Corporations are people my friend, but cats aren’t


In a regulatory filing released Wednesday, social notworking giant Facebook disclosed that 8.7 percent of its 955 million active users are in fact fake accounts.

That amounts to 83.09 million, roughly the population of Germany. However, Facebook is promising to clamp down on fake and duplicate accounts.

Facebook chief security officer Joe Sullivan told CNN that the entire Facebook platform is based on people using their real identities and that the company is committed to finding and disabling false accounts.

Duplicate accounts make up 4.8 percent of Facebook’s total users. Many are used by Nvidia and AMD fanboys to troll comment sections on tech sites. Some 2.4 percent are non-human and they include misclassified company profiles, groups or profiles set up for pets.

There are also an estimated 1.5 percent of accounts created solely for purposes that violate Facebook terms, like spamming.
