Social media is an essential tool that allows billions of people to share information on a different perspective in real-time and without censorship. People are less likely to lie and act more responsibly on online platforms when they can be identified. However, the freedom present in social media platforms comes at the cost of encountering cyber-attacks. Social media is characterized by anonymity and false identities; this makes it difficult to detect the source of cyber threats on such platforms. Cyber-security caused by people on social media is widespread and have generated a lot of attention. Social media has also been associated with other negative aspects such as cyberbullying and cyber-terrorism where terrorist groups use the platforms to acquire new members. Fighting deception requiresthe combined effort of both the developers and social media users; this help in detection of such cases and therefore handle them appropriately. The research below focusses identifying and detecting deception on social media.
