My name is Janne Ahlberg and I’m a security professional from Finland. This blog is about identifying fake or hoax pictures.
Fake – picture is modified (“photoshopped”)
Hoax – picture is not necessarily modified, but taken out of context
Fake and hoax pictures are often used for propaganda, but also for other purposes like increasing popularity in social media.
