Dailymail: Facebook revealed today there are now more than 83 million fake users on its social network.
The astonishing figure makes up 8.7% of all Facebook's 995 million active users.
Why is this even coming up as some sort of surprise? I know so many people who abandoned their accounts due to boredom or just not caring anymore.
The media pretending this is a big surprise because of the stock market crap..... Lets think about this....EVERY single person I know with a Facebook has at least 2 other ones. Rather it be for their business or simply to talk on things without using their real name. MOST people I know have 4 or more.
If I were an advertiser on Facebook, I would not be concerned about fake profiles if they aren't claimed as regular "users."
