    Facebook has more than 80m 'fake' users

    Facebook has admitted that more than 80 million user accounts on the social network may be fake.

    In a quarterly filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Facebook said that about five per cent of its 955 million members have duplicate accounts and around 83 million accounts could be fake.

    The news sent shares in Facebook below $20 for the first time, though the price climbed back to $20.04 by the end of trading. The social network floated in May at $38 per share.

    Facebook is currently valued at around $58 billion, close to half the $104 billion that it briefly reached on the day shares went on sale.

    In its SEC filing Facebook said: "While these numbers are based on what we believe to be reasonable estimates of our user base for the applicable period of measurement, there are inherent challenges in measuring usage of our products across large online and mobile populations around the world."

    Facebook estimates that 8.7 per cent of accounts - around 83 million - are fake or duplicate accounts. That means Facebook's fake users outnumber the total users for Instagram, the picture sharing site Facebook bought earlier this year. Instagram has 80 million members.

    In March, Facebook said it estimated that up to six per cent of user accounts were fakes or duplicates. The increase has come because Facebook is now also counting mis-classified accounts (2.4 per cent) and undesirable accounts (1.5 per cent) in its total.

    Facebook also confirmed that users would be forced to adopt the new Timeline layout for their accounts by next week. The change in design has been voluntary until now.

    Users across the site were annoyed about the forced change, which was announced earlier this year and significantly alters the way each member displays their personal information.

    One user wrote: ďIím sorry but this is rubbish. Iím surprised Facebook hasnít included a compulsory DNA profile section (default to public obviously).Ē

    I hear you can spot the fakes by their duck faces and peace signs? Is this true?

    But, seriously I do wonder how many buyers of their stock were fake or deceased when they went public. They are tossing around money like God tosses stars.

    Yep, probably people trying to win a contest, or using them to "Like" their own page to gain popularity. I think it's harder to make additional accounts now because they might do mobile verification.

    As they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure... lol

    IMO the whole idea of facebook is shit. Too much of privacy at risk. Very very poor security system in place. Hundred of accounts are hacked on a daily basis. Total nonsence i guess.

    Facebook is one of the dumbest thing ever made. If you need Facebook to keep in touch with your friends then you have a serious problem.
