This all started after I saw GradeAUnderA's video about catfishing. Something I didn't think was still an issue as I never have e-dated.
Spam, phishing, trolling, clickbait, fake internet news and bullying have been around since the internet long before modern social media and likely won't ever stop. But the problem with modern phishing, trolling, fake enws and spam, is that they seemingly have grown since the dawn of more modern social media. Where when it used to be delivered privately or posted on blogs and fan sites you had to go digging for, it's now being readily shared like wildfire on Facebook and Twitter just to name only two cources. And it's been this way since MySpace was popular. And fake dating profiles made for the purposes of trolling and phishing have been around since e-dating was invented. And while conventional ahte vlogs on Youtube and other video services seemingly have taken the decline, clickbait thumbnails and drama channels have been waning in and out of popularity for years especially most recently. Even if clickbait thumbnails have been against the TOS for a while!
The mesures I raved about just there should be implemented no matter how hard. Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Tinder and various other services are more than big and rich enough to employ more mods and even work with top sleuthing and virus fighting teams and services out there like Facecrooks and Snopes and Avast, and should they start blacklisting entire sites and algorithms as well as permabanning the biggest contributors, the internet will be hat much more of a safe place. As too many gullible and or lonely men, women, children and old people alike have been victimized and violated by the oldest tricks, and most sociopathic volitile toxic cancerous trolls of the darkest scarist corners of the web.
