Catfishing has become a growing phenomenon among internet daters in search of finding love online. With increasing work demands opportunities to meet and establish relationships can be a difficult balancing act for a lot of singles. Traditional dating approaches to meeting and dating has become all but obsolete as new dating approaches emerge, allowing people to meet without leaving the comfort of their home. However, with new opportunities and access to meeting, the likelihood of “catfishing,” also increases.

Social media is a powerful tool that can allow people from all over the world to strengthen their relationships or on the other hand, destroy them as well within a single stroke of a key. This form of technology allows people to have the capability and capacity to meet new people from all over the world. However, with inappropriate usage it can eventually lead it to being a bane for its users. Based on research conducted, over 70% of all internet users are users of social media.

It’s evident to recognize that today as a society we are more connected with each other than ever before. We can keep up to date with what our friends and family are doing.
