WHAT DOES 'CATFISH' MEAN?
What is catfishing on the internet? It’s when someone pretends to be another person online. Sometimes they’ll use someone else’s pictures as their profile picture on a dating app. And they’ll even build a fake life for them.
So, like, John might pretend to be a girl called Jessica and he’ll steal pictures from someone else and pretend they looooove skateboarding down the beach in LA when they’re really sat scoffing a bag of crisps in Leicester.
So, how do you spot a catfish in the wild? Grab ya binoculars…
