2.Recent wall posts- Check out the wall of the user and if there are messages like thanks for adding ,can we be friends, do I know you and these posts are unanswered it is bound o be a fake account . 43% of the fake accounts have never updated there status .

3.Recent Activities - If the recent activities states that the user is just adding friends without joining any groups or liking any pages it is likely to be fake.

4.Friend List - If maximum no of friends are of opposite gender then it can be assumed that id is created for fun purpose or random dating.

7.Check info - If there is no ideal information about a school or a collage then the user might be there for fun. or it can be like just a branch say for example the user might have updated Sunbeam Schools in his info so that he could add friends in bulk from all branches like Sunbeam School has 15 Branches so instead of specifying which branch it could be like mentioned above .

8.Google Search- Google search for terms like fake girl image or what slinga malinga direct yorker  search the image .
9. Name - Well I can write a book on this. See names are picked seeing many factors .Generally the names picked are most common or even same . You should judge seeing your network.
