I was watching this show called catfish.. and they say there are like 30 million or more fake profiles online, that are just scamming or cat fishing people A cat fish is for example someone who uses a pic of a very attractive person. And then they simply are not that person,. most of them time its someone out of shape or ulgy. On the show cat fish.. they go meet these liars. and a lot of people get hurt when they find out the person talking to them online.. was never really the person in the pic. What do you think and why ?

I believe most of fake profiles are just getting around for a certain profit. I don't think it's wrong as long it doesn't offend or hurt anyone what do you say?

yes if they use it to promote and make money online but not lie to hurt peoples feelings or scam.. then I think it's ok. But if they lie and hurt people then I feel it's wrong to do.. Blessings
