have a lot of time to write this one up, but it was so stunning I wanted to share it with you. One of my Google Alert e-mails came with these two alerts right next to each other:
Two government officials – one in Kenya, one in India – warning citizens about fraud circulating on social media.
I’m sure there’s a lot of this – mostly because I get Google Alerts like this almost every day – but these two resonated. Are we nearing some kind of tipping point for fraudulent imitation of government on social media? How will social media sites address this?
