A good third of humanity uses at least once in the month of Facebook – the claimed figures, the social network, at least in his quarter. 2,27 billion different users to access pay, according to the last quarter on a monthly basis to the network – and advertising, it is one of the most valuable platforms in the world. But now, a former classmate of Mark Zuckerberg’s doubts, of all things.

More than half of Facebook users to a Fake-Account, claims Aaron Greenspan, in a Report he published on his analysis-page “plain site”. The report refers especially to the fact that the Facebook publish user numbers “contradictory and absurd”, as Greenspan.

in fact, the company reported in a quarterly Report of its efforts to combat false Accounts. Alone in the first nine months of 2018, the network will have switched off according to the publicly accessible report 2,137 billion in wrong Accounts – almost as many as it reports monthly users.

In this case, the network wants to have found nearly 100 percent of the Fakes themselves, only a tiny fraction has been reported, therefore, of users.

Greenspan appears to be Facebook’s estimate of Fake Accounts, which varies depending on the indication, between 3-4 and 10 per cent, solely on the Basis of these Figures as much too low. He expects that number beyond 50%. In doing so, he also takes into account that the agencies that Fake sell Accounts, claim a detection rate in the single-digit percent range. You have tens of thousands of Accounts. As long as they are not noticeable, for Facebook’s automated Search barely as Fakes. Also second accounts of people who have forgotten their password or Account beyond the work colleagues want to be recognized by Facebook for the same reasons, Greenspan.

As evidence of its adoption, the study provides chat to on the one hand, show that Zuckerberg is the value of the high numbers of users are aware of, and him on the other hand, ethical concerns do not stop. “Come on, you can be unethical and still be on the clean side. So I live my life haha”, should Zuckerberg have written to a fellow student. Many of the Chats have already been for a long time published.
