Recognizing Phenomenon Catfishing

In a press statement, Monday (7/30), it was explained that Catfishing is a term used to describe fraud that uses identity on line fake to trick the victim.

Fraudsters usually use other people’s photos and information to create a trustworthy online persona, and then lure the victim to further trap the victim in various scams and lead to criminal action.

Phenomenon catfishing this turned out to be a major risk factor for dating app users.

A study states, 65% of a total of 18,000 respondents in 27 countries, including Indonesia, expressed concern about dating apps, and sadly, 15% of the total respondents reported that they had experienced fraud.

Of the various modes of fraud, catfishing became the number one modus operandi with 51% of those targeted having been caught in it.

Internet freedom allows anyone to create their own identity, so anyone can be any character they want online.

“The Internet allows people to do identity play, in the sense that a person can create his own identity so that he can become whatever character he wants in cyberspace. Unfortunately, this technology is also used to commit a number of frauds,” Donny said in a press statement, Monday (7/3).

Characteristics Catfishing

There are main characteristics that can be used as a reference to identify catfishingnamely: refuse to do video callavoid face-to-face meetings, and limit communication to chat and voice call.

“Most likely, the culprit catfishing behaved like that to protect his identity from being exposed. So, the victim will not know the face of the perpetrator catfishing the truth,” said Bentang.

Furthermore, Dian looked at the phenomenon catfishing occurs when people are not comfortable with themselves, so that the perpetrator cannot show his true personality without disguise.

“From a psychological point of view, this is called identity confusion, so they confuse themselves. When we use Facebook or Instagram, then often take photos using filter rather than appearing natural, this shows that there is something going on with the person’s personality,” said Dian.

Currently, the Ministry of Communication and Information through GNLD Siberkreasi continues to present various webinars and programs workshop education to address digital literacy issues.

Twitter is Building a Dedicated Tab for Podcasts

The social media platform Twitter is reportedly building a dedicated podcast tab, as shown in a screenshot uploaded by developer Jane Manchun Wong, quoted from The Verge, Saturday (5/3). The image shows the microphone symbol at the bottom of the Twitter menu, leading to a page titled “Podcasts.”

The screenshot doesn’t show any indication of how the podcast will be displayed on the platform or possibly merged with Spaces, Twitter’s audio-only chat feature. Currently, Spaces broadcasts are accessible at the top of Twitter and it makes sense to organize them in a separate tab.

Twitter began venturing into audio via Spaces in 2020. Spaces recordings are similar to podcasts, except that they can only be played back to the public for 30 days. If the broadcast feature on Twitter is the same as Spotify or Apple Podcasts, users can choose which one they want to listen to whenever they want, no need to rush because they are worried that the recording deadline will be deleted.

Spaces, can now be recorded by any host or host Android and iOS users, and can be played back to the public for 30 days.

Twitter first introduced the Spaces recording feature last October to only a handful of hosts who were iOS users.

Then in December, Twitter began allowing use of the feature to some host Android users and the recordings were available for users to listen to on iOS, Android, and the web.

Recently, Twitter expanded the use of Spaces by allowing all users on both Android and iOS to be able to become hosts, as quoted from The Verge. Previously, only users with 600 followers or more could host on Spaces. (Ant/OL-12)

WhatsApp is Preparing a Tab Feature for the Community

WhatsApp is working on a new feature in the form of a tab for the community called Community in the instant messaging application.

The WABetaInfo page, quoted on Saturday, saw the Community tab in the WhatsApp application beta version for Android.

Based on their findings, this Community tab is on the far left, replacing the tab for the camera. The Community Home will contain a list of the communities the user is following.

The community in the WhatsApp application contains a number of groups. WhatsApp group admins, when this feature comes, will be able to add chat groups to the Community.

In addition to the Community tab, WhatsApp is also working on a new feature for recording voice messages, found in the Android beta version of the app.

WhatsApp designed a pause button, not just stop, to record voice messages. The pause button serves to pause while recording a voice message, after which the user can continue recording again.

The pause voice recording feature is already on the desktop and iOS versions of WhatsApp, however, it’s not on Android yet.

These new features are still under development, may be released when WhatsApp updates the instant messaging app. (Ant/OL-12)

Apple Will Soon Launch iPhone SE

Apple in the near future will soon launch the third generation iPhone SE in 2022, precisely on March 8, with sales prices starting from US $ 300 or equivalent to Rp. 4.3 million.

Quoted from GSM Arena, Monday (28/2), the price is much lower than the previous generation, namely the iPhone SE 2020 or the second generation iPhone SE, which at the time of its initial sale was sold for US$399 or around Rp. 5.7 million.

The latest price for the iPhone SE 2022 is a prediction issued by an Apple analyst named John Donovan.

However, Apple analyst Daniel Ives argues that Apple may stick with a similar price tag with the launch of the second generation iPhone.

Daniel still doesn’t deny that Apple might be able to offer a lower price. This third generation iPhone SE will be called the iPhone SE + 5G.

The phone will be the cheapest 5G smartphone from Apple and we hope that with the upgraded chipset along with camera performance and 5G network, users can still get a good experience while using the phone.

The chipset that will be used in the iPhone SE + 5G is Apple’s A15 Bionic chip which was also embedded in the last iPhone 13 series.

In terms of design, it is certain that there will be no major changes and still maintain the style that has been used since the iPhone SE was launched in 2017. (Ant/OL-12)
