CAB Presents: Nev Schulman of MTV's Catfish

Many of us nowadays maintain a nearly constant digital presence. Some of us even date others strictly online, even if they live in far-flung corners of the world.

But how do you know that the person you've been dating online is really who they claim to be? The 2010 film Catfish explored this idea. When the concept caught on, MTV optioned the film into a reality series, and MTV's "Catfish" was born.

The series follows host and creator of the original film Nev Schulman as he travels around the country and investigates online relationships, helping lovers determine if their love is real or if they've been deceived by a "catfish," an individual who creates a fake online profile in order to seduce or enamor another person.

Nev will be speaking about his experiences here at SIUe on Tuesday, Oct. 29. There will be a Q&A session following the lecture. Questions must be sent via Twitter. Tag @siuecab and use the tag #SIUECatfish to identify your questions.
