THE internet can be a murky place, especially for those politically minded.

LNP supporter 'Holly Watson' and advocate of the Facebook page 'Supporting Campbell Newman and the LNP'  found herself so under attack for her backing of the government's criminal gang laws, she "had to completely change" her own profile.

The trouble is she used a photo of Sydney PR guru and social media expert Catriona Pollard as her profile pic, leading to questions about whether the government was involved in the page and who 'Holly Watson' was.

But she's definitely not Ms Pollard.

"Holly Watson appears to be a fake Facebook profile and they have used my image without permission," Ms Pollard said.

"The page has been reported to Facebook and is under investigation. I am not associated with the posts made by "Holly Watson" to the group page "Supporting Premier Campbell Newman and LNP".
