“Fraping” is a combination of Facebook and rape, and refers to someone making changes to you social media account without your knowledge.
File this under things that shouldn’t be associated with rape: having your Facebook account vandalized by pranksters and friends.
Speaking earnestly, Eames said the act of fraping happens when someone alters your Facebook account information or changes their status without consent (e.g. “I’m pooping!”).
“Take for example the form of fraping—where you’re raped on Facebook, where a youngster has their status open and another person puts a message on there as if they wrote it,” Eames said in a three-minute rant to the joint committee on transport and communications that’s racked up 30,000 views in two days.
“The message could be for example sexual, and that goes out into the world as if they said. … This type of thing has to stop.”
Eame also warned about some phenomenon called sexting. “I heard recently that’s a criminal offense,” she said.
She also expressed concern over someone’s digital footprint possibly being used against that person.
Please no one tell her about Snapchat.
