re: Facebook Fakes: Many Users Don't Exist
This stinks you mean I donGÇÖt have as many real friends as I thought. Lol I read the article describing the study that is mentioned and it doesnGÇÖt really come as a surprise. It also does not mean that FB is not a useful tool for businesses. It depends on your business and how much you based your marketing off of FB statistics. I foresee people looking for alternatives to FB and there are some hot up and comers, Pinterest being one of them. I am sure that there a large number of reasons that an individual would want a duplicate or fake page if they are not 100% on the up and up. That is my thoughts on fake accounts.
