Today Facebook revealed that is has disabled around 583 million fake accounts in the first three months of 2018. For context, that’s about a quarter of the social network’s entire user base.
Around 6.5 million fake accounts were created every day in the first 3 months of 2018. Luckily, most of these spam accounts were automatically disabled within just minutes of registration.
Facebook still estimates that between 3 and 4 percent of Facebook accounts are not real. That means that with 2.2 billion users, around 66 million of those accounts are fake.
