Vitalik Buterin Angry with Facebook for Not Deleting Fake and Scam Accounts

Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin has expressed his indignation at millions of obvious scams using his name on major social networks, such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, in order to steal digital currency, like bitcoin or other altcoins from inexperienced investors. He has called to his followers for help in banning malicious profiles.

More social media platforms are reluctant to act on their own, which is why just as here on this forum, you have to keep reporting in order to initiate action from the moderators. If people just see a scam of fake account, but don't report it, then it will remain active for a very long time. Reports have to come from numerous people in order to trigger action on social media, because there is some sort of fake report barrier you have to break through in order to make it. I'm sure that he with his following can trigger mass report attacks on these accounts, which should take these accounts offline within 24 hours, especially in obvious cases. It's a global problem that affects non crypto individuals as well.

Yeah I totally agree. But the problem with social media is that they said they are going to ban ads regarding crypto so it would make sense for them to really filter out those fake profiles as well. But there are numerous reports that we can still see ads in Facebook, Google and Twitter so I don't know if they are doing it properly or not doing it at all.

Well they are quick to ban fake profiles though, but you need to report them so appropriate actions can be taken. And Vitalik has every right to be mad to them because crypto has turned out to be a circus lately specially in the frenzy of December and there are still scammers out there targeting unsuspecting victims using not only Vitalik's name but other well known personality in the crypto sphere.
