Isro warns against fake social media pages

It appears people on social media are trying to con Isro and the general public at large by creating pages in the name of the space agency. 

Making it clear that it has no truck with such pages, Isro has stated that “many pages in social media (Facebook and Twitter) being floated in the name of ISRO/Department of Space/Mangalyaan, have no authenticity and ISRO does not take any responsibility for any content hosted on these pages.”

Isro lists some of these forged pages: a. https: //www.facebook.com / isro.org;b. https://www.facebook.com/pages/ISRO-Indian-Space-Research- Organisation/123014641053950; c.https://twitter.com/Mangalyaan1; https:// twitter.com /ISRO_India; e. https: //twitter.com /ISROBhuvan

The space agency, in a statement, said action is being taken in accordance with law against such pages and persons running the pages. Isro has an official page on Facebook titled “ISRO’s Mars Orbiter Mission” (facebook.com/isromom) launched on October 22, 2013, to provide near real time authentic information about the programme.
