A “catfish” is a term describing a person owning fake profiles on social networks. They create fake pages with fake picture belonging to other people and fake biography. These people generally make other people in the Net fall in love with them for some personal aims and issues. The term was created in 2010 after the release of a documentary created by Nev Schulman. In the film, Schulman experiences an online relationship with a woman that turned out to be dishonest to him while describing her personality.
About the Show
Producers of Catfish help emotionally entangled people communicate with those whom they’ve never seen online. In every new episode, they investigate into virtual relationships of the participants of the show to prove whether people they’re chatting to are real or not. Couples participating in the project mostly have long-lasting online relationships. In each episode, different individual stories are presented. Nev and Max contact the online lover to investigate his or her real personality.
Some people criticize the show for demonstrating stories of deception without any useful info shared with the viewers. However, most of the critics agree that the show is quite hearty and warm sharing other people’s love stories. Not all of them are fake. No one knows how each investigation will end. When the hosts start it they never know if it’s actually going to end up good, bad or in some over unpredictable way.
