What is the point of verification?
Verification is important to decrease the prevalence of fake bots, trolling and cyberbullying.
“Anonymity is often an essential component of cyberbullying and is used to refer to anonymous posts and interactions in which a person’s identity cannot be determined through the computer IP address, usernames, or handles.”
“Cyberbullying also provides anonymity to the bully not possible with traditional bullying. Because of this, bullies cannot see the reactions of their victims and studies have shown that they feel less remorse.”
By authenticating users, fake users will be eliminated and there will be less trolling and cyberbullying because a real person is tied to the comment. Join us. Get verified and help make The New Internet a safer, more ethical and open place.
