Social networking king Facebook is now in cleaning process. They are trying harder to remove all the fake accounts from their database. facebook is having more than 800 million users worldwide.
Official figures from Facebook say as many as 8.7 per cent or 83 million accounts on the network are bogus. About 4.8 percent of them are duplicate, 2.4 percent are user-misclassified accounts and 1.5 percent are “undesirable” accounts.
Accounts that use a generic name instead of a proper name, use images of celebrities/cartoon characters as profile image, or do not have “enough friends,” may come under the Facebook scanner, says Facebook India Business manager Pavan Varma. If we found a malicious account user will be requested to provide a valid id proof to continue using that account, He added.
