The internet is full of stories of women being raped online.
Many women are afraid to speak up because of the threat of being attacked, and some have been forced to report sexual assaults to authorities.
But how do you know when someone is lying or a fake, or has no idea who you are or what you are talking about?
How can you determine if they are telling the truth or not?
We spoke with Kaitlyn O’Brien, the creator of the anonymous Reddit community known as “the goddess kimbra.”
Her experience has inspired her to create an app that will help users identify if a stranger is lying, pretending to be someone else, or being manipulated.
“I know how you feel, and I want you to know that I have your back,” O’Connor told The Huffington Post.
“So I want to make sure you know that if I was to say that someone is pretending to you or pretending to me, that I would take it seriously.”
O’Connor has developed an app called The Goddess Kimbra that helps users determine if someone is a fake or a liar.
The app uses a technique called “tipping” to identify the person or persons behind the fake or misleading account.
To make sure that a person is truly not a liar, O’Connors app uses three factors: The person’s profile picture, the number of followers the person has, and the person’s name.
“Tipping” is not a hard and fast rule, as the user may be an acquaintance or an acquaintance with someone else.
It also doesn’t tell you whether a person would be a trustworthy person or not.
O’CONNOR: The app can help users determine whether someone is being manipulated, pretending, or a complete fake.
“We use a technique known as ‘tipping’ to determine whether a user is a liar or a total liar,” she told HuffPost.
“And if a user says they’re a total, that means that they lie a lot.”
The app also uses a “scorecard” to track the authenticity of the person who is impersonating them.
Users can set a number of criteria to track down people who are being manipulated online.
For example, if the person says that they are a woman, and then the person is identified as a man, then that’s a fake.
If a user claims that they’re an Asian American, then they’re definitely a fake — they are Asian American.
If they say they’re female, and someone else identifies as female, that person is definitely a false, and they have a huge history of lying.
The only way to know if the user is lying is if they say something that looks like they’re not lying.
So O’CANNON: I also use ‘tipper-markers’ that track the number and appearance of the tipsy person’s Twitter account.
If the tip is very low, that can indicate that it’s a very low-profile person, so it’s less likely that they’d be impersonating a real person.
If it’s really high, then it could be a real human, and we can use the tip for our real-life verification.
When someone says something like, “I was the first to report this guy to law enforcement,” then it’s definitely a lie, and if they don’t say that then it isn’t a fake either.
When O’Connell was a teenager, she was raped by two men who were friends.
She didn’t know how to get help until she was 18, and she was unable to report the attack.
“They would just say, ‘Oh, he’s not a big deal, just a friend, he doesn’t know what he’s doing.’
And that’s when I really knew I was in trouble,” she said.
“When I found out I was raped, I thought, ‘I don’t know if this is real, I don’t really want to deal with it, but maybe it’s okay if I say something,'” she said, recalling the day after the attack and the fear that followed.
“If I didn’t tell anyone, they wouldn’t have gotten this information.
They didn’t want to know, because they didn’t think I was a liar.”
OCONNOR and KITTY: We can use real-time reports from “the gods.”
“I’ve seen so many fake accounts that people use to pretend to be somebody else, so I knew I had to do something to make them stop,” OCONNAIR: “I just wanted to get the information out to the world and let people know that there were real people that were out there that could have helped us, that weren’t just friends that were pretending to someone else.”
This is O’DREILLY’S experience.
OCONNELLY: I started seeing fake accounts because I was 16 and 16 was when I first saw someone pretend to me on a date
