Caution Against Forged Social Media Profiles Floated in the Name of ISRO/Department of Space

ISRO started an official page on Facebook titled ISROs Mars Orbiter Mission (facebook.com/isromom) on October 22, 2013, to provide near real time authentic information about the programme.

It is observed that a number of pages in the social media (Facebook and Twitter) are floated in the name of ISRO / Department of Space/ Mangalyaan, etc., which have no authenticity and ISRO does not take any responsibility for any content hosted on these pages. Some of these FORGED pages are:

    https://www.facebook.com/isro.org

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/ISRO-Indian-Space-Research-Orgaisation/123014641053950

    https://twitter.com/Mangalyaan1

    https://twitter.com/ISRO_India

    https://twitter.com/ISROBhuvan

Such impersonation of the organisation is construed to be a serious offence and stern legal actions against these pages/administrators of these pages are being initiated from ISRO/Department of Space to bring them to immediate closure.
