Russel Tarr has just released a new version of Fakebook. Fakebook is Russel’s tool for creating fake Facebook profiles. The latest version of Fakebook makes it easy to create a page by just clicking on a field and entering as much information as you like. In the profile picture field you can enter a name and Fakebook will search for images to use. For example, if you create a Fakebook page about George Washington Fakebook will search for pictures of George Washington.
Applications for Education
Creating a fake Facebook profile could be a fun way for students to
organize information that they know and or find about a famous person.
You could also have students create profiles for characters in a novel
that they are reading for your literature course. Take a look at the Fakebook profile gallery for more ideas about using Fakebook in your classroom.
