So how easy do you think it is to convince a total stranger you've just met that you're actually an old friend? You may expect that it's not so easy, but with the tons of information people are sharing publicly online it may be easier than you think. The People's ID Bot Project decided to test this out by attempting to convince five strangers they were old friends, just by using information that anyone could look at online. You can see what happened in the video above.
