FakeOff app protects business profiles from spoofing

See also

As with anything between apples and zoology, there is an up and downside to Facebook. Because Facebook has 1/3 of the Earth’s attention and active participation, employers and businesses are finding out – and finding out quickly – that either Facebook will benefit long-term goals, or shoot them dead.

In this segment, we shall examine Facebook and leverage the upside and downside to using it for daily business, including how the ingeniously designed FakeOff app can protect the interests of businesses and consumers alike.

Data Leakage

This is the biggest and probably most serious problem when it comes to companies joining Facebook. Even if all the security in the world is made use of to protect data and make it secure, there is nothing that can be done with the people working there.

Many employers feel that giving access to Facebook is dangerous because it is possible for company employees to share sensitive information with their network most of whom would not be employees of the same organization.

Building Rapport

There is no point in having a Facebook page if it is not getting any responses or likes. While Facebook is a great resource with nearly a billion users on the site, but if you are not promoting your page properly it is basically collecting social media dust. Developers of the FakeOff app know firsthand that building rapport means answering positives and negatives with tact - but it also means having tools to fight unscrupulous activities meant to foil potential consumers and their own Facebook profiles, which FakeOff combats.

Building rapport means more to businesses like FakeOff, the reason why Eliran Shachar helped innovate this app.

Rumor Mongering

Some of the biggest problems to come up with Facebook are those that deal with employees ranting and raving about their organization on Facebook. Many employees have found that their comments about their job have even cost them their job. Yet, this is a small irritant when it is compared to other bigger problems.

For instance, there are a number of organizations that forbid the use of phones inside the office, and employees are not allowed to access their mail. However, they may be online and access the Internet because their work calls for this. A corporate firewall usually enforces this.

Although a corporate Facebook account can be useful to send messages to others within the same organization, and even share information, making their workplace a little fun too, it is dangerous because this network is connected to the outside world. If any employee discusses information that may not be restricted within the company, but is not meant for the general public, they may be putting their organization at risk. This is more so for publicly listed companies than for privately held ones. FakeOff can help all profile holders maintain transparency while hanging out in Facebook.

Facebook decorum for businesses

If you’re going to use Facebook for business, then you need to know a few things about being professional and giving the right impression. This is more important than ever before because people have actually lost jobs and been removed from positions based on things they post on Facebook and other social media.

Keep face easily using the FakeOff app as a cutting-edge business, or consumer, and discover quickly how easily you can unfoil some crook's harmful intent.
