Yesterday (June 12, 2013), Miss China Anne McClain shared this image on her Instagram account.
The “A.N.T. Farm” actress wrote a super great message about why she tags her photos:
So here’s the deal guys… A lot of people think since I tag my photos with “©China McClain” I’m a fake account. I tag my photos so fake accounts can’t steal them. The REAL fakes that people actually believe can be very dangerous. One time a fake twitter account that was pretending to be me tricked one of my fans into believing that he/she was really me. The fake account said that they wanted to meet the girl. At a hotel. The girl showed up.. but she was smart enough to bring her mom. If she had gone alone, what would have happened to her? That’s why I started tagging them with a watermark. So I could at least reduce the fakes a little bit. Just wanted to let you guys know the story behind it. Hope you are having a good day
Great explanation, China! Makes perfect sense to me! 🙂
